EDITORS PAGE

y entry in to the world of fashion photography was rarified and magical. And much of it started out of mere coincidence through house sitting for a friend at the right place and the right time. Although I was a painter, I had never picked up a camera before, and never had any aspirations to do so. But it just so happened this house I was in was being used by Richard Avedon for a photo shoot. As I watched him work I knew instantly that this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. From there I began as Avedons unpaid trainee, he then became my mentor after which; American Vogue became my first client. Muse will evolve with each continuing issue and will include interviews and profiles with guest photographers, artists, writers, collectors, and gallerists. Guest curators will lend their expertise to selecting the photographers and their photographs. There will be works of fiction inspired by the photograph in the issue, also created by emerging writers. Unlike our inaugural issue, in which the artists could submit work on any subject matter, our subsequent issues will theme inspired. It is incredibly important for Muse to have broad appeal and community support the more exposure we give emergent photographers who wouldnt necessarily have a platform to display their work. In our premiere issue guest artists Anthony Goicolea and Sarah Greenberger Rafferty are featured along with their work. Diane Echer, an emerging writer inspired by Tucker Friends photograph wrote a work of fiction. And finally there is Dmytri Kippers interview of Ann Schaffer, art consultant, collector, curator, and board member which provides Anns advice and experiences as a collector. I am pleased to welcome Ellen Schweber as Muses Editorial Director. Her contribution and collaboration has been invaluable in making this issue as diverse and interesting as it is. Being an art consultant and collector Ellens knowledge and scope of emerging art is comprehensive. Her unerring eye and intuition in spotting new talent is uncanny. We are lucky to have her! I am pleased to introduce to you the first issue of Muse Magazine, and hope you enjoy the incredible work our artists have created. The magazine is released quarterly, and the ART OUT section is updated on a need to know basis, so keep checking in!

MUSEE / Interviews / Anthony Goicolea


Although Anthony Goicolea is perhaps best known for photographs that explore the concepts of youth, homo-eroticism, and identity, in which he serves as his own model, he has also deeply investigated such themes as displacement, environmental destruction, and the human obsession with shaping nature to fit our needs. Whenever Goicolea does serve as his own model, he plays multiple characters -- wearing different wigs, outfits, facial expressions -- who sometimes all appear in the same photograph. The mood those photos give off can be eerie and playful, a strange mix of A Clockwork Orange and Kids in the Hall. Whereas Goicolea's carefully staged black-and-white and color photos of nature explore various scenarios -- all digitally composed -- in which the city, in one way or another, creeps into the forest. For the past 15 years, Goicolea has skillfully been using digital manipulation in a way that does not call attention to itself; rather, it reflects his aesthetic and conceptual vision -- whether it is psychological or ecological. A retrospective of his work, titled Alter Ego, is now at the North Carolina Museum of Art, in Raleigh. Beside photographs, it also features his paintings, video, and mixed-media installations. His art has also been featured in many prominent museums and galleries, including the Whitney Museum of American Art and The Guggenheim Museum of Art. Goicolea lives and works in New York City.
By Dmitry Kiper

Q: Is procrastination a friend or an enemy? A: I guess its a frenemy. I feel like I shoot myself in the foot sometimes because I dont leave myself enough time. A lot of times that pressure keeps me from being too preciousso then I am forced to take risks that maybe I wouldnt normally take. Q: Do you listen to others opinions or criticizm? A: I think I would ask them what it is they dont like about it, if I actually cared about their opinion . . . I think when you are working and you have something in mind and thats not coming across, somebody says, Oh I didnt get that at all from this, you need to figure out what it is that you are doing that is not communicating what it is that you want to communicate. Q: Are you saying that you care more about the communication of your work than you do about the asthetic? A: They are both integral to me. I wouldnt weigh one more than the other. But lets say somebody said that they didnt like it because they didnt like the way that it looked, but my intention was to make it look like that; well then, fine, thats just their own opinion . . . If they are pointing out something that I was trying to do and did it unsuccessfully, and they are recommending a better way to do it , then yeah I will listen to them and sort of take that in to account the next time around.

