Rank #1: No. 25: Making It in the Art World If You’re Not a Rich Kid

Podcast cover
Read more
This week, we’re rebroadcasting a favorite episode from earlier this year.

As the New York Times recently reported, twenty-somethings pursuing a career in art and design are the most likely to receive financial assistance from parents; they also receive the largest sums.

On this episode, we’re joined by Sandra Jackson-Dumont, chair of education at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Naiomy Guerrero, creator of GalleryGirl.nyc, to discuss the role money plays in art world careers.

How does the plethora of unpaid internships and low-paying jobs limit inclusivity? And what steps can we take to change the system?

Nearly three months into 2018, several major milestones of the art market calendar have already come and gone—including the London auctions and the release of the The Art Market | 2018 report earlier this month. Meanwhile, in China, Art Basel in Hong Kong kicked off this week. On this episode, our editors sit down to talk about what early art market signals this year are telling us about the health of the trade and what it could all mean for the future of the industry.

Rank #3: No. 44: Who’s Afraid of Contemporary Art?

Podcast cover
Read more
On this episode, curators Jessica Cerasi and Kyung An walk us through the ABCs of contemporary art. Each chapter of their new book, Who’s Afraid of Contemporary Art?, is devoted to a different question about this thorny (and often alienating) segment of the art world.

When did contemporary art start—and when will it end? Why was the art world split over Jay-Z’s show at Pace Gallery? And why are exhibition press releases so hard to understand?

Rank #4: No. 10: Does Disliking an Artist Mean You Can’t Like Their Work?

Podcast cover
Read more
Rikers Island, New York’s notorious jail, houses thousands of men and women awaiting trial or convicted of short sentences. We discuss the neurological underpinnings of art therapy in this environment, the difficulties that therapists experience teaching in jails, and how programs such as this can provide much-needed healing, as well as concrete life skills, for inmates both while in the jail and in the outside world upon their release.

Next, we look at German painter Georg Baselitz and ask: Should his misogyny affect our appreciation of his work? In 2013, the artist remarked that “women don’t paint very well,” setting off a firestorm of critique but, for many at least, not diminishing the artist’s place in the art-historical canon. So how do we square an artist’s biography and beliefs with their work? Can the two be separated?

Podcast cover

This week, we take you through the history of the frames market—from the 15th century, when a frame could be more valuable than the painting itself, to the 20th century, when their popularity and price tags dwindled with the rise of modern art.

Rank #6: No. 36: When Basquiat Is More Expensive Than Warhol

Podcast cover
Read more
Last Thursday, a 1982 painting by Jean-Michel Basquiat sold for a formidable $110.4 million at Sotheby’s.

It set a record for the New York artist, who both joined the exclusive “$100 million-plus club” and displaced Andy Warhol as the most expensive American artist at auction in one fell swoop.

This week, we break down the sale—both what it means for Basquiat’s market going forward and whether it changes his place in the art-historical canon.

Rank #10: No. 37: Why Good Artists Make “Bad” Paintings

Podcast cover
Read more
The genre of “bad painting” is a slippery one. On this podcast, we discuss the label, which has been applied to a wide-ranging group of artists throughout the 20th and 21st centuries.

What they share, wrote curator Eva Badura-Triska in an essay for the 2008 show “Bad Painting: Good Art” at the Museum of Modern Art in Vienna, is a refusal “to submit to artistic canons.” So what exactly does that mean?

Though artists from Francis Picabia to Rene Magritte are among early practitioners of “bad painting,” can the label continue to exist today, when there are no singular artistic canons to reject?

This week we have something a little special for you: a deep dive into Artsy’s Art Genome Project, the system that is used to classify the artworks on Artsy. We discuss some of the exciting and surprising trends in contemporary art that the Genome Project has unearthed, before expanding on our previous discussion centered around the pitfalls of labeling artists—and explore the underappreciated history of the pigments used to create art through the ages.

This week, we discuss the broader ideological implications of the fight against the NEA and how the agency actually works with a meager budget to bring art across America—while also helping organizations raise the private dollars some think make the NEA superfluous.

Later, we discuss the role arts funding plays in the broader economy and why the NEA could be more important to the art market than the Dow Jones.
