About Our Guest Curators: The TAX Collection

Founded in 2015 by Tanner Steslow and Max Berman, The TAX Collection is a multi-modal curatorial platform aimed at providing agency to emerging and mid-career contemporary artists worldwide through public exhibitions, installations, and commercial projects. At their core, Steslow and Berman operate from the position that "without the artist, there would be no 'art'", advocating that in this digital age, now more than ever, artists can acquire the tools to control their own narrative, better negotiate their relationships with galleries, and develop independent, lasting relationships with their collectors and institutions. With almost a decade of experience curating and advising close to 100 exhibition programs and numerous public works projects, The TAX Collection continues to act as a champion for the 'artist' in all aspects of their practice.

For their latest venture, they've partnered with artist and entrepreneur Ted Collier to open Square One Gallery. Located in the historic Central West End of St. Louis, Missouri, Square One Gallery, established in 2024, strives to showcase contemporary artistic voices while connecting St. Louis to the greater international arts community with a diverse, global roster of exceptional artists.