MUSEE / Interviews / Anthony Goicolea

Q: Would you recommend grad school for people? A: The advantages are that you get a concentrated amount of time to work on things in a very focused way. The disadvantage is the cost (laughs). It just is exorbitant, and sometimes I wonder if it is not more beneficial to take the 40 or 50 thousand dollars that grad school costs and give yourself some time off or do an artist residency or something. I think residencies are an excellent way to get around it, and so I dont think it is necessarily crucial but it does offer you this really condensed concentrated period in which you get to work. There are some programs, like the Bart Graduate program, that seem like a nice halfway step where its just in the summer its really concentrated for about two months and the tuition is not as expensive and then you have the rest of the year to work on your work. Q: What do you think is the smartest thing you have ever done for your career? A: I guess take it seriously, because initially when I first started working I didnt really treat it like a job, and I think once I stated treating it like a job, thats when other people started taking me seriously and things started to happen. The not taking it seriously part didnt last too long. I got out of school and there was a year where I was just sort of flopping around doing whatever. It wasnt a mistakejust sort of a learning curve. Q: Who has been the most helpful to you in your career? A: My friends. I have a group of friends, and we have like a crit group and they all work in very diverse ways: theres a sculptor, theres another photographer, theres a painter. We all approach it with the idea of what it is that you want to communicate and kind of bringing sort of an outside eye into things. I really trust their opinion. Q: What would you say your worst mistake has been in your career, if there is one? A: In a way there are no mistakes, because you learn from everything; so I guess I dont have anything that I would actually pin point. Q: Are there any collections, museums, or galleries you aspire to be in? A: The minute you complete one goal, theres another goal that is on the horizon. Im sure that people who get the McArthur Foundation Genius grant or who have a solo show at the Whitney or MoMA, its not like thats it and there is nothing left to aspire to. Q: Whats one of the things you aspire to? A: I would love to have a solo museum show in the northeast. I have one going on right now in the south. It would be nice to have one where I live. Q: So besides time, what do you think gets you started: inspiration or fear? A: Its usually inspiration. I enjoy the idea of a challenge and learning how to do something and trying to figure it out; that I think is a motivational factor. But I dont feel like I have the luxury of having fear because Im usually a little bit over scheduled. I cant think about being scared. Q: You dont think any of your work in particular comes from any of your fears? A: Sure I think there are things in my work asthetically that I find uncomfortable in real life. The idea of chaos and disorder and things being really cluttered and falling apart and this idea of loss or transition and things being dislocated; those are all things that make me really uncomfortable in real life. I dont want to experience them, but somehow I gravitated towards representing that in my work.

