“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.”
