    Exploring the Dirty South with VMFA's Valerie Cassel Oliver

    Valerie Cassel Oliver discusses her latest trailblazing exhibition at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, “The Dirty South: Contemporary Art, Material Culture, and the Sonic Impulse.” Illustrating, through the frame of Southern hip-hop, how early 20th-century Black visual and sound aesthetics helped shape contemporary Southern art, music, and a material culture of customized cars and personal adornment, Cassel Oliver’s show is an exemplary expression of her curatorial vision.
    Cassel Oliver is the Sydney and Francis Lewis Family Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. Prior to this position, she spent sixteen years at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, Texas, where she was senior curator.

    New Talent with Antwaun Sargent

    New Talent with Antwaun Sargent

    Art writer, curator, fashion figure and man about town, Antwaun Sargent discusses the May/June 2021 issue of Art in America which focuses on New Talent. In the 1950s and 60s, Art in America ran a series of regular features and issues that sought to identify up-and-coming artists whose work would be lasting and meaningful for the future. Instead of approaching the idea of New Talent as a singular benchmark, Sargent talks about how he took the approach of assembling a group of artists and writers who could better show the multiplicity of what New Talent means. Sargent argues against the idea of equating the idea of New Talent with youth. Instead, this issue features artists ranging from painters Deborah Roberts and Amy Sherald to photographers Tyler Mitchell and Clifford Prince King and artists working in different media like Precious Okoyomon or Allana Clarke or Qualeasha Wood. Above all, the issue brings new voices into the conversation about art. “We talk about audiences all the time,” Sargent says, “but we’re still allowing all of that to be defined by a very limited number of folks. This magazine is an opportunity to push back against some of those notions—about what a critic can be, about what an art writer can be.”

    Artsy CEO Mike Steib Thrives in Lockdown

    Artsy CEO Mike Steib Thrives in Lockdown

    Artsy CEO Mike Steib joined the platform for galleries and collectors only eight months before Covid-19 shut down the global art market. The pandemic has isolated most galleries from their collectors. Without gallery shows or the huge influx of visitors at art fairs, Artsy has worked to fill the gap with new tools for both client galleries and collectors seeking engagement. Despite the coronavirus-constrained art market, Steib believes the greatest opportunity in art lies in expanding access and participation.