MUSEE / Interviews / Anthony Goicolea

Q: Your early work was about more of a performance. How has it evolved? A: I think I just naturally change my work. When I was doing those self portraits, thats when people began to recognized me and my work; but previous to that I had been doing other stuff. To me it seems like it fits very snuggly on this whole continuum. I could see how from the outside, if thats your starting point, it seems as if it radically shifted or changed or stopped doing one particular thing, but thats not necessarily the case. Q: Since then, do you feel that your influences on your work have changed? A: I am constantly exposed to different things, so with that exposure come new influences. When I was doing self portraiture (Cindy Sherman) was a natural influence, and a lot of painters were also influencial. I think in doing landscapes there were a lot of early American (like the Hudson valley school of landscape painters). But then also the fact that I moved to the country full-time for like a year and half; that was really insirping. I remember the first time I had seen Disney films was as a young adultI never really saw them growing up, we didnt go and see cartoon moviesthe way landscape was portrayed, or nature in general, was really inspiring to me. And the show that I have up now is called Pathetic Fallacy. I went through a big phase where I was reading a lot of Victorian novels and a lot of gothic novels; and this idea or the environment and nature kind of immulating the mood of the characters and almost foreshadowing events is called pathetic fallacy. So depending on what I am reading, I become inspired by that, or new friends that I maketheir interests naturally become part of my interests. Q: What do you want your art to achieve? A: I guess I want it to have an impact. I want people to have an emotional response. But I think I have said it before: I dont want it to be really didactic, so I like the fact that there is an open-ended, ambiguous aspect to my work. Q: Do you think you are a good curator for your own work or do you think someone else has a better eye for it? A: Usually I start out curating it and then I will get advice from the director, and so its sort of a two person job. If I feel really really strongly about something then Ill just stick to my guns. If somebody can present a clearer case as to why they feel something else works better than what I have done then I will listen to it and take that advice. I tend to be over-controlling and micromanage everything, so there are instances where my hand is not involved where it is kind of nice to see what other people do. I just had a survey exhibition at the North Carolina Museum of Art and they did a catalogue which is really nice: all of the essays and that kind of thing, it was really surprising to go through it and see how somebody else curated my work. It was kind of nice and felt very stress-free and felt interesting to see my work through somebody elses eyes in that way. Q: How do you think your work has improved over the years and in what way? A: I think it depends on the medium. In phtography, I feel like I am a little bit more confident in what it is I am able to render or do. I also feel that I am a little bit more loose in a way that I am not terribly concerned with things lining up in terms of perspective or scale; and that kind of thing when I am digitally compositing something, it doesnt necessarily have to be true to life; it just has to work . I think I have given myself more leeway than I had in the past. I think probably the main thing is a greater level of confidence. I feel like when I do things, its a self-taught way of doing things. Its not the way that probably is the most technically appropriate way, but it works for me. I used to be embarrassed by that, but Im not anymore. Q: How important is travel to you and to your work and to an artist, and do you think you will keep traveling? A: I love it, minus the plane flight. I like being exposed to new things and new places. I mean thats how I get new ideas, just through exposure of newness.

MUSEE / Interviews / Anthony Goicolea

Q: What is the best advice you could give someone who is starting their career in art? A: One: to take it seriously. The other: be aware of whats going on, like go to shows and galleries and that sort of thing; and do not just approach a gallery colddo your research. You dont want to go to a painting gallery and submit work that is all photography. It doesnt make sense and people dont appreciate that. Q: Should emerging photographers approach galleries? A: You usually dont. You should have a body or work, something to actually show . The best way to approach a gallery is through word of mouth. I think it kind of behooves you to try to be part of group shows, if possible, just things curated even by friends or whatever, and kind of work your way up. Have your own website. I mean even when I was starting out there wasnt this social networking , there werent even really websites. I think that kind of thing helps. My approach was to have as many people come to my studio as possible to see work and to see what I was working on to create this sort of word-of-mouth type of thing. Online magazines like this are a great way to gain exposure. And then maintain some sort of contact list of people who have expressed interest. As you are doing projects in the future keep them posted of what you are doing. Q: Do you have advice on what NOT to do? A: Dont be abnoxcious. And that goes back to cold calling or just assuming your work is amazing because you just got out of grad school. When I went to school, I guess I was part of a generation that thought Im going to be an artist, which means I am going to be poor, starving, and work at a restaurant my entire life. I think there is a sense of entitlement that is pervasive now: Well, I am going to art school and such is going to buy my whole thesis exhibition and I am going to be an art star. My friends and I never had this idea. There was no concept of art star. I think you can be motivated and driven and ambitiousbut you can also have some humbleness. Q: As far as the pricing of your work: Is that solely up to the gallery or do you have a say? A: Its something that we do together, but they kind of have the last say. They know the business. When you look at something and you look at the amount of time that you have put into it and its selling for such a small amount, youre like Ughhh, it almost hurts. But you know thats kind of part of the whole process and you can incrementally increase you prices in a zone that feels comfortable and makes sense; you dont want to increase them too much all at once, because even if there is a demand, when that demand starts to wean or dry up, then you are stuck with these exorbitantly high prices or when the economy fails, then youve got these prices that if you try to lower them then your previous collectors will get mad because they bought a piece for 15 thousand dollars that is now ten thousand; that doesnt make sense. It is important to do things incrementally and to have patience. Q: How important is your image? A: I dont think its that important. I think a lot people put a lot of energy into this idea of the artist as a persona, but I think when it comes down to it, whats important is the art. Its important to know how to talk about your work. I think a lot of artists fall under this misconception that they are a visual artist and as such they dont need to know how to talk about their work and that their work speaks for itself. Even if your work does speak for itself, you dont always have it with you. You might meet somebody who is expressing interest in you work and wants to know what its about and its important to be able to succinctly say my work is concerned with this and that, and this is my processjust in two or three sentences. Q: Briefly talk about your photo series Pathetic Fallacy. A: The photographs, conceptually they dont exist. They are cobbled together from a variety of different places. They are digitally composited and they are these kinds of large scale mural images that portray this idea of transition or migration or loss. A lot of them have these kinds of boarded up homes or shelters and that sort of thing. They communicate this idea of transition, in a way.

