▼ Report: Larry Gagosian To Be Indicted

05/04/2010

 

New York art dealer Larry Gagosian will be indicted next month in Moscow on multiple charges of buying sex slaves from a well known Russian collector. The charges of human trafficking span a decade. Gagosian could face life in prison, although experts in the Russian judicial system express doubt he will be convicted. The Russian judicial system is notorious for its corruption including alleged pay offs to drop previous charges brought against the collector who will be indicted along with Gagosian.

It’s reminiscent of stories about 1980s New York art dealer Andrew Crispo.

    Is this one real? Or is it another “Jeff Koons” type story?

    This is real. What do mean “Jeff Koons” type? I don’t think the stories are connected.

    The Tokyo bomb story_was word play. just wondered if this was also. I think i remember Gagosian being connected to some sort of illegal arms dealing in the 90’s but that’s really hazy now. I guess for some people everything is never enough. thanks

    To your comment, “the modern artist eats exile”, I would add, “for breakfast, lunch and dinner”.

    Sex slaves must be stored in Russia. It would be possible to charge GAG-O-sian if said victims
    were here.

    I say no more Federal Pens. for rich scum.

    Put this freak in a real penitentiary. The residents do not like freaks. His punishment would be swift and appropriate for the cfrime.

    While cannot reveal the original source, we can tell you a lawyer for Roman Abramovitch is now confirming the future indictment.

    Dear Art Investors,

    I’ve been an artist for over 25 years. I’m one of those “closet artists” that nobody knows about, but I’ve been refining my craft for a long time.

    I recently fininshed an ink drawing that I’m selling for $4million.

    Who ever is interested in this purchase is invited to my home in Jacksonville, Florida for a couple of days to see the artwork and make a decision.

    I can’t just take a picture of this fine art and post it online. It just doesn’t have the same atmosphere as when viewing it in person.

    Would you be kind enough to pass this e-mail message around to your affluent clientele, and let’s see if I can get a buyer.

    I realize that art is an investment and there are many reasons why an art collector makes a purchase, but when you see this artwork you’ll know that you have made the right decision to buy it. Compare it to any other original masterpiece and you will know. But don’t take my word for it. Come on over as my guest and know it for yourself.

    With kind regards,
    Greg Furie, Artist
