Several questions for Ebony HaynesHow would you describe the relationship between your gallery and the artists you represent? Like family: always loving and sometimes dysfunctional. What is your best memory of FIAC? My best memory of FIAC was our first year here in 2017. We presented a solo booth with Jessica Vaughn, a relatively unknown and new artist for us. The work was so well received at the fair, it couldn't have been better. And it set the stage for her first New York solo show the...

Several questions for Jasmin TsouIntroduce yourself: My name is Jasmin Tsou, and I own JTT, a gallery in the Lower East Side that I started in 2012.

GALLERY FOCUS : SCAI THE BATHHOUSE

Several questions for Masami Shiraishi How has the role of galleries changed in the last decade? Many artists we represent have established their global presence over the years. On one hand, we feel proud of our achievement, but this change has created competition with other international galleries. So we now invest even greater effort to promote artists—including those who are under-represented, not limited to younger generations. With my 40 years of experience working in the Japanese...

QUELQUES QUESTIONS À ISABELLA RITTER ET KATHARINA SCHENDLWhat is the most challenging part of running a gallery? Surviving. It’s a very complex business.

How would you describe the...
