Lunch with Laurie Anderson

“In the ’80s, it started being more about money. I thought I was joining the art world, but I was really joining the art market and it’s just very — you know — now everything is about NFTs,” she says. “They’re excited about the money. Which is OK. But it’s about the market, with the cover of it being about the art.”
As much as I'm excited about the technological potential of NFTs, this comment from Laurie Anderson in her lunch interview with the FT is a good way to frame what has been going on in the past year.
I enjoyed the interview but I feel the journalist could have gone much deeper into some topics.

Thanks for sharing, love the idea of her "car symphony". I think it's interesting how many of the big NFT artists today are notable for the amount of money they've made rather than for the art they've made. It'll be interesting to see how that changes.

Physical art and NFT can and will eventually co-exist together seamlessly; but for now, the allure about the quick money eclipse the art appreciation...

The possibilities are there just waiting to be used for them to even work together as one - I'm sure the big guys will start to implement them first, like Pace and Urs Fischer already did, and the smaller ones will eventually follow

Would have also loved a little more in depth NFT talk with her. Wonder how she would feel about an artist like IX Shells ❤️🐚
