Social Media Whiz Robin Cembalest Rides the Changes of Art Publishing
January 5, 2017
Robin Cembalest, former editor of ArtNews, on how she transcended journalism, and got into the social media orbit.
"And with the growth of digital and social media, a writer doesn’t necessarily need a mainstream platform to make a big impact anymore. At the same time, obviously, the business model has changed so dramatically that it becomes harder and harder for writers to be compensated for content they produce. Some types of art writing that require significant resources, like investigative journalism, are radically diminished now."
