Artlink has not only set a standard of readability that is exceptional in the field. It has stood firmly against temptations that much of the comparable literature has found irresistible. One of the most insidious of these is the invitation to embrace the artworld’s profitable association with the dealership system and the art market. Another is the pressure to acquiesce in a conception of its role as the public relations arm of the culture industry.
