'Black grief and white grievance' at New Yorks New Museum
"Now. The new museum in new york this week open grief and grievance art and morning in america and exhibition originally conceived for the museum by the hugely influential curator of queen ways or before. He died in two thousand nine hundred nineteen grief and grievance features thirty seven artists to address the theme of morning commemoration and loss in response to the racist violence experienced by african american communities the title the museum says refers to quote the intertwined phenomena of black grief and a politically orchestrated white grievance against each structures and defines contemporary american social and political life. Curatorial advisory group has worked together to realize an interpreter. Basil's vision maximiliano gio knee of the new museum. The artist glenn ligon in ways. As regular curatorial collaborator mark. Nash and owe me beckwith scenic creator of the museum of contemporary art in chicago. He's just been appointed chief curator of the guggenheim museum in new york editor in the americas. Helen stolis spoke to beckwith about the exhibition. I wondered what's it been like bringing the show to its final stages making sure that oakley's incredible vision has been realized. What was your thinking through the process to make sure you've got this kind of final end stage oak. We have a brial mind. There were always so many things that he was thinking about and working on and he can have an idea a decade ago that manifests itself into a show much much later and so his ability to kind of hold and juggle things Intellectually and mentally that then get realized later was uncanny honestly the more that i read essays of his from about ten years ago i realized the core of some of this thinking was already there especially the core of ideas in grief ingredient. So all that is to say that this actually is unlikely to be. Oh quiz show believe it or not. They'll be more coming more things to watch and see. The man's ambitions were amazing and so lars they will extend extend far past life But in terms of grief and grievance started as a lecture series for harvard and oh a curator. He thinks through art a curious interesting. That i'm still speaking about him in present tense and so he thinks through ours and he started then to take. These ideas That he'd been mulling over these ideas around. What really are the kind of core conditions of american race relations. Where did they begin. What catalyzed them and what are the ramifications of that core This sense of black loss and a sense of white grievance let really in his mind got catalyzed around the civil war. What are those ramifications for the american polity right now our process as curatorial advisors which is what we've been calling ourselves has really been about trying to round out oh quiz vision where it was necessary. Okay already had a rather. Set schematic for the show. He had core objects that he was interested. In working with a painting of awesome blogs painting by daniel johnson another awesome. Blah's painting by jack whitten and a painting regime michel basquiat. He was really interested in these three objects as the ways to anchor away of of both thinking through reactions to Black and justice but also aesthetic forms that moved between abstraction and figuration between forms that are legible and gestures that deal. Mostly i think with the monochromatic. So these being the kind of catalyzing ideas for the show. were great signposts for us so then began to work with those themes and ideas for the rest of the checklist.

"The paint off the elephant and just had the elephant in the room but the the owners of the elephants said that he was used on movie and he was really used to me. Competent wasn't cruella toll. But when you when you see the elephant in this context of the exhibition it just. I don't know it didn't doesn't set well with me. But then knowing that it had agreed strange ahead of background and being exposed and used to of felons and make-up's in large crowds of people kind of almost as if it was justifiable in some way and because it was so impactful as using the animal that spread this message whether or not good. It does in terms of like people taking action against us. 'cause i don't know but it's so funny when someone was on there so used to it because of done this movie in this movie and don't know as funny why i don't hide haiti's immediately i don't know the fact that you said When he was actually used to being performed reminding me like child performers when their parents to send them to go to all the auditions and stuff like that so just because they're conditioned to do it doesn't mean they like it and it's something that i really think really shows like the diversity of ways animals can be used in our like. I think that piece the elephant in the room isn't necessarily about the elephant but rather to conversation he's having around i think like also play and then of course you're seeing the poverty line so is something that really saying. Is that the most beneficial use of an animal. Do you think he could have done that with a robotic elephant instead of done it with like a giant lake even tax dairy or meat elephant or something could have that same effect if is not directly involving an animal but would have it chigney shock with shock factor shock value. Well