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. Which event has been the most crucial since you opened your gallery? I’d say when I hired my director Marie Catalano. She runs the company on a day to day basis while I oscillate between panic and self-determination. Without her I’m pretty sure the gallery would just slip like sand between my fingers. With regards to crucial moments I’ve shared...

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.

A big challenge is that most people who are buying art regard it as their leisure and hence are not aware that for the gallery and the artist it’s actually a business that they need to live from. How would you describe the...
