Classy GalleryBeat Television - Mark De Suvero, Gramercy Art Fair

January 25th, 2012 • Paul H-O

Episode 75 Part 2 of 3 (sometimes I wish I could have had more discretion)

A long time ago, in the distant year 1994, medium-sized New York art dealers Pat Hearn, Colin De Land, and Lisa Spellman started an art fair in the the historically seedy Gramercy Hotel, famous for housing rock bands on tour and for it's piano bar. It was also located right across the street from very tony Gramercy Park, exclusive to the residents of said park, and you still need a key to enter it. This was the beginning of the contemporary art fair in the U.S., and would ultimately become one of the most lucrative trade fairs for art on earth, The Armory Show. I used to look forward to hitting the Gramercy Art Fair, with it's funky rooms turned into funkier New York and international galleries. Almost everyone had a bathroom show, and there were plenty of galleries we would never see again on the planet. Basically, it was a home-made art fair, on the cheap and using all the creativity artist and dealer could drum up for a 3 day run of fun, and maybe a sale or two.

GalleryBeat with Tracey Emin @ Lehmann Maupin 2009

August 8th, 2011 • Paul H-O
Tracey Emin and me go back a ways - and whatever people think of her work, they talk about it. And that is more important than merely puffing something up and moving on to the next neutered fashion. Ms. Emin has distinguished herself with a courageous exploration of psyche-exhibitionism and personal history that is done so deftly that she is a visible reminder that an artist can still make people pay attention. She's done it, she hasn't a thing to prove. We still don't get along, and she still talks to me anyway.