MUSEE / Interviews / Sara Greenberger Rafferty


Sara Greenberger Raffertys photographs hitor startlethe viewer with an emotional force that never seems to settle down. Her photosprimarily of food, women, actors, and comediansexhibit a painterly quality. They are appropriated and manipulated, with such techniques as blurring and water splashing. The effect, in painting terms, is a combination of Expressionism and Abstract Expressionism. And the results are usually fascinating and unsettling. In the last 10 years, Raffertys work has been exhibited all over the United States, at dozens of galleries and museums. In New York, her work has graced the walls of the Museum of Modern Art P.S. 1., Gagosian Gallery, the Rachel Uffner Gallery, and many others. Rafferty spoke to Muse Magazine about her art, technique, inspiration, training in sculpture, and her views on grad school for young artists.
By Dmitry Kiper

Q: At what age did you get into photography? And who were some of the photographers you admired? A: I first learned manual photography when I was about 6 or 7, at a local elementary school day summer camp called Adventures in Learning. We made pinhole cameras and learned how to operate 35 mm cameras and develop our own film and print black and white prints. It was kind of funny to spend those lovely summer days at that age in a basement darkroom. After that, when I was about 8, I got a beautiful Nikkormat camera and a few lenses from my parents. I sort of knew how to use it. I dont remember knowing about photographers at that time, but when I was in high school, my favorites were Richard Avedon, Roy DeCarava, and, later, Nan Goldin. DeCaravas picture of a black man in a dark window from across the room it looks like a monochrome black picture killed me. Q: After getting a BFA in photography from the Rhode Island school of design, you then went on to earn an MFA in sculpture from Columbia. Would you recommend grad school to young artists and photographers? What are some of the advantages and disadvantages? A: I think grad school is an individual choice. Certainly I dont think you need an advanced degree to be a good artist. Some of the advantages include the connections you make among peers and faculty, the investment in two or three years of intense focus on your work, and official credentials to teach college. The main disadvantage is the cost, but thats not the only negative. I think the whole model could be rethought and retooled while still being in dialogue with MFA programs of the past 40 years. Theres also a tendency to focus unfortunately on career over work among MFAs. And, especially, I think the division between media or discipline is increasingly becoming outmoded.

