Are sneakers the new Art?

The Phillips Auction House is “the destination for international collectors to buy and sell the world’s most important contemporary works of art.” It’s been known for selling paintings by Warhol and Basquiat for tens of millions of dollars.

From July 16 to Aug. 31 Phillips had a “Tongue + Chic” Exhibition showcasing work from Shantell Martin and Futura.
