But it's an Alaia...



So... yes, people trade art all the time, from haircuts to dental work to far more illicit services. While—of course—a tale as old as time, metallurgically writ no doubt somewhere yonder, I still wonder what a birdman's art collection would look like these days? Do they accept/acknowledge the value of unmonumental trash that is disavowed by the quotidian mores of mainstream AmeriKKKa? Could Sibony score a brick in exchange for scavenged plywood stood upright? I have heard (don't ask where) that Robodaddy call his work "chopped and screwed"...hmm, do the hours committed by the "children of Warhol"/tokion illustrators readily swap hands with narcotic delite without sloshing thru the "what is art?" mud? Can one kill 2 birds with one stone, i.e. slang "rock" or whatev and diversify their assets simultaneously? Did Smith agree to a Deitch show becuz they cut out the "middle-man"/pay with the "real green"? I kinda wanna know...
