How about - How long ought artists have to wait before being paid by a gallery for sales? Is it fair for galleries to delay payment to artists to instead use income to invest on the short term (currency/stock/commodity) market in order to finance their outgoings? How much influence do reviews/ published criticism have on sales? How much influence do curated shows have on artists' sales? Have Facebook or blogging actually increased foot traffic/reviews/sales for any galleries? Why are so many gallery staff so hostile and mean? Do you have to be a cunt to do the job? No, but apparently it helps.
