TBF at Christie’s LA with Troy Carter


Josh Baer sat down with Troy Carter, Founder and CEO of Venice Music, for our third annual talk at Christie’s Los Angeles. The music manager and longtime collector shares his perspective on the challenges artists face when their careers take off all at once, explaining why, “Artists have to have permission to be artists with a capital ‘A’.” He and Josh also discuss the evolution of celebrity culture and the art scene in Los Angeles, how galleries can stay ahead of the curve, and the artists Carter is collecting today. This talk was recorded Wednesday, February 28, 2024.
