ALISSA FRieDMAN

Occupation: 

I am a gallerist and art adviser.

 

Favorite part of your job:

I am surrounded by art everyday. I work with artists who are unpredictable and inspiring. I travel the world and no two days are the same. 

 

Heritage/Roots/Background:

My family is predominately Eastern European. My grandmother on my mothers side was a painter, and my grandfather on my father’s side collected art.  I grew up in Boston and came to NYC for college where I still live.

 

Top 3 artists/songs on your Spotify:  

This is a hard one as I listen to a lot of music.  Here are a few things I’ve been listening to this week.

- "I Didn’t Know What Time It Was"by Cecile McLorin Savant

- “Clap Eyes” by HVOB

- “Lucky Girl” by Jazzanova

 

Best advice you've ever received from another woman: 

Be outspoken and don’t blend in.

 

THIS SPACE MEANS TO ME: 

This space is beautiful, and full of light.  It has the elongated proportions of a church - a kind of sacred space for art on the Bowery!
