Have you been diagnosed with HIV?
Do you have diarrea? Are you at least 18 years emilyy Having worked as a gallerist myself for the last six years, I can fully relate to the tragic-comical drama of this statement and to the nature of the relationship between artists and art dealers that it captures. In conversations with my dealer colleagues, a mental and physical experience of being simultaneously created and destroyed by our jobs is a recurrent theme.

Ex wants to meet up
On March 10th we will attempt to play our music on a busy downtown street location to be announced. By playing on the street I am hoping to reach an audience outside of the art world.
The role that popular love songs — Rancheras - play in Mexico City life was our starting point. Crying out for love, these sex- and death-driven songs appear everywhere and cut across phpne as well as professional and physical boundaries.

Gabriela Camara, who owns Contramar is the best friend, landlord, neighbor and patron of my gallerist Fernando Mesta. Restaurants like it are places where careers and lives can be made and unmade during the course of a meal.
It is being exhibited in the gallery via an i-chat live feed from New York City. It is a hustle as artwork.