yeah well. That's it. Because i i don't think it weeds. I think the idea that this elephant was moving out and but camouflaged as really hits home. The point perhaps bashar them more attacks thermos are taxidermy elephant. But then again we wouldn't. We won't know because that's never happened. And that piece was like that for the fourteen days of its life cycle. And then it's just you know immortalized and photographs in an acc. And things like that. So i don't know it's really made me rack my brains on really question. Have i feel about animals and arts and it's really made me look at things differently so so after thank you for. That is a really interesting topic. That i don't think gets enough for your team. Really i mean high of you find of researching defeated. There's a wealth of material on. Do you feel as you beg and regulations and also people are having these conversations. I think within the last couple of years people are starting to have conversations. But in terms evacuations in institutional policies. They're still aground. Works because something that within the last twenty years animals have been placed more than a museum like current context. So it's something that we're really trying to handle as it comes up but then the fact that if you tell artists now it's going to make them want to do it even more so we're as a whole trying to fill in. What ways can we just handle it as a whole and how me essentially respond to animals center are and where should they be shown how to be treated and the fact that such a wide topic. It's going to need a lot more attention. Yeah absolutely well keeping you're doing your phd on it so there's plenty of time to time you're answering your final your final year of Phd dissertation. i'm actually in my second year of three. So i'm i'm almost almost i can see the light. Amazing that's great. I'll eat thank you so so much. Is there anything that you feel before we can have sane off. Is there anything that you feel that you haven't mentioned yet. That's supporting that. You really want people to listeners to thank to bow or consider when the when you look at these things. Yeah i'm i think jewish right now just laid about the gap the groundwork for the conceptual ideas that could actually help. Advance animal ethics within contemporary art. But i really think people need to have more conversations so do more research and really look into the artworks. We discussed today. because. I think that they're so interesting. And the more people talk about it more we can really uncover what is the essentially. The heart of the issue is. How do we treat the animals. Yeah i guess thank you for having me. It's in lovely. Oh my goodness thank you. So much i feel like you have completely like wait and my eyes to a whole set. Kinda like underwater. Would you in the had really no idea about the more of lieutenants with so many people on and things and animals have been used and it's a really really interesting topic an an every saints. And i do second you said. Please go away. And here's the shown what special published below and look at these images look at these artists a lead this linked to this artsy article which is interesting and essentially i was. I started reading and within about forty minutes of reading. I wasn't even halfway through essentially whenever they were talking about something. I find myself like going off in like ending up doing some sort of lake animals and our wormhole number like on each. Finish this article and go back to it interesting and chasing meats and Yet alley thank you so so much an before you go so. There's one final question that i like to ask everybody or trying to remember to ask everybody on the podcast and you can ticket as wade or as narrow as as to you but my question is why is art. Important are important. I think for me. Art has always really been about examining the human condition. And what does it mean to understand our human experience. And i think our gives us a new london into uncovering what it's really trying to focus on. Which is the the life the feelings that intense like profound. Like i guess like curiosity and complexities of life and i think that are to me. This means exploration. And it's something that i hopefully can continued to look into but it's yeah it's really all about i. Guess human condition for me. I mean i. I love asking people this question. I just get such a varied response every time but amazing really beautifully. Put ali before you go. Where can people find you and perhaps you rating and what you're up to. Where can work in. Everyone get in touch my instagram. At allie carbone and my website is alyce a cargo Us cargo dot site. I'm still working on it. But i guess i keep in touch because i love the yard. You guys have to say about it. Yeah absolutely you're knock test as well. Yeah i'm painter by trade a i am. I always use of course ethical products. And you know Paintbrushes without the use of furniture and stuff like that keeps values. Yeah so that they amazing. Thank you so so much for coming on. It's been an absolute pleasure to talk to you and thank you once again. I kind of opening my eyes. And i hope listeners home. You've you've learned a low. I know. I've learned absolute louis but it's been it's been a pleasure to talk to you. Thank you so much. Best of luck with peach. Thank you are. Thank you so much i.

