Shockoe Artspeak is a podcast about art, design and how creative work impacts the world in which we live. With a belief that creative practice is a generative force, co-hosts and professors Ryan Lauterio and Garreth Blackwell, PhD, wade deeply into art and design through cringe-worthy experiences, intellectual banter, debunked lies, stretched metaphors and totally random non sequiturs. These long-form conversations and interviews with artists show how important it is for us to know and be known by other artists, while also taking the time to unpack large questions and topics in art, design and professional practice. Shockoe Artspeak is a production of Shockoe Artspace, a non-profit contemporary art gallery in Richmond, Virginia.

    118. Whose Practices Are These?

    117. What’s in a Visit?

    During art school, having someone come into your studio and talk about your work seems like a normal thing: your friends come in, your studiomates come in, and your professors come in. But after graduation, when the studio is in your home, or in your backyard, those visits are fewer and farther between. Outside of ...

Engaging

I just found this podcast. The conversation between these two artists is insightful, engaging and fresh. I am very familiar with a variety of art podcasts but this one is thought provoking and is of today’s world. Always interesting, has helped immensely in my art practice.

Thoughtful and important

Each episode of this podcast is a thoughtful and important conversation about design, art, and creativity laced with humility and encouragement (which is much needed but incredibly rare in the art world). Ryan and Garreth wrestle with questions and share insights from their experiences as artists and instructors. It’s quite a pleasure to listen in on their intriguing conversations each week. This podcast is a breath of fresh air and inspiration!
