About The Work

Artist, critic, columnist, curator, collector, dealer, and more, Kenny Schachter is a presence and personality that has powerfully impacted nearly every facet of the art world. Schachter grew up just outside of New York with little knowledge of the art industry before his career began after a chance exposure to a sale of lots from Andy Warhol’s art collection at Sotheby’s. Since then, Schachter has made a name for himself as an outspoken writer, commentator, and critic “challenging the elitist rubric of the contemporary art world, making sure all-the-while to have a good time.” Schachter has described himself as “some kind of idiot savant,” often viewed in the art world as both an insider and outsider, having demonstrated great success as a dealer and gallery owner while simultaneously taking aim at the commercial and political mires of the art world through his many writings, including his work as a columnist for Artnet News, and his own portfolio of digital prints and videos.

Up for bid at this year’s auction is a thirty-minute conversation with Kenny Schachter about art, law and the market at large. Schachter’s insights and opinions have prominently appeared in publications such as Artnet News, Avant Arte, Galerie Magazine, The Independent, and many more. He’s been a leading voice on such art and law issues as the recent criminal case concerning Inigo Philbrick, The effects of the COVID-19 on the art world and those who have profited from the pandemic, and even revealing the location of the missing Salvator Mundi.