"Naturally or otherwise. So it's i don't know it's so interesting but for me i would say once they've died then surely that's just use a using them in a different in a different way but then again it s the ethics of i don't know they're dead or is that just very ignorant of me. I think the fact is that animals can't really express their views. It's like if some like once like a human rights and writings in like i want to be launched into iraq it afterwards. I want to donate my body to science afterwards. Humans about ability to express it where animals are kind of at the mercy of i guess humans once they die i guess. Is it really fair. When you're thinking about how we treat the dead versus how he treated like human life. I think that's on a similar plan. Ground but i feel like an art. It's been many examples of like even deeming hearses own work. Read also equates human with the for the love of god crystallized skull and also animal deaths. I feel like he's less. I don't wanna say sinister in the sense that he's using animal life but he's also i think making an equal by using human life although it gets ethical again if the use of a human child skull some of his other pieces so it's just showing overall how using actual living things in art really needs to be handled a lot more. I think Delicately but also For essentially the future of art art practice I think there's a piece that we are eventually going to hopefully hallam. Yeah not ready to that gap so that we can adjust. See that. I didn't really know what to do when i read about this piece. When you send it to me. It was one of the few times the an artwork became like get off of walk around and be like. I don't i don't actually know how that sets with me so i'm just telling the artist on or just who. The artist is the peace wars. Can you set scene friis. Oh yeah sure so. The peace was called halama. It's basically a work by marco. Sti i believe. I don't know how to pronounce his last name. I'm the same. I think we'll try retry. So basically he plays the fifteen goldfish and fifteen plunders in. Fill them of water. Blenders plugged in and posed to the viewers To possibly end the fishes life with a passion of biden so the audience had the power basically to essentially kill fish during the exhibition. And i believe during exhibition toothfish were killed by participants. So not only were two lives at a toothfish consciously ended but it was also the preservation of them in exhibition in these blunders. That was an issue because there's no stimulus freedoms restricted for these fishes existence. So it's really helping us. This examined how. I don't want to say how drastic art can cut. But how extreme and how powerful and how i think really harming it is to animals in the utilized within art practice because like you said to animals where were liquid is on the cover of the people that entered the galaxy not the artists themselves. You know like you could essentially plea god's on cow these animals if he wanted to and i just feel the fact that you knew exactly. I read this article that was like you know. The blenders were visibly plugged on right away. He knew was at the game where do could praise on on liquid is the the animal or you could be a spectator and somebody or you could be the person. That's of mortally stunned back and says this is wrong message role on its i mean. How did you come across. Piece in ho ho. Do you hide as ethically for you set. What kind of questions is the piece. Boys huge huge. Obviously but. yeah. I guess they originally came across was piece when i was doing research about animal. Ethics contemporary art. Because there's pieces. I believe shutdown within like fifteen days or two weeks of showing it. And there's an uproar about it. Although like when i first saw the piece i was thinking yes. He can press the blender. But it's interactive. Why don't you unplug it as well or why. Don't you do something about like the something to make it overall better for them. Rather than just the two people. I would love to interview them and ask them why they actually did it and they're no in jail for doing something so ready. Oh i know those are two serial killer socially but then i like the real issue is whether the intent to employ harm is justifiable I think that the fact that every see killed two fish. Do you think that to fish should also have the opportunity to have an equally enjoyable life or the fact that None of the animals moral rights for intent or like were inherently respected and. So it's not fair to them to have that existence but i'm of the fact that artists controversial and it's making us hobbies conversations at the speech that exist that like i feel like i would be missing so much from the art world feel like wouldn't have challenged us wouldn't have pushed us this. I even examined. What of animals should have an art world but also how do we value life as a whole so. I'm torn because. I love this piece because stirs controversy but then on the other hand i'm like this is so morally wrong. Why my drawn to this. Well say there's this very. I think he's just morbid fascination that people genuinely whole though and it's been that way through arts you know throughout the history of art there's always these of Bets on of you know remainders that you are mortal unto of live your life and i think this is essentially what he's trying to supply with here on how quickly it can be taken from you on completely out of your control but i i just think it's i don't know it's it's like you said it's an incredible piece butts. Why could you not have the power to it and then just like recorded but you know and just say to people. Oh it's they are plugged. The didn't have to actually be plugged in his a lot of ways. But again it comes back to that sort of you know one for the greater goods unless case to it sparked a huge conversation an article and ali and the show was below for anyone. That's listening that wants to read this and as an interview with the artist and it's published on this paper and then continued to add responses to people who've written in even years after this article has been published. So it's just screens and screens and streets and it really divides people fifty fifty. But there's a really interesting quotes anne. So the journey essentially asks the artist. As ethical to use live animals arch on the artist is quoted as saying i believe that sometimes necessary to sacrifice one means for the sake of another in this case it was the life officials that would at stake to be honest people's harsh reactions. Surprise me as we in my opinion are surrounded by programs. That are so much more serious than what we encounter with every evening watching the news at what. He's me that we are passive and such fronts of these news and that my art piece treated such a start in states. People find that my use of goldfish and my art piece is unethical. I would invite them to have a closer look themselves on.

