The Gallerist Speaks is a series of interviews with diverse gallery owners, directors and curators from around the world.We often hear about the artist behind the artwork, but what about the gallerists behind the galleries, working hard to make opportunities for artists possible in the first place? Here I give gallerists the opportunity to speak about their motivation, philosophy and method behind running a gallery, and the kinds of qualities they look for in artists.
I hope this interview series provides illumination to both amateur and established artists, aspiring gallerists, art lovers, and anyone in between. -Zara Kand
