What the 60 Minutes Segment on the Art Market Really Said

We’ve refrained from reflecting on the 60 Minutes segment by Morley Safer about the art world market. But since others like Jerry Saltz and Roberta Smith have waded into the commentary cesspool we decided to give you a complete analysis of what was said on Sunday’s program. Read carefully.

Blah blah blah money blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah art blah blah blah dealers blah blah blah money blah blah blah auctions blah blah blah blah blah blah Gagosian blah blah blah art blah blah blah money blah blah blah expensive blah auction blah blah blah I can’t believe it blah blah ratings blah blah blah money blah blah money blah blah blah blah blah money blah blah blah Is that art? blah blah money blah blah blah money blah blah blah blah blah blah blah art fair blah blah blah blah blah blah Deitch money blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah Broad money blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah money blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah Rubell money blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.

Honestly, did any of us expect more from 60 Minutes?

p.s. Roberta, lighten up, it’s just one opinion on TV. Though I like this dig:

These days the art world blogosphere produces so much of its own smug, semi-informed, provincial snark that it is hard for Mr. Safer’s to stand out.

Catty. You’d do well online, Ms. Smith.
