Andrew McClintock, owner/director of Ever Gold [Projects], was interviewed for The New York Times article “The Art World’s Elephant in the Room,” which is excerpted below.

LONDON — It’s one of the most celebrated graphs ever produced by economists.

The chart, first published in 2013 by Branko Milanovic and Christoph Lakner using data from the World Bank, shows global income gains from 1988 to 2008. The graph climbs sharply on the left, indicating how outcomes improved in the developing world from the fall of the Berlin Wall to the Great Recession. Further to the right, it shows how equivalent outcomes declined dramatically for the working and middle classes in the developed world, but soared for the planet’s wealthiest 1 percent. This arrestingly unequal pattern of global income distribution has become known, famously (at least to economists), as the elephant graph.

What does this have to do with the art market? Well, pretty much everything. A decade after the fall of Lehman Brothers and Damien Hirst’s era-defining “Beautiful Inside My Head Forever” auction at Sotheby’s, the art market remains one of the most glaringly visible symptoms of global income inequality.

“People, particularly younger people, have much less desire to own stuff,” said Mr. Bayley, the cultural critic. “There’s consumer fatigue. And if you’re never going to be able to afford to buy a house, what’s the point of buying the stuff that goes in a house?”

And yet dealers and auction houses keep plugging away, coming up with new initiatives and strategies to keep the grass roots of the market alive, if not verdantly green.

“I show a lot of emerging artists, and under $20,000 is definitely the harder market,” said Andrew McClintock, director of Ever Gold [Projects] in San Francisco. “It’s always been a struggle.”

But unlike Berlin, the San Francisco Bay Area is awash with tech wealth, some of which is trickling to California’s contemporary art dealers.

Enigmatic drawings of tech-inspired tarot cards by Mieke Marple (who also formerly co-owned Los Angeles’s trendy Night Gallery) are currently among Mr. McClintock’s best sellers in the $3,000 to $10,000 range, he said, adding that younger collectors were encouraged by flexible payment plans and invoices payable in cryptocurrency. “Gallerists need to start thinking of themselves as entrepreneurs, not sit around waiting for a client to walk in the door,” Mr. McClintock said.

News / Expansion

January 2019 marks Ever Gold [Projects] ten-year anniversary and to celebrate we are doubling our exhibition space inside the Minnesota Street Project complex beginning this September.

 

This expansion is a direct result of the new and sustained collector activity we’ve seen developing throughout the Bay Area with increased local sales and enthusiastic foot traffic. Our additional 1,500 square feet of exhibition space, located on the ground floor and across the atrium from our current location, will allow us to organize larger and more comprehensive exhibitions by utilizing both spaces, or to host two exhibitions simultaneously.

The ongoing international spotlight on the Bay Area has enabled room for San Francisco to grow its cultural footprint and become a leader in contributing to global culture, not just in innovation and industry, which in turn has brought world-class institutions and collectors to support those efforts.

The first exhibition we open with as part of the expansion is Defying the Narrative: Contemporary Art from West and Southern Africa, a group exhibition featuring work by fourteen African artists which will be on view in both exhibition spaces from September 8 to October 27.

From November 10 to December 21, we will present concurrent solo exhibitions of new work by Mario Ayala and Joey Wolf, two young Los Angeles painters working with the figure in very diverse aesthetic and material practices.

In January and February, we are thrilled to be working with the Robert Graham estate to present the first solo exhibition the artist has had in San Francisco since the late ’90s. This show will be accompanied by a group exhibition of spherical influences on Graham by artists of California lineage from the ’60s, ’70s, and beyond.

In March and April, we will present an expansive survey of work by Kour Pour from the last four years, utilizing both exhibition spaces.

This will be followed by concurrent solo exhibitions of new work by San Francisco based artist Christine Wang and London based Kate Groobey, with more exhibitions to be announced in the coming months including the continuation of small presentations in our second-floor project space.

We look forward to seeing you at the gallery.

Within Minnesota Street Project’s first building and central hub located on its namesake avenue are about a dozen other galleries, including the last gallery to sign in that space, Ever Gold Projects — run by a San Francisco native, Andrew McClintock, who grew up riding his bike in the Dogpatch. When Ever Gold’s previous lease became unaffordable in the Tenderloin, just under a year ago, McClintock relocated. “Conceptually, there is much more space out in the Dogpatch — space to think and breathe in this ever-encroaching city,” he says. “I saw my sales more than double last year, and our shows are being seen by thousands of people.” This Saturday, McClintock will open a show that puts Kazuo Shiraga, a master of the Gutai group, and the current market darling Kour Pour in dialogue. 1275 Minnesota St., Suite 105, evergoldprojects.com
