14 Young New York Dealers to Watch
Andi Potamkin: How did you get to where you are today? Do you have any advice for aspiring art dealers?
My fiancée and I opened Three Squares Studio, a hair salon and art gallery, in 2009. We put up seasonal art exhibitions, running three or four months each, that mirrored the energy of the season. I did installations with Scott Campbell, Robert Loughlin, Alice Lancaster and Carlos Aponte, and I had a terribly fun time at it.
What do you think the future holds for the New York art world?
I really like what I am seeing happening with art fairs. They open up buying art and shopping for art to so many people who wouldn’t have had access to it otherwise. Max Fishko and Jeffrey Wainhause are launching a new fair called Art on Paper this March on Pier 36 and I’m pretty excited about that one. Everything in the fair is made of, based on, or inspired by paper. Brilliant.
