    A Brave New Biennial? Or Just Another One?

Unlike shows past, the 2019 Biennial is focused on bringing emerging and underrepresented artists to gallery floor..... we ask: what does that meeeeeeeeeean tho?

Refreshing Takes on the Art/Museum World

Needed a podcast like this. Really illuminates the system behind the facade of art.

Awesome podcast

High quality. Fun. Thoughtful. Connected to the edge of radical/progressive movements in contemporary art. I can see this podcast blowing up. Hosts are naturals. Season finale, I’m excited for you!!

MORE PODCASTING LIKE THIS IN OUR FIELD PLEASE

You can tell from just the first episode that a ton of thought and work has gone into this podcast. The hosts have a great repor and do such a great job of laying out complicated subjects and breaking down assumptions and euphamisms around their subject. This is how our field should be using podcasting! Highly reccomend everyone in the museum/art/library/cultural sector give it a listen. For white museum professionals, it's critical to listen and absorb this wisdom if we are serious about deconstructing our hold on this field.