MUSEE / Interviews / Sara Greenberger Rafferty

Q: Any other advice you can give to young artists and photographers? A: If you have any integrity, dont lose it. You dont have to do anything but make your work. Q: Why did you get a degree in sculpture? A: Even though I was in the photography department at RISD, I always made objects and installations. I never really showed a straight photograph until my exhibition in late 2009. I continued doing sculpture, performance, installation, and ephemeral works when I first moved to New York. For grad school, I had only one requirement that I not have to leave New York. I didnt want a summer camp experience. I wanted to keep my job and apartment and life outside of grad school. Columbia was a good fit for me, and I applied under the rubric of Sculpture and New Genres, which made more sense for my work. I would have never gotten into a straight photo program with my work. Q: The other photographer were featuring in this issue, Anthony Goicolea, also studied sculpture in addition to photography. Your work is of course very different, but how has sculpture benefited your approach to photography? A: Actually, when I first saw Anthonys work, I was at a random Miami art fair (pre-Basel) in 1999. It was at the RARE gallery booth. I became quite obsessed with his work and got all of my classmates interested in him too. It was the early days of websites, and Anthony had a website. So even though he didnt have a catalogue or slides in the slide library, we could see his work. As a side-note: for most of my youth and education, we only had access to artists work via catalogues in the library, major art magazines, and slides our teachers showed us. Its very different now. Anyhow, I emailed Anthony and we met somewhere close to the music venue Irving Plaza, near 14th Street. I think I was trying to convince him to hire me as an assistant after I graduated. Back to your original question: I guess the best way to describe my relationship to both sculpture and photography is to say that when I see an image on a screen, I see the computer hardware, and the space where its installed, and how people interact with it as well. Q: When you are at the early stages of a project, do you already know 100 percent how your photos will look like? Or does the creative process serve as kind of guide, letting you tweak your ideas along the way? A: I rarely know what form my work will take. I often try things in different ways, as photos, sculptures, videos, prints, etc. I usually start with a few notions, like some source images, or a relationship, or a feeling, or in the case of my current show [at the Rachel Uffner Gallery] some literature. Then the work comes out of a lot of trial and error and a lot of staring at the wall. Q: Please discuss your creative process for making photos like Rodney, United Artist, and Stage (Gilda). A: Ill start with United Artist, because that was the first of the three, and the process was fairly different. I was working on some small color studies for a show at the now defunct Guild and Greyshkul Gallery, in SoHo. I had this black and white picture of Mary Pickford in a striped apron on a stool. I chose the picture for three reasons. One, because of who Pickford was, a female comic and co-founder (with Charlie Chaplin and Douglas Fairbanks) of the United Artists motion picture studios. Two, because she was wearing stripes, and I was working with stripes, because of their multifaceted associations with pajamas, prisoners clothing, and fairs. And, three, because she was sitting on a stool, and I had been working for a while with stools as a form. I used Photoshop to tone the photograph red, and then I gave her yellow rouge because I was working with yellow for eggs. This all sounds neither here nor there, but this is the process. For Rodney and Stage (Gilda) the process started with the source image as well, in the case of Rodney, its from the record cover for Rappin Rodney. I tried to make him look like a Vietnam Vet. In the Gilda picture, it was the first one I made that wasnt a face-only portrait. Its a full figure, with a stage and audience. It was from a YouTube clip, so I was trying something new, more of which you see in my current show. The rest of the process was the same: I printed out the pictures small on an inkjet printer, added water on the floor or on another structure, waited for it to dry, and then I photographed the prop using a scanner. Then I edited the files in Photoshop. They were all printed using light exposed to sensitive paper like traditional photographs.

MUSEE / Interviews / Sara Greenberger Rafferty

Q: Are there any rules you follow or advice you can give with regard to incorporating humor into your work? A: I actually dont think my work is funny. I think its pretty sad. I dont think work that is trying to be funny, or that is only trying to get a laugh is the best approach. Much good humor hits you in the gut and points to kinds of failures or inadequacies. Q: Is procrastination an enemy or a friend? A: For me, a frenemy: its a friend because I'm fairly intimate with procrastination as a mechanism, and its an enemy because in general I think procrastination as an avoidance of heavy lifting is not so good. Q: Are you involved in writing your own press releases and other related material? A: I try my best not to be. I dont think its my job and I hate to be the one that might tell someone how to read my work. I hate most press releases, because I think they are overwrought and used as a crutch; but I also see their point. That being said, I usually get to preview and make suggestions about these kinds of things when it comes to my own shows. Q: Do you collaborate with curators for your exhibits? A: Yes, I do. Its different in each case. Some curators have a specific piece in mind for their show, and some may commission new work. Especially in group shows, curators contextualize your works among other works, and that is invaluable. Q: Whats the best or smartest thing you did for your career? A: I try not to do things for my career. On my cynical days, I would say the smartest thing I did for my career was pay and continue to pay for fancy higher education. And I gained access to certain connections that way. Q: What current artists in any field do you find the most fascinating or groundbreaking? A: This could be a list of hundreds, but artists who I don't know personally but have been interested in recently include Oliver Laric, Frances Stark, and Mai-Thu Perret. Q: What are you working on right now? A: Im continuing to work in the veins represented in my current exhibition including smaller c-prints to expand the constellation of image inundation on a wall, more acetate works, and more Plexiglas works. Q: Is there an artistic field that you have not yet tried but would like to? A: I could see myself working on a stage production at some point. Q: Who are your biggest influences? A: My friends. I have a constant dialogue about work, life, literature, and the world with my friends. Many friends have been with me throughout my entire career, so it's easy to talk shorthand with them. Of my friends, my husband is the most honest as well as removed since he doesn't make art and his perspective is invaluable.

