    All About My Selfie (Rebroadcast)

    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. In this episode, Eric and Ando discuss two specific spaces. The Museum of Ice Cream in New York, and the Color Factory in San Francisco.

    Anish Kapoor Vs. The NRA

    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.

    “52 & They Art All Against You”

    “52 & They Art All Against You”

    Back with a vengeance is By The Way with episode #13 “52 & They Art All Against You”.  On this episode listen to Eric Wall and Ando discuss what may become the largest US public art project ever. The political Super Pac For Freedoms launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kick Starter to fund 52 billboards by major contemporary artists as a “get out to vote” initiative ahead of the 2018 mid-term elections. Listen in on their conversation as I think it might surprise the you where Eric and Ando stand regarding the project.

    By The Way Mini-episode - Returned, Removed, and Yippee Ki Yay M**********r

    By The Way Mini-episode - Returned, Removed, and Yippee Ki Yay M**********r

    We follow up on a few stories in this By The Way Mini-episode titled Returned, Removed, and Yippee Ki Yay M**********r.  
     The first topic is a follow up from BTW #1 - Thievery, when Ando and I discussed the smuggling of Iraqi artifacts by the American craft store giant Hobby Lobby.   
    “Art and China After 1989: Theater of the World.” is a controversial exhibition we spoke about in BTW #4 - Theater of the Protest. It is now traveling to Spain with a few new modifications to the exhibition.  
    As always Jeff Koons has to peek his nose into the podcast even-though we covered the lawsuit filed against him in BTW #12 “Something is rotten in the state of Denmark”. He his now being sued by the Hollywood producer that gave us the movie Die Hard.

    “Something is rotten in the state of Denmark”

    “Something is rotten in the state of Denmark”

    By The Way: A Contemporary Art News Podcast is back with episode #12 “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.
