UZH Art Market Studies Obrist Schachter June 2017

“Sunday night’s entertainment concluded with a talk between Obrist and Kenny Schachter, which promised at least a few fireworks—Obrist tends to be averse to the  market ills as he jets around the word spilling curatorial pixie dust on spaces and institutions, whereas Schachter is an art market gossipmonger par excellence. Fireworks they did provide.”

Nate Freeman for ARTnews, speaking about a conversation between Hans Ulrich Obrist and Kenny Schachter, organized by University of Zurich Art Market Studies during the Zurich Contemporary Art Weekend 2017.
