An Index for Artists -
24hr live service
Lets collectors curate shows and pick her artists, then pretends she's a curator herself. Looks for hip instead of good art, then dumps it when it looks bad in a few years. Good space, and her artists from the last decade are good, but the gallery really turned to shit in the last five years.
February 27th is a fool.She is one of the smartest and best equipped dealers in the business. She's tough to be sure, but you'd understand that going in.She will not play the fool.Her daugher Stella is the true star of her life.Which is how things should be.
agree with Colin's Ghost...A.R. is one of the best dealers in NYC. Has a (good) reputation for looking out for her artists' interests.
by looking out, you must mean dumping when they stop selling (she even dumped a dead guy). She cut a friends show short to put up a show by a collector. past her prime.
great gallery w\a great staff. she pays the bills and therefore can do whatever she wants w\her shows. she takes care of her staff,artists,and her business.kinda like elvis.tcb.you don't become, and more importantly, stay successful,by accident.
That gallery does a good job. We need more galleries like Andrea Rosen. What we don't need is a gallery like Moti Hasson. That guy doesn't pay his artists
way past her prime. jumped on some recent artists with potential as they were getting hot. they are no longer hot.
She dropped Charlie White right after he had open heart surgery. I think that's pretty cold.
Sean Landers is leaving. The ship is sinking. She will be the first big gallery on 24th to close. Mark my words.
Just looked at her gallery site and yes indeed, Sean Landers has left her.
Sean Landers shows at Friedrich Petzel which is a great fit for him. Better fit. Andrea is tough, sounds like she can withstand tough climates like this one.
When an artist leaves her gallery, she refuses to take the artist's name off her website. Only primary market gallery I have seen do this. It's the move of an art dealer, not a 'gallerist'.
Having been her assistant for several years I can certainly back up the comments about her coldly dropping artists at the worst moment possible. She is very much all about the money, and is brutal to her staff. Purrs over the artists who make her a lot of money, but if someone isn't she and her directors pretend they don't exist. As to collectors curating, that happened because they spent more than anyone else and she wanted a way to squeeze more out of them. I left because of incessant verbal abuse. Yes, her daughter is her world, but others in her personal life are treated very very poorly.
I am shocked Meckseper and Trecartin wound up here. Why any artist would now join this gallery after knowing how Rosen coldly drops artists at the drop of a hat is beyond me. Perhaps it will be poetic justice for E. Dee if/when Rosen drops these two when they stop selling (prob wont happen, but wishful thinking for that part of me that respects Karma). Dee is terrible, but the artists aren't exactly angels either. And Rosen is ice cold. Everyone's getting exactly what they deserve. Nobody wins.
