Maximilíano Durón speaks to a new generation of art market tastemakers broadly about their gallery practices. How does having a gallery now differ from a few years ago, let alone a few decades? Have major recent events—the pandemic, protests for racial justice following the murder of George Floyd, the insurgency at the U.S. Capitol building, and more—changed or affected their galleries or their practices? Are brick-and-mortar spaces still relevant? Are art fairs relevant to their business models? How do they think about and grow their artist rosters and community relations? How have their artist relationships evolved? Have their relationships to public institutions changed? Have all sales moved online? Are they in the NFT space?
