Amy Beecher is a visual artist working in installation, digital imaging, sound, and text. In 2013 she created a podcast, The Amy Beecher Show, as an excuse to invite people to her 160 square foot Brooklyn apartment. She's since moved, and The Amy Beecher Show has moved with her. Like an easily amazed and distracted therapist, Beecher opens doors to the inner workings of her subject's artistic lives, inviting guests to reflect on their work, their process, and, mostly, everything else.

    EPISODE 43: Drawing on the Walls with Jaqueline Cedar

    If I could listen to a podcast and sing The Wheels On the Bus at the same time, I would listen to this week’s re-release of my conversation with Jackie Cedar, painter and founder of Good Work Gallery. I recorded it with her during the pandemic, before Ben…the cognitive equivalent of a scene you vaguely remember from a movie you once saw….

    EPISODE 24: Banjo Camp with Cassandra Jenkins Rerelease

    EPISODE 24: Banjo Camp with Cassandra Jenkins Rerelease

    Happy holiday week. My gift to you: three things you can do to feel less “meh” about your holiday break.

    1)    Donate to the Institute of American Indian Arts, a college and research center in Santa Fe devoted to supporting indigenous American arts. One of my former students goes there.

    2)    Attend the last performance of my exhibition at Pari Passu view live stream or in-person.

    3)    Listen to this re-release. It’s with Cassandra Jenkins! She’s on tour right now, killing it. Somebody at a party once told me this was their favorite episode. Or was it that it was the only one they listened to? Not sure. Go for it.

    EPISODE 23: Digging with Tracy Molis

    EPISODE 23: Digging with Tracy Molis

    I think it was early 2019 that I went to see Tracy Molis’ last show at Kai Matsumiya. There were two types of paintings on view: paintings of artifacts inspired by an archaeological drawing class she was teaching at Columbia, and then paintings of stills from a Rage Against The Machine music video… a different type of artifact. In some ways, this re-released podcast in honor of her next show at the gallery feels like a dusty dug up artifact, a remnant from the “before times.” Enjoy this time capsule! It’s one of our most downloaded episodes.
