Contemporary art has become a mass entertainment, a luxury good, a job description and, for some, a kind of alternative religion. Sarah Thornton's shrewd and entertaining fly-on-the-wall narrative takes us behind the scenes of the art world, from art school to auction house, showing us how it works, and giving us a vivid sense of being there.

Rare Book

Review:

'Parachutes the reader into the real nitty-gritty of how it all works - openings, dealers, artists, prizes, auctions et al. Reading this book is like having your own spy in the art world' Alan Yentob 'A thorough insight into the contemporary art world through seven fascinating stories ... a must-have for all art buffs' Tatler 'Curators and dealers provide the insider info and often the laughs, as the closed world of art is systematically demystified' Dazed and Confused 'An excellent, vivid, wittily written book - the characters are tightly drawn, the events covered are important, and the aphorisms come thick and fast - I'm hoping for a second volume' Sunday Times 'A lively, compulsive and splendidly gossipy manual' The Times 'Fascinating, not least because while she was researching and writing, it must have seemed like an insider's view of a world that would last forever. The book may now stand as its memorial' Art Quarterly 'A coherent account that's informative and entertaining - for a casual overview of how the international art scene operate, in all its ruthless eccentric, spectacular glory, Seven Days in the Art World is hard to beat' Jewish Quarterly
