Warning to curators

“Today no curator can afford to be ignorant of the market. If you are, you will soon learn a hard lesson when you try to mount an exhibition by a “hot” artist. Either you will find it is very difficult to secure loans, or you may come under pressure from collectors and dealers to include particular works.”
Sandy Nairne, director of the National Portrait Gallery in London, quoted in the Art Newspaper