"Art history. Podcast podcast which celebrates all things arch stoorikhel every single day. Welcome back and today it is episode eighteen and this one is a less. Oh bit different today. This week i sat down with art historian. An artists alley tar really thought provoking discussion. All around the use of animals and contemporary arts and the moral questions that can provoke from artists living impact pains and footing sharks and time to fish and lenders and painted elephants. Eileen i talk about a lot of clarity orange using both live and dead an art and the questions the ethics and morality of using animals that can arise. We've thought of it ever okay to count animal for the sake of art and why these works. Allu- shocking are really really important. That making us not only reflect on our values but think about how we take action against certain things but not others so elianora went for the three artists and particularly who have used animals. Very definitely the issue of using art. Very very differently and mrs moore chem damien hirst of course on an arches code marco every no word of warning we start to speak about marco's boat the twenty five minute mark and has pieces quite shocking so it kinda upset some people but it's just so just as a warning if you will but i want to thank kelly. This is a really interesting topic. And something that i really have never considered before and particularly some someone damian hirst who we own also well for using animals in art. How he acquires has animals is very controversial and sparked of questions and debate. And i would really love to know when she blessed into this where you stand on using animals and arc anyway. It's a really talk. It's very thought provoking and yeah. I think it's very evident that throat the who podcast myself from stoves of wrestling things. I had read and really trying to piece together. Have i feel i've to seek answers for things. That really aren't very clear. But i really hope you enjoy it. This is such an interesting charts and another example of just varied amazing the history of artists and the questions that can arise sit back and relax alley and discuss the complex issues of animals in contemporary art. I think arsene foremost my question for this is when you responded to at my odds and rage proposal i was like this is so interesting because as as an art historian haven't really thought about this topic and greet which is really a feeling on my part and from the research that i've done this podcast founder. So interesting and it's taught me a little about particular artworks and made me look at particular things. And a very very way. From what i have so i think really my first of long winded way into my first question. As what got you interested in this topic. I guess for me i'm i am. I've been vegan for about ten years. Now and i always had an interest in how animals come into our and they're essentially Away that art historians tend to like approach animals so in our normalized through so many current ethical debates about animals zoos animals in research but not so many conversations are held with animal ethics within our contemporary art practice. So i started looking at my own university's policies. At the time. I realized there was just like two sentences on the subject matter. But i felt like this was such a prevalent issue on Examined artists like damien. Hirst her like mira cam. You realize there's such a diverse the way that we can handle animals within contemporary art so it just essentially ignited this entire like field of study to see what's out there which apparently not much yet. No it's so interesting that you say that because it's really even this like you said this of ethical question over kanye us on our something that i've never even thought i mean you. You're an artist yourself. Did you train. You went to school of art. Was that was fine art degree or was that an art history degree. What was the thinking was to use something practically. I guess a little bit about my background is i did. My undergrad in art studied at queen's university in canada and then my master's curatorial research contemporary art with glasgow school of art. And now. I'm doing my doctorate with the university of southern queensland in australia and doctorate of creative art so it's a fine art oriented a research and although it's on a different subject matter together so let's get into this thing so the start work that you sent me was an artist code. Murray kempton on can you just for the listeners. Home pages of scrape. What concept of this piece as. yeah so. i'm for those of you. Who don't know kin. She's a performance artist by trade and her work called the pig. Therefore i am is a performance piece where she spent. I believe a couple of days immersed in a pig farm and she was completely nude and she lived like pigs and just essentially felt that connectedness with the animals and when she was there she just essentially let down her guard at embrace animals and overall this piece is something very interesting in terms of contemporary art. Because she's respecting the animals upon me than also engaging with them i think at a like minded level. She was quoted as saying that when she looked into the eyes of the pigs. You dislike felt that connection with them. And i think that's something very interesting or was more than art pieces more of an interactive engaging with the animals yet. It's it's a really really interesting concept so The as well as obviously being an art student or an artist rather she was made school for less over as well on that she the used to dissect pigs and it was during that team that she realized that anatomically humans. Pegs are very very similar. And it's a really really interesting concept when you see images of this installation because there's times for me personally where i had to kind of really look for her with an these pins on just kind of really got me thinking about how similar on animals and humans are. We're both were were living breathing. Settings book by harsh often. Sarachan herself into these pains. Emit me think. Is that a form of.

