Learning how the contemporary visual art world works, one conversation at a time. How does the visual art world work? I don’t know either, so I will ask the people that work in the industry and try to learn how the contemporary visual art world functions and hopefully be able to take their insight and experiences and learn how we can make a living in the artworld.
Sculptor + Jeweler, Putte Dal (Norway)
We discuss: Government funding, artist stipends, the scale of her art, the need for feedback, artist statements, coping with rejection, our need for approval, craft vs art vs fine art, art craft, craft art, art vocabulary, and the benefits of failure.

Curator, Silja Leifsdottir, Norwegian Sculptors Society (Norway)

Highly recommended podcast
Each episode carry with it a new knowledge, a new insight into the art world as we try to navigate its complexities. I like the style of the conversation where the host inputs so much of his experiences as an artist himself with his guests of artists and curators and specialists from the art world as they reflect on their own experiences and practices and findings in their own world.
Great art podcast
