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

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

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