  1. David A Ross says:

    The Met wasn’t hiding anything about Sheena Wagstaff’s marriage to Mark Francis. Mark is a distinguished curator and former museum director, who now works for Gagosian. Mark ran the Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinborough, worked a the Centre Pompidou with Jean-Huber Martin Where he worked on both the ground-breaking Magiciens de la Terre and the first major exhibition of the Situationist International, then he came to the U.S. to run the Warhol for several years before returning to London where Gagosian recruited him to do special projects for the gallery. Sheena and Mark have both led serious and important independent art world careers, and to imply that there is something unclean or conflicted about the fact that he works for Gagosian, is silly and insulting.

  2. Tyler Green says:

    In no way did I intend to suggest that they were or that there was anything “unclean or conflicted.” (Was there something in a pretty white-bread sentence that suggested such?) It was merely a notable from the story, a tease intended to motivate people to click through the link.

  3. Scott Lorinsky says:

    Your protestation to the contrary fails to pass the smell test. The implication of conflict is clear in your post and, if this was not your intention, you should rewrite, retract and/or apologize.

  4. Tyler Green says:

    You don’t think it’s an interesting item? That’s fine. But I find nothing there to be confrontational, officious or even conflict-suggesting.

    An interesting window into how the art world works? Yes, I think so. And I hope it motivated you to click-through the link, which was my intention.

  5. Scott Lorinsky says:

    How does this marriage provide a window into how the art world works?
