All About My Selfie (Rebroadcast)
It finally has come to Eric and Ando talking about Instagram. Take about 5 minutes to watch the video clip in the links below to get a better understanding of what we are discussing today.
Audiences are more comfortable viewing and buying art via their phones than ever before. Why would there not be curators creating exhibitions with that interaction in mind? A trend of “MADE-FOR-INSTAGRAM” exhibitions are trying to change the way we engage with our traditional institutions.
Anish Kapoor Vs. The NRA
Recently, the artist Anish Kapoor filed a lawsuit against the NRA over the use of one of his most famous work in a recruitment campaign. For our longtime listeners, I think you might find it Eric and Ando’s opinions on the story surprising. And as always, send us your opinion to the stories that we cover here at By The Way.

“Something is rotten in the state of Denmark”
Join Eric Wall and Ando again as they discuss the basis' of the lawsuit that accuses Jeff Koons and Gagosian Gallery of running a "Ponzi-like scheme". We talk a little about how editions are works are produced, the difference between an art investor and an art collector, is Jeff Koons an artist or manufacture of art, and he is using his current collector's money as interest-free loans. Hope you enjoy the bashing of Jeff Koons in this episode.
