Setting a world-wide precedent : The Galerie Pierre Nouvion in Monaco, (César,
Combas, J:P Raynaud, Newton, Jacquet...), spurred on by the artist Fred
Forest, have innovated a market for works of art that sidesteps the
usual criteria and traditional financial aspects that dictate sales in this field.
ART TRADING: A NEW "VIRTUAL" MARKET.

is being developed on the Internet which will surely result in the
undoing of the old...
For the affordable sum of 100 US dollars , you can acquire
an original virtual art work, a customized portion of the "Planetary Network Territory
", created on commission by the artist .
This will be a work totally reserved for you on the network, to be contemplated if and when you wish by means of a secret code ;...The collector
may print out as many numbered copies as required
for commercial ends. He may also
donate the creation to the network by revealing the code of access to the public
... Fred Forest has concurrently created the
"Free-Museum" on the Net
or the "Territorial Museum" to host this type of work.
Payment must be made to the Galerie Pierre Nouvion,
Compagnie Monégasque de Banque, together with the theme of the required work, which will serve as the title.

Ecological", "Nostalgic", "Sulfuric", "Modern"

We reiterate that Fred Forest had
the M.N.A.M, the Centre Georges Pompidou sentenced by the Tribunal Administratif de Paris for refusal to divulge information in June 1995. He wishes to emphasize the fact that he harbours no grievances against the art trade itself, but that he will continue to denounce
the laxness of public institutions towards it.