MUSEE / Short Story / Sniper


He got to my street in the dead of night. Like any outsider, he had a five-minute stay expectancy. After an hour he was still there and the street was his. He was shooting. That night I was outside the dive where I had a gig. By the time he got here, it was over and I was just sitting on the sidewalk, smoking. His battered car wheezed up the hill. He scanned the place, his arm hanging out the window. He cruised up and down, looking for the perfect spot. He was up to something. He finally killed the engine right across from the bar. The cars windows had a crank handle. Unbelievable. Man, if youre going to get a car, get it right. He rolled up the window and turned around to unlock the back door. When he got out, he looked up and down the street and through me, as if I wasnt even there. Suited me alright. He pulled two things from his back seat. A long, hard case. And a small, heavy bag. He locked the front doors. He locked the back doors. Then he jammed his keys inside his cheap leather jacket and picked up his junk. He walked straight up to the first broken window in the building, climbed inside and set up shop like he owned the place. Got busy adjusting the shutter. Unbelievable. When he was settled, I sent some kids out for bait. He shot. I didnt move. The street went dead silent. Then some guy with a girl hooked around his neck tumbled out of the bar and he shot again. Bam bam. Blinded me.

MUSEE / Story / Sniper

I pulled out my sunglasses. Slow. Real slow. I didnt want him to shoot my way. Not yet. I wanted to stick around a little. Hed notice me at some point. Just not yet. But still, I put on my shades so he wouldnt rob my soul. Then I felt him focus on me. While I waited for it to happen, I thought about my old man. I wished I could remember his face. His smell, I could. Old sweat and once in a while booze to top it off. I almost smiled. Then I thought about me. The feel of the drum under my palms. My girls soft legs wrapped around my waist at night. The first drag of the day. The rhythms of my life. I was getting way too philosophical so I cut the crap. It was the waiting I couldnt stand. I stood up. I knew exactly where he was. And I knew that because of the shades, he couldnt tell if I was looking his way or not. If I was getting ready to pull a fast one on him. I was in the middle of the street now, facing his shutter. I knew he had me in his sights. If youre gonna do it, do it now, and do it right, I told him. Do this man justice. Nothing happened. Im a mellow sort of guy and I get even softer with the smoking, but I managed to lose my patience. I crossed the street and got to the broken window. I framed my face with my hands. I was level with his Cannon just three feet from me, the whole street rounded in its glass eye and me smack in the middle. Shoot.

