Occupation Independent curator
Did you change the way you dressed when you transitioned from gallery owner to independent curator?
Being at the gallery was like being on a stage; people were interested in my aesthetic, from what was on the walls to my person. I wore heels all the time. Behind the scenes at a museum, or in my office, I definitely do not.
You’re in a field known for creative expression. Still, are there rules?
Don’t compete with the art. When taking clients to galleries or art fairs, I need to look sharp, but I don’t want to be what they’re focusing on.
Is your approach to shopping for clothing similar to shopping for art?
I prefer to buy one thing of better quality than 20 of lesser. And I like pieces with staying power.
Can you size up people’s taste in art by what they’re wearing?
It’s definitely one more piece of data.
What’s the last thing you purchased?