About whether it's a risk to bring these works wash now amid the pandemic and what it tells us about the market for your masters in general scott before we talk about the particular. Lots came sotheby's today. I wanted to ask you about the old master market in general and obviously the fact that he are in the middle of a pandemic and we're in an economic crisis. Does it make sense to bring these kind of lots to watch it this time. Well this is how the b.'s. new york gets the big master cell. Everyone wants to consigned to this sale. This is the moment The markets dealers on people. I speak to in that world. Say new york is where everyone wants to sell their overly only one sale year evening sale and that was the time to sell uncles. The pandemic been going on for nearly a year now in terms of restrictions on auctions sotheby's created incredibly slick format for this hybrid livestream sale It seems to be working. Well the thing about losses of courses. This isn't contemporary art. It's an unfashionable collecting field and it was always going to be a real test for that collecting field in the current environment. That's the interesting thing is because of course the leonardo so and of course the leonardo salvator mundi was very very unusual. So we have to caveat everything with that sure but christie's when they sold that put that into the contemporary sale. Luckily and i wondered how you feel about whether old master lots might do better in more mixed fields versus the traditional roadmaster sale. And who dictates that but with the salvator mundi. My understanding was that it was just a brainwave by the genius auction air Loic gouzer Thinking well let's put it in a contemporary sale. It's such a strange object If it's an old master sale than people just pick it to bits and criticize it in a contemporary sale be would just be looking at the image. And of course christie's marketing machine went into absolute overdrive and they marked it absolutely brilliantly Using the typeface of the dan brown novel to promote it You know they pulled out every stop and it worked sensationally. Well whether you the extent to which you can do again is is really questionable. Because that is as you point out in uttar outlaw. They self-talk mundi in in every respect. But what was interesting about. The marketing of this sale at celebici's is once again. The sophistication of the marketing with every lot. The work was shown online hanging on a white wool in a contemporary style. Interior where you'd expect a damien hirst to hang on then there would be to further reassure the contemporary minded by will the asian bah. There was a very attractive. Cooley dressed asian girl standing next to the painting in a contemporary interior. I that all walking the hilarious thing about this marketing ploys that in both cases they weren't actually looking at the picture they were just standing there. It was clearly if he's of marketing to reassure contemporary art buys but it was very smart and slick and clever and they and they're pulling out the stuff that incredibly inventive about it

It's definitely a favorite especially among foreigners in china. I did my research and this phrase apparently dates back a story from the song dynasty. That's around a thousand ad. The story goes that an artist was painting a tiger when his friend came and asked him to paint horse instead of starting a new picture. The artist simply drew the body of a horse onto the tigers head that he had already painted. The outcome was met. Mama who the other thing i wanted to clarify. Was the proper translation of the dubbing. How the shanghai breakfast food. Un said he would miss the most if he left china the best translation for this should actually be flat.

