    If the only artist you know is McQueen (we get it, you went to the Met), we're here to help you get your art game on. And hard. To keep you current with the new class of creatives that everyone's buzzing about, we spoke with a real-deal art pro who does this stuff, you know, for a living. As the director of Chelsea institution, the Andrea Rosen Gallery, Andrea Cashman spends her time jetting to Frieze, Venice, and both Swiss and Miami Basel in order to survey the newest and most-talked-about artists.
