That'll be why there's an ad from Jeffrey Deitch on the index page? I
don't see it supplanting traditional galleries just yet... Seems this
project is based on Saatchi's "Your gallery" community which has been
going for a while: http://www.saatchi-gallery.co.uk/yourgallery/
Saatchi makes similar claims about his project.
I think communities like this supplement rather than supplant: eBay
created a new market and new opportunities for small businesses, but
it has not replaced conventional retail.