"contemporary art" Discussed on The GaryVee Audio Experience
"Chaos everybody was into it and that guy and and obviously some women as well. But that guy predominantly is now forty five to fifty and has children that are now eight and nine and just like in the toy industry and other businesses. You see reboots every thirty years you're seeing that sports that's one to gambling the explosion of gambling in the last decade what gamblers are realizing instead of daily fantasy and just betting on games that they're able to make more money being right about Jason Tatum or tyler hero or Jaanus than even betting on those teams or those variables. So that's been a huge factor and then three you've got the sneaker flipper kids. For people that are listening if you've got kids that have been doing this over the last ten years, but the flipping of premium sneakers buying and selling. So the entrepreneurial element there that's happening and then for Youtube, there's the explosion of people opening up packs on the Internet and that being entertainment this what's called pack breaking? So those are four major. Things converging at the same time that has really led to and then social media overlay like people sharing their Zion poll or they're great Kobe collection. You. Have a lot of ingredients stanford why this is happening now what is hot right now? Basketball. Basketball's on comfortably hot both. And modern I think a lot of people will lose money and I'm going to say again clearly, people will lose money on modern because they're going to bet on a young player. Let's use tyler hero because it's relevant who looks all the part but so so did derrick rose I mean derrick rose looked more the part and injuries are variable and if you spent one hundred thousand dollars investing derrick rose years ago, it would looked good but you would have got caught. You would have got caught on Bo Jackson and grant hill and others. But young basketball modern basketball's very hot. Vintage basketball has completely exploded Dr J. Rookie cards in a eight out of ten grade as get more into the world you know that there's companies now that you send it to and they great it PSA BGS. The companies that great cards a doctor J.. Eight was eight hundred dollars a year ago, and now is an eight thousand dollar card. That's ten times. Explosion are these new stocks I mean would you rather invest in cards or stocks? I would rather invest in cards but I need everybody to hear this why I'd like to diversify from the stocks that I own. When you're dealing times like this uncertainty potential recession after the Kobe thing. Non Stock Market Assets, alternative assets tend to go down, but not as much upside three it makes me happy so I would rather own. A Wilk Chamberlain two, hundred, thousand dollar piece of art than an actual piece of art like I. Don't want that. I don't want a Jackson pollock I want the greatest sports cards because of my interest because growing up watching you every single day that was my life. And because of the rarity I, think that the top five percent of sports cards the most rare stuff. is about to go through its contemporary art phase that we saw in the late sixties, seventies and eighties with the before mentioned Warhol and pollock. So I just think Michael Jordan rookies in a perfect ten there's only three hundred thirteen of them Dan. They were twenty, five, thirty, thousand about eighteen months ago there hovering around one hundred, thousand it is my professional investor businessman believe that that's a half a million dollar card in ten years. That's a good return Michael Jordan 's nape when you invest in real estate neighborhoods, cove it. There's Nothing. That can happen at this point with Michael, Jordan outside of. I don't WanNa go there. But like outside of an Oj Simpson like like you're talking about the rarest of rare thing that can do anything to diminish his demand and the supply is non-existent and the demand overall for this art is exploding and I think you're gonna see those things play out which your most valuable card. High. Bought a PSA nine Jackie. Robinson. Nine hundred and forty eight leaf rookie card with another friend we split it how much We we spent hundreds and hundreds of thousands of dollars each and I believe the card now based on what's happened in the market. Last two years could be pushing over a million dollars value because there's only nine of them and I think when you think about what Jackie Robinson represents and we're America is life cycle. It's always been an underpriced card compared to honus Wagner and Babe Ruth and ty COBB and I think we're starting to feel the demand really explode for it but I have a bunch of cards at home that are still in the packs and it's from the nineties you worthless and I do. Because because knowing your career and being such an mirer and this is for everyone who's listening, this was what was happening in the eighties and nineties there was gold rush and everyone said by these things, store them because what was happening the things from the fifties and sixties the mantles the earns the Clemente's word. The problem was people didn't understand how much supply we tops was making millions and cards, and by the way Matt nokes and Eric. So. Eric Davis Wally Joiner, and. Mike Greenwell Ellis. burks did not become tie cobb and Mike Greenwell which then made those cards vulnerable and that's why tell a lot of kids and if your parent of a kid or a kid listening right now. Listen I'm very excited about tyler hero too and I'm super can't wait to watch you know Jason Tatum and Jalen Brown developed a Donovan Mitchell and I'm super excited. But remember this unless you're a top one, hundred icon, your cards are not going to be worth as much as you think, twenty five, Thirty Years Round Kevin Garnett, and Dunkin and Ray Allen are less expensive than some of the rookies now because everyone's projecting what John Rant and An RJ Barrett and Zion are gonNA, do versus understanding who those players were, and that's why I keep saying over and over vintage vintage vintage vintage.

