Emperors Club and Contemporary Art
Everybody knows: New York governor Eliot Spitzer has been busted for taking advantage of the pricey services of a call-girl ring called the Emperors Club.
This astonishing revelation, and Spitzer’s subsequent resignation from office, has been headline news for several days.
It turns out the story has a fine art angle.
The company that ran Emperors Club VIP, the Emperors Publishing Media Group, also runs a parallel website titled Emperors Club Contemporary Art (the website remained live). The firm claims to link artists and dealers with "the ultra-affluent market (millionaires and billionaires) and some of the richest people in the world," and give meaning to their super-rich clients’ lives as well. "One of the many ways by which we create and add special value to already extraordinarily affluent lives," the website says, "is by enabling direct access to some of the world’s most captivating, authentic contemporary art available."
