By now, we have a fairly good handle on New York art stars, but we hear less about the people who love them. In two years of writing for AFC, I’ve owed my art-viewing as much to artists as I have to devoted curators, gallerists, and writers working diligently behind the scenes, knee-deep with the rest of us.
Who are these unsung heroes of the art world? I asked leaders of various emerging art communities for their recommendations, and gathered a series of interviews. Today we talk to Deana Haggag and Catherine Akins, Libby Rosof an Roberta Fallon, Tom Weinrich, Alex Ebstein and Seth Adelsberger, and Rod Malin.
