Shrewd as a shark.And remember all the people making all this money in the secondary frequently make in on work that she showed first.You MUST admire the woman that gave MARCEL BROOTHALERS his first North American exhibition. (I think)She's actually quite shy.Treat her kindly.

Stay Away! trust me.
who is Marcel Broothalers?
@Colin's ghost: I think you mean Marcel Broodthaers, and I am pretty sure that was Marian Goodman, not Mary Boone
i had the pleasure of being shrieked at by Ms. Boone once. or rather she shrieked at my voice mail while in a conference call and pretended to hang up so she could say what she really wanted to say to me to the person on the other line. did the same thing to my dealer. all because her gallery didn't bother to tell me they had scheduled an art handler to come by and pick up work that wasn't finished. i went into major debt to make work for a show there because she had promised to line up sales in advance. and guess what? post phone call no sales. a very unhinged and unpleasant individual. i was warned going in but thought i could use the exposure. almost every person i've talked to who's had business dealings with her, including the art handlers, said she is a grade a psycho who treats everyone that way. undignified, no class.
DAMN!You're right. Goodman was 77 and Boone was 84.Well anyway, Broodthaers is a good point of reference for how ridiculous this whole thing is.People really do pay attention to that because of the context of The Goodman Gallery. At Boone it means something else (money).In the end I agree with Gerhard Richter's comment that "I never had any idea what he (Broodthaers) was talking about." I'll bet most people would agree.And yet, it's at The Goodman Gallery.
God that's freaky about the art handler story. I'm sure there are alot of those out there.
this all happened a while ago. just want to clarify so my story doesn't get anyone in trouble. they have to be using totally different art-handlers now.
I was recently in to see the Isermann ceiling piece. I asked that front desk guy for some information, like a bio. Granted, he must be bored to tears sitting there every day. But no excuse - he told me to look it up on their website!
save a tree, look it up already! 99% of press releases we hand out end up in the trash.
You go to see an Isermann and you'd don't know his bio? Quit whining, pull it up on your iPhone, or research him before or after you go to the show! Save a tree!
"...the MoMA is more market driven than Mary Boone is. Mary Boone will sometimes put something up just to see if people like it. The MoMA would never do that."-Dave Hickey, interviewed by Sari Carel for Zing MagazineMary is my dealer. She isn't intrusive into my creative process, she schedules shows when I am ready, and she has sold every last work of art I have given her ---and paid me immediately. No matter how popular an artist is, that is a feat, and it shows how hard she works. I also appreciate the professionalism of the staff. At another top gallery I've worked with I was put in the position of constantly having to kiss the director's ass to get basic things done, and I felt like I had to tiptoe around another staff member's giant ego. Mary's employees have always been warm and it is a joy to know how dedicated they are. I've had an A+ experience working with the gallery.
