Art Now: The Fate of the Gallery

Esteemed gallerist Betty Cuningham opened her first gallery in 1972. Ten years later she joined Hirschl & Adler Galleries, and after sixteen years she moved to the Robert Miller Gallery. In 2004, she reopened Betty Cuningham Gallery, where she represents many internationally renowned artists including Rackstraw Downes, Mia Westerlund Roosen, Philip Pearlstein, and William Bailey.

David Carrier taught philosophy in Pittsburgh and art history in Cleveland. A much published art critic, he currently writes for artcritical.com and the Brooklyn Rail. His most recent book, with Darren Jones, is The Contemporary Art Gallery. His book with Joachim Pissarro, The Blind Spots of Art History: How Wild Art Came to Be – and Be Ignored is forthcoming. He is currently writing books about the painter Lawrence Carroll and, also, Naples.
