Semo left Marlborough Chelsea to join the new Lower East Side gallery Lyles & King. With respect to the absence of other female artists at Marlborough Chelsea, she says: “In my time at the gallery, I’m aware of at least three strong artists (who also happen to be women) who were courted and offered representation by Marlborough Chelsea, and it was the individual artists who turned down the offers. I don’t pretend to understand why these women said no, but the fact is that the gallery does not hold all the responsibility here.”
