Matthew Marks

From New York (May 9, 2005) on Matthew Marks:
"Toward the end of his senior year, he told a member of the art department that he planned to become an art dealer. The instructor, he says, looked him in the eye and told him not to get his hopes up: “He said, ‘They’ll eat you alive.’”
Now, of course, he gets to do things like drop hundreds of thousands of dollars on making Darren Almond's world's largest digital clock. Straight balling. The rest of the article is worth reading, though it makes Marks look ridiculous at points.