MUSEE / Interviews / Ann Schaffer


Q: What is your philosophy on collecting? A: My philosophy on collecting is multi-layered. One: I have an encyclopedic collection from the early 1980s to the present. Two: I buy the works of certain artists that I think are very special to me as far as embodying my philosophical, visual, and conceptual needs. Three: I buy something that has a unique vocabularythat if I saw it in someone elses house, I would recognize who did it based on something that is unusual in the photographic process or some use of colors on a pallet or a way of readjusting the truth. Another way of saying this would be a fresh vision. What amazes me is that after collecting this type of cutting-edge contemporary art for more than 25 years, I can still find new photography, new painting, new sculpture, new works on paper. Works on paper are another aspect of our collecting: my husband has much more of a minimal sensibility, and he also likes to know the origin of things. So he likes to see the way a drawing becomes an oil painting or a work on paper on a grand scale. Q: You have your own way of hanging your art. Why did you decide to do it that way? A: Because we have acquired so much art, I had to find a way to hang it where it doesnt just look randomly hung. Each of our rooms and areas have a theme or a similar medium or a sensibility that makes sense when hung together. Each work of art "speaks" to or enhances the other. I think the technical term for this type of hanging is called salon style, as compared to just unique pieces carrying a whole wall, breathing and shining. I have a wall of heads or a wall of drawings that relate to one another. When you first walk in, as you go through my home, everything emerges little by little. For me its conceptualnot about hanging the big piece in the hall. Its a way to accommodate a lot of art. Q: How important is graduate school? A: When I went to college, my father told me that the importance of college is to learn to grow more gracefully over four years and learn how to find answers. I think that anyone who goes for an MFAwho can afford to go for an MFAthe benefit is that there they can work with different mediums, some good teachers, and they can learn more about who they are. Also, a residency is fabulous: many great artists are lucky enough to have a three-year residency, and then, because of where they are, they can get picked up more readily by a good gallery. So I think both are important. Q: How do collectors treat other collectors? A: Thats a huge question. Some cant wait to call you or tell you Oh, I found this fabulous artist you should go look at it. But most of them try to keep their finds and their secrets to themselves. Sometimes if somebody says to me, I want to tell you about this artist that you should buy, I am leery about it because I think they are doing it because they want more people to buy the artist because they want that artist to become better known, so I judge by who the messenger is and then decide after seeing the work and liking it independent of what I have been told. I go to a lot of dinners for artists when they have their shows, and sit among the collectors and artists and exchange ideas. I respect a lot of collectors who collect with the right spirit and the right quest for new things and who get passionate the way that I do when I see something that I cant stop thinking about. Q: Is there any advice you would give to a young collector? A: A: Look at art, go to the galleries, and maybe not buy anything even for a year until you have developed in your own mindwhat it is that rocks your world, what touches your soul. You like something, take a picture of it, pin it on the wall, walk by it for a couple of days and see if it still stimulates you, and then you will see threads developing. The pieces you collect have to talk to each other in a way that is not boring, so mix your mediums. Change it up a bit so that it stays alive, stays challenging, and stays interesting.

MUSEE / Interviews / Ann Schaffer

Q: How often do you rotate or sell pieces from your collection? A: Most of what I own I would never sell. Early on I sold a Felix Gonzales-Torres two light bulbs and a few other things, and I have regretted it ever since. People should sell art because they need the money, because they tire of it, or because they want to trade up. I dont think I have tired of anything I have bought. Also, I dont buy for investment. I do want to think that what I own will appreciate, but if it doesnt, I am still going to love it. Q: Why did you choose to collect the works of emerging artists? A: If you dont buy works by emerging artists, they will never become mid-career or fully-grown artists. They all have to be given a chance. But I dont buy emerging artists because I feel sorry for them. I only buy their work if I feel that they should be given the opportunity to go on because they are doing something with a fresh vocabulary or a different way of painting or drawing. In my opining, there are plenty of artists who should be given that opportunity. I also buy mid-career artists as well as ones who are already established. Q: Is it true that you give museum tours of your house? A: Yes. I give tours on a regular basis to patron groups of museums or non-profit organizations, as well as various charities, churches and synagogues that are looking for a way to raise money for their institutions. So they charge to have people go on tours of homes that have an interesting art collection. I find it very gratifying because, when touring my home, most people ask intelligent questions as they get to see art in a different way. They couldnt imagine hanging something that is so bizarre or cutting edge or strange; and some people may think, Oh my gosh, I have something like that that I could hang in my home, and it would look interesting. Q: Has your taste at all changed in your 25 years of collecting? A: I think that from the very beginning I was willing and able to take a risk. Also, my husband never held me back, and my kids were no more destructive than anyone elses. So I took a chance: I put things on the floor, hung them from the ceiling, stood them up in corners. I embraced works that challenged me intellectually or emotionally. As I walk by many of these art works everyday, they take on new meanings, and sometimes I just go to a room in my house that I havent been in a long time and just enjoy looking and thinking. Q: Did you ever buy a piece of art that was atypical of an artists style because you loved it? Or do you always stay true to what they are known for? A: If I go to a show of an emerging artist or a mid-career artist and I can stand there literally trying to decide among many, I know this is an artist for me. If there is only one piece that I like, I say to myself, Am I liking this for the wrong reason. I love hearts, so maybe there would be a heart in it and I think that I have to have that even if there is no other artwork in the show that I think is also good. I dont buy the artist even if I like the one piece, because I feel as though there is not enough of what that artist does that holds my attention or has a unique vision or vocabulary. Thats what often happens when you get drawn into something that is visually appealing, and then you have to stop and say to yourself, Picture this on an auction block. Is anyone else going to want this or is it going to look like everything else that you see? So I usually know right away that I like something, but I usually spend a few minutes asking myself if Ill like it next year. For me, at this stage of my collecting, it has to be something thats going to stand out.

