Description


Ronald Feldman Fine Arts is proud to present Human Ecology 101, a group show exploring the significance of the artistic communities that are facilitated and nurtured by art galleries. The business model of the traditional gallery space is facing serious challenges from rising costs and increased competition. As a larger percentage of sales come from art fairs and via the Internet, the necessity and sustainability of a brick and mortar space is coming into question for small and mid-level galleries, particularly in New York. Facing these facts of the contemporary market place, how does one begin to quantify the social importance that the physical gallery space plays? This is an integral part of the equation if we are to consciously build the kind of future art world we want and not simply have it shaped for us by restrictive market forces.
