Q & A

What are you most proud of?
I am generally proud and emotional every time a project is completed; each exhibition is a journey and being able to work with artists is one of the greatest gifts anyone can ask for.

Which living artist do you most admire?
Right now, Ryan Trecartin. But it’s not admiration, it’s love.

If you could go back in time, where would you go?
I don’t like the idea of going back in time. I want to go far into the future.

What’s your guiltiest pleasure?
Eating pizza and watching eposides of The Good Wife back-to-back, followed by a good dose of Rupaul’s Drag Race.
