“The question collectors and institutions should be more concern about is not
about what is good or bad art or which is good or bad art. It is more about which
artwork could stand the test of time and remain relevant in years to come. In other
words it’s about which artwork would remain in the lips of viewers and become classics.
Context thus plays a part. To be a classic, the first defining element is universal appeal.
Not shock appeal. To the institutions, the correct choice could make you a top notch
institution. To the collector, a good choice will define the worth of your collection.
With lots of appeal.”
