'It's like a marriage' - Alvaro Barrington and Sadie Coles get frank about artist-dealer relationships

Artist-dealer relationships are rarely discussed in public—unless things go horribly wrong. It was therefore refreshing to hear the artist Alvaro Barrington and Sadie Coles, one of the five gallerists that he currently works with, speaking frankly and publicly about how they do business together. The occasion was a Zoom panel on artists' legal rights and gallery representation, organised on 18 February by Brixton’s Block 336 Gallery and chaired by the art and intellectual property lawyer and Block 336 Trustee Jon Sharples, along with Fionnuala Rogers, founder and director of Canvas Art Law.
