This week: The cost of dispensing with art administrators is paid dearly by those who care about contemporary art. Example: Johannesburg editor Kathryn Smith found out by chance that major work by South Africa's most celebrated ex pat artist, Marlene Dumas, now resident in Holland, was being exhibited at the Market Gallery. Who knew about this exciting exhibition? Nobody. No publicity had been sent out. The gallery is, of course, directorless since Stephen Hobbs left, having declined to raise his own salary. Result? The art world will now have to wait until the tapestries, destined for the Constitutional Court, are hung in the yet-to-be completed building to see them. See Reviews.
