It is also an “ART” to understand the associated economic factors, which links it all together to a wholeness.

Works of art of any kind which are handmade by professional artists will usually be either for sale or presented in many ways in which the viewer can benefit from considering the consummate art devices.

There are many creative ways in which artists either exhibit n galleries, museums or major events established by organizers, private or public organizations.

Any artists in event or establishment engaged in the art field should be aware of the costs for a good art exhibition or concert in order to satisfy the audience. Concerts will attract a larger number of spectators. Top professional musicians and singers usually receive a large fee to appear on stage. And why? ….. The risk for an organizer is simply not so big against an exhibition that spans a longer period, but with a significantly lower number of visitors.

Artists today who will sell their works of art will often be better off if they themselves are organizing their own exhibitions with all and this will entail in terms of economic factors and expenses as well as their own art works to be sold.

In Antibes, France where I reside, it has become common for artists renting premises for their own exhibitions and Picasso, of course, inspired many contemporary artists from the periods when he lived in this area.

Exhibitions with many artists in one and the same venue will obviously still be established, but with a lower ambition level than before. Sponsors are already in retreat and admission revenue will be the sole source of income for the organizers, plus any receipts for the rental of booths and more.

Unfortunately, I also note that many forms of art have been down-prioritized in all European countries – and this is both private and public organizations that have plenty of work to keep their heads above water in this financial crisis.

Art will always survive with or without income for the performers just as we know it from previous worldwide crises, where art incidentally was done in top-class just as we can see it at the Picasso Museum in Antibes, France.

Crises of any kind have usually favored the music world and this is also what we see today. Man is by nature and innate qualities always used music and the song’s potential as a distraction and source of inspiration to any spiritual or experiences as a bulwark against the realities of the world when it suddenly get too close to the fear of future unseen factors. 

All the best from
