W Magazine Spotlights Maxwell Graham and his Essex Street Gallery

March 25th, 2014

W Magazine has published a profile on dealer Maxwell Graham and his Essex Street Gallery space.  Having worked previously with Greene Naftali, Graham has run Essex Street for the past several years, and discusses his approach to running his space.  “It’s good to not do things properly sometimes,” he says. “I don’t always like the shows that happen here—but sometimes it’s not about me. It’s okay if something fails, as long as it’s taking a risk. I don’t want my artists to rely on art to make a living. I almost wish my younger artists would take after the older ones and disappear for 30 years. And, hopefully, I’ll be here for them to come back to.”
