art label courtesy

The project examines the art infrastructure through various means in regard to one aspect of art labels. Those convey the most standard information of artworks presented. In most cases, it is name, title, medium, data, owner, but the price is not shown. The owner and courtesy of the work in most cases is a commercial gallery.

The artist interest in how capital takes over the art world via various forms of art mechanics and infrastructure.

What interests Vegas here is a turn to art market relations, so biennials and museums expose the relations of the artist and artwork to the commercial gallery. In this regard, it shows what a commercial entity represents the work or artist. In other words, the biennial talks to the gallery to receive support from the gallery, and the deal is made between the art institution and the gallery without the artist involved.
