Question: What is the role of the art gallery today?

Robin Cembalest: I think the gallery has a very strong role today. So, especially certain galleries that have a lot of branches in various cities there is galleries that represent a very large roster of important artists. I really don’t know how to answer that.

Question: Are galleries going to go international?

Robin Cembalest:
You not seeing quiet that, there are cases where galleries are opening in other place. Gozian [phonetic] opened for example in Roam, but what you are seeing instead is that the galleries have increasingly international roasters of artists. Every day we hear about another gallery that is picking up another Chinese artist. All the major galleries have that. Now, the same thing is for with Latin American artist and I think that that’s one thing that you can also say about the globalization of art world is that there is a lot of, may be less with Chinese artist, but there are - certainly in case the of Latin American artist, there is cases where they are not considered Latin American artist, they aer international contemporary artist, which is a true sigh of the globalization of the Art world.

  • Yes, there have been floaters in space. The early days of space exploration were a learning curve!
  • Amazingly, you don't need gravity to digest food. Peristalsis, the process by which your throat and intestines squeeze themselves, actually moves food and water through your digestive system without gravity at all.
