    That's Not It Sis: How Can We Productively Hate on Art?

    Ready for an Artpop RANT?! In this episode we’re ranting about some of the art that we actually don’t like so much. From Gilmore Girls and Kiki Smith to Italian Futurism and their “original” movement. We’re asking questions like: why aren’t we allowed to say we don’t like a work of art? What are the benefits of art historical critique? And how could art education benefit from embracing hating on some art?

Accessible, Hilarious, and Genuine

APT is such a good resource for learning about art and pop culture. All discussions are super accessible and get rid of confusing academic language everything that stopped you from liking that art history course in college. These ladies are so genuine and make me cackle with laughter. APT is a must-listen!!

A Voice to Art Enthusiasts and Art Apathys

ArtPop Talk is such a breath of fresh air when it comes to podcasting. Gianna and Bianca discuss different art and pop culture in a very informative and knowledgable way. A clearly well researched podcast, filled with facts and well reasoned opinions on a myriad of contemporary and non-contemporary art history topics. They also do an amazing job relating to the audience in a fun and engaging way. This podcast is for people who know Kiki Smith to the people who think the Mona Lisa is the best art piece out there.
