Art and the relationship of mis-trust. Many of the Parisian galleries operate on a 'Payola’ system. It is often 100% Pay-to-Play system. It is the 'Art Mafia' at work - invariably referred to as "L'association de..quelque choses" (The Association of.. ‘something’). It is one big syndicate, which obliges the artist to actually pay the galleries to show their works, the result of which inhibits talent and promotes ‘anything but’, providing they can pay. Many 6th district galleries are concerned neither with exhibiting talent nor with selling paintings. They are paid for the exhibition of artworks, by artists who effectively rent out a period of time for their exhibition. Hence, "Don't Trust Art Galleries".
