Bringing together voices from across the art world.

    Jerry Gogosian's AM Art Radio Ep 12: Aindrea Emelife

    Jerry Gogosian's AM Art Radio Ep 12: Aindrea Emelife

    In this episode, I had the privilege of speaking with Aindrea Emelife, an art critic, independent curator, gallerist, and BBC television presenter from London. Aindrea is an incredibly inspiring and uplifting person to speak with as she has already accomplished so much in such a short timespan. She's young...but I won't say how young! Her most recent article in The Independent ‘There is a lot of hard work to be done’: How the art world can step up for Black Lives Matter is an insightful vision of how to make out our near future as the art world further contends with the issue of race and inequality.

    With a background in art history and specializations in the medieval periods of European art history as well as Surrealism...Plagues plus lucid dreaming? Sounds like 2020 to me.  She offered a lot of insight into how we can rethink this moment and use it for actual systemic change. 

    I hope you enjoy our conversation. Please send me a voice memo at anchor.fm and tell me what your thoughts on the episode.

    Jerry Gogosian AM Art Radio Ep. 11 : An Interview with Kenturah Davis

    Jerry Gogosian AM Art Radio Ep. 11 : An Interview with Kenturah Davis

    May 27, 2020

    Hello internet, it's Jerry Gogosian. I hope you and your family are doing well in these troubling times. It's been a while since I last released an episode of the podcast. Like many of you, life got real real and I have had to really focus on the brass and tacks for a while. However, during all of this, I’ve had the privilege of reflection. Time to finally start absorbing the reality of where we’ve come to as a species, as a culture, as a community of art lovers, as an industry… The inevitability of change is here and its time to start deciding what we want to do about it. (This is a longer conversation meant for another time.) ***But, I'm good. There will be several more podcast releases in the coming weeks so you have that to look forward to. 

    For this episode, I decided to speak with the artist Kenturah Davis about her paintings and her practice's relationship liminality, language, and how textiles manage to weave their way into the history of human communication. It was truly a pleasure and I hope you enjoy our conversation as much as I did.

    But before we get started, I wanted to announce that after much searching for a quality Zoe + Chloe, I think I’ve found him. That's right. His name is Gunner Dongieux.  I decided to record our interview to get your opinion. What do you think? Is he a good hire? Is he a Zoe or a Chloe?

    Jerry Gogosian's AM Art Radio Ep. 9 Sarah Hoover Returns

    Jerry Gogosian's AM Art Radio Ep. 9 Sarah Hoover Returns

    April 18th, 2020

    We’re deep into the quarantine and I’m going to be honest with you guys; I have NOT felt like doing the podcast, like at all. It was super fun and was  in the beginning but like many of you, this isolation is making me depressed, anxious, and lonely. So I was grateful when Sarah Hoover took the time to speak to me this week and pushed me out of my weird isolated mind to discuss our beginnings in art, how we came to love art, our relationship to New York, female AND male feminists, and how we the art world can improve itself.

    This episode gets real for me as our conversation pushed me to confront some of the unhealthy ideas surrounding art and capitalism which I’ve developed working in the art world. By the end of the conversation, Sarah had me reconsidering why I do this, how important art is, and how we can readjust our ideas as we rebuild post-pandemic. I guess this is the silver lining of all this: SELF REFLECTION and RECONSIDERING WHY WE DO ANYTHING OF THIS. I hope you enjoy the conversation. This one is an hour and half. Settle in and enjoy.

    Ladies and gentlemen, she doesn’t need an intro from me. You know her. You love her. You love her paintings. Its Chloe Wise! 

    I don’t know who needed the “therapy” more today, me or her, but I’m really glad we got to speak. I feel oddly encouraged and oddly like I can make it through one more cycle of the current groundhog’s day marathon aka “the quarrrrrrrr!!!” Its getting WERID over here. 

    Enjoy the episode. Don’t worry about the quality of the recording. It's about the conversation.

    Good news! I have figured out my recording situation and the podcast quality just went up 500%. AM art radio is improving. Thanks for your patience. Link to episode is in the bio.

    It was truly a pleasure to have my friend Sarah Hoover on the podcast. I actually “met” Sarah on the internet when I started Jerry Gogosian, but I’d known her husband, Tom Sachs from 2016 when he was in San Francisco for Space Program Europa at the Yerba Buena Center for the arts. I remember seeing Sarah at the opening back then and being thoroughly impressed by her commitment to a pair of outrageous looking  Chanel stilettos. Little did I know a few years later she’d become one of my biggest cheerleaders and someone I look up to for her advocacy work throughout the art world and beyond. She’s super outspoken and uses her place of privilege to push against issues like sexism & misogyny in the workplace, home politics, and has just written a book about her struggles with postpartum depression, It’s reassuring to know there’s a “good side” to the art world in all of this messy COVID-19 darkness. I truly believe that women such as Sarah will be pivotal in how the art world is reformed moving forward and I’m sure glad she’s got such a strong clear message. I hope you enjoy our conversation.
