內容簡介

當代藝術的價值如何衡量,由誰決定?
《葡萄酒宅神》作者比昂卡.波斯克,
這回潛入藝廊、評論家和收藏者的世界,
生動呈現藝術產業的瘋狂與美好。
 
  得獎記者、出色的報導文學作家比昂卡.波斯克(Bianca Bosker)曾前往侍酒師的世界臥底,寫下《葡萄酒宅神》,以幽默又犀利的文筆,記錄下爆笑、駭人的味覺探尋之旅。
 
  這一回,她則是跟著藝術家朋友,勇闖競爭激烈的當代藝術圈,再次以坦率、令人發噱,卻也夾雜著思考辯證的筆法,把在藝廊、展館的所見所聞,記錄在新作中。無論您是藝術愛好者,或是對藝術價值抱持懷疑論者,這本書都將滿足您對這個圈子的好奇心,挑戰對藝術鑑賞的想像,重新思考、感受自己與藝術之間的關係。
 
  藝術收藏圈,都是誰來定義,哪些作品具有收藏價值?藝廊間彼此競爭激烈,一般人理當打從內心喜歡、欣賞這些被挑選出來的作品,以證明自己的眼光嗎?究竟什麼是藝術?是有錢人砸錢炫富、作為另類投資的神祕圈子?是藝術從業人員矯揉造作、哄抬收藏價值的產業?
 
  作者親身到藝廊實習、到古根漢美術館當保全,到藝術家工作室,感受如嗑藥般高潮迭起的創作和生活節奏……意外挑戰欣賞當代藝術的界線,發現自己對推銷藝術品還挺有一套……偏執瘋狂的探究之旅,令人嘖嘖稱奇!(文/博客來編譯)

AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

"Get the Picture is one of the funniest books I’ve read . . . Brilliant." --The Washington Post

"A gripping and often hilarious investigation into the art world. . . . Bosker goes full Tom Wolfe." --TIME

"Funny, whip-smart, and gorgeously written, Get the Picture will forever transform the way you see. . . . I loved every word." --Suleika Jaouad, New York Times bestselling author of Between Two Kingdoms

The New York Times bestselling author of Cork Dork takes readers on another fascinating, hilarious, and revelatory journey--this time burrowing deep inside the secretive world of art and artists

An award-winning journalist obsessed with obsession, Bianca Bosker’s existence was upended when she wandered into the art world--and couldn’t look away. Intrigued by artists who hyperventilate around their favorite colors and art fiends who max out credit cards to show hunks of metal they think can change the world, Bosker grew fixated on understanding why art matters and how she--or any of us--could engage with it more deeply.

In Get the Picture, Bosker throws herself into the nerve center of art and the people who live for it: gallerists, collectors, curators, and, of course, artists themselves--the kind who work multiple jobs to afford their studios while scrabbling to get eyes on their art. As she stretches canvases until her fingers blister, talks her way into A-list parties full of billionaire collectors, has her face sat on by a nearly-naked performance artist, and forces herself to stare at a single sculpture for hours on end while working as a museum security guard, she discovers not only the inner workings of the art-canonization machine but also a more expansive way of living.

Probing everything from cave paintings to Instagram, and from the science of sight to the importance of beauty as it examines art’s role in our culture, our economy, and our hearts, Get the Picture is a rollicking adventure that will change the way you see forever.