MUSEE / Interviews / Ann Schaffer

Q: How do you think the art-collecting business has changed since you started collecting? A: When I started collecting contemporary cutting edge art 28 years ago, only 10 percent of all art collectors collected this type of art. You could spend an afternoon in SoHo, see all of the shows, and just really enjoy yourself and take chances on buying, whether it was a Jean-Michel Basquiat on the floor in a gallery or a Keith Haring drawing in a drawer. You knew you were looking at things that were different from what you had seen at various art shows years before. But now, in addition to having over 350 galleries in Chelseastill more in SoHo, still more in the UES the LES, DUMBO, Long Island City, and so on you have a huge amount of art out there and a huge amount of collectors, many of whom are buying because they have money and their consultants tell them to do so, an article or a review tells them to buy it, or a neighbor just bought one. They often dont even have the challenge and the wonderful experience of the quest. They often just put it directly in storage. There are also art fairs all over the world. We now have an art fair probably every month, whether its in Spain, England, New York or Miami. I do understand that for people who cant go to Chelsea, as I do every week or every other week, the art fairs provide a chance for them toI hate to use the expressionone stop shop, but they can see a lot of art. For me the only value of the art fairs is to be able see face-to-face a dealer from France or Spain or Italy whom I really like and with whom I have done business and whose works I collect. But I must admit that I do like to be loyal to American galleries if they carry the same artist as a foreign dealer. Now when I do buy, I really have to spend much more time thinking about why I want to purchase something or why I want to have something be part of my collection. And it just could be some art work of some unknown artist that maybe is in Newark or part of a show that I curate in Summit, NJ every year at the art center where we show a hundred or more artists, many of whom dont show with galleries and whose works are often superior to those of many well-known artists who show in Chelsea. Q: Is there any piece of art that you feel got away from you that you would like to own? A: Oh I am sure there are plenty, but I dont like to think that way. Sometimes when I am looking at works of art, I put a reserve on a piece immediately if I really think I might want it. That doesnt mean I am always going to buy it, but it means that at least I am preserving the chance to think about it over a few days. Thats what I try to tell people who are looking: it doesnt cost anything to put a reserve, but you have to be fair to the gallery and honor that privilege in a day or two and not just keep leading them on. Q: What advice would you give to emerging artists? A: There is a lot of luck involved. It has a lot to do with whom you know and who can help you meet gallerists. But what I would say is that when you finally have that MFA, youve done all of your work and all of your experimentation under a safety net with the school and your professors there, you might not need to be taken in immediately by a gallery until you are sure of what your style or what your method of painting or photography or whatever is, because if you look at most of the well known modernist painters they all painted the same way initially because of what they learned in school and then they developed their own special technique or their own special vocabulary. Sometimes an artist can be stopped in his or her tracks because his or her only goal is to be represented by a gallery the second they get out of school. I can understand from a financial point of view they want to be represented, but they might be better off working in a gallery or working in a museum or working someplace while they are still painting or drawing or photographing and finding their voice.
