The Salvage Art Institute sounds really fascinating. Not only do they take “irredeemably” damaged art, they pledge NOT to let that art regain “value.” https://www.artsy.net/article/artsy-editorial-artwork-damaged-repair
trying to force value onto art is almost always something which benefits galleries, not artists, so I’m very pro that stance.
@platypus the anecdotes about how all of the secondary group involvement (the guards, the shipping companies) seem completely incapable of handling the idea that the not-art is not a valuable asset to be protected are particularly fascinating
@platypus the most interesting thing to me is that this is a somewhat groundbreaking idea for an art museum exhibit - for adults. For a children's exhibit, movable and interactable pieces is the norm.