[Unedited] Dario Robleto with Krista Tippett
"Ning and. Welcome back to winter. Someone someone wrote me today instead it's raining feathers. So welcome to the institute. I'm Liz Armstrong. Curator. Of Contemporary Art, and we are very pleased to be hosting the second live interview with Krista Tippett for her show and broadcast of on being. As. Many of you know Christa was here two months ago when she spoke with Hamilton and what was a fascinating and far-reaching conversation they covered everything from spiritual act of art making to the strange intimacy of museums where people can be alone together. The the this interview, and that one we're presented. In conjunction with the exhibition currently on view. In our target wing simply called sacred, which is a series of installations, the probe, the nature of the sacred within a secular multi-faith society. By, juxtaposing works of art from Multiple Times in places, the sacred exhibition invites visitors to explore historic and contemporary. Expressions of the divine, the spiritual, the essential in the beloved and to ponder the words meaning in their personal lives. I want to thank the MIA's affinity collectors, group contemporary art for their support of this program, and for helping us visits from artists such as Hamilton. Dario. And now let me just briefly introduce each of our guests. KRISTA Tippett Enduro. Christie needs little introduction on this stage. She's a peabody award winning broadcaster and New York Times bestselling author WHO's highly acclaim radio program on being fills a huge void in the public discussion of spirituality and faith. She's not afraid to. to discuss the big animating questions of human life from how do we want to live to what does it mean to be human? She and her guests explore meaning ethics and what is sacred miss the political cultural and technological turmoil that is first century life. Dario fo was houston-based artists who's known for his highly original repurposing of rare and archaic materials. Like a DJ sampling music and he just told me tonight, he was a DJ once Doria spins in shapes such unconventional materials as dinosaur fossils, meteorite remnants, hand bones, and hipbones, and pulverized vinyl from vintage records. He's been called materials poet. I think of him as a passionate alchemist who memorialize the past while finding new meaning in the tangled roots its history. He's a maker of extraordinary objects that are meditations on war, love death, spirituality, and healing. It's going to be really interesting to him talk about these objects without seeing them. But you can imagine and then you will see them So I'm really looking forward to this conversation. Please join me in welcoming Chris step and Dario. Thank you lose. It's great to be back at Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Feel like I'm an old timer now. So I welcome you. So, Dr. you grew up in San Antonio I grew up in Oklahoma. It did not snow in March where we came from. I've really been looking forward to this for several months as way I planned it. Thank you. Very much. So if I ask you a about the spiritual and religious background of your childhood, where would you start to think about what that means? San Antonio is maybe Catholic central. In America So it's It's hard not to be around that in San Antonio. My grandfather was a Baptist minister. I didn't grow up around ten so much but his is influence definitely. was there the Beckham ahead? And he was definitely a passionate passionate man. My mother. Religion in the home was not ever really an issue but as. I searched it out on my own. I'd asked my friends I could come to church. Catholic methodist I probably sample every every church. Afraid I had. And? I continually. Even at that early age was was very, very interested. So my childhood it I would say it was very self directed. maybe always within the background knowing that thing about my grandfather, there was still this mysterious thing that I didn't really understand. So, maybe it was fairly field that to the searching.

"It is tough to see art in person when virtually all in person gatherings have been canceled you're relegated to seeing work online which you have to admit isn't really the same thing so what does that mean means art galleries are hurting because sales are way down some of those galleries could even close their doors for good but a new online platform that is the brain child of LA art dealer Jeffrey died chin name you may be familiar with in the art world is offering a glimmer of hope for local galleries and for the artists whose work they exhibit our art insider and greater LA regular contributor Lindsey Preston's Abbas is editor in chief a contemporary art review Los Angeles she's here to talk about it hi Lindsay Hey Steve before we get on to this new platform I guess can you give us a broad overview of what's what's the state of LA art galleries right now are they making any sales at all you know it's honestly a bit of a mixed bag from who I've talked to obviously as you said it not being able to see the working person is making a pretty big impact and and a lot of these exhibitions are kind of on hold or had to close early and a lot of galleries have reported that you know they're having to lay people off and even facing closure there was actually just an LA times article by Caroline Maranda that came out were they surveyed thirty five galleries and twenty five percent said that they might close as a result of this but other galleries I've spoken to are doing okay so it's a bit it's a case by case I'd say I do want to know about this new platform though I mean how is it different from what galleries and some art fairs are already doing online because you know we've seen that you know this this sort of coalescing of of galleries yeah I think when you first hear about it you're like okay what's going to make this different and unique but the really cool things so this was initiated as you said by Jeffrey Deitz who has spaces here in LA and also New York and he kind of had this idea and he quickly assembled an operating committee of about fifteen or so galleries and then they got sixty LA galleries on board so this is really a home grown operation dates you know for industry that sometimes can be a bit competitive it's really inspiring to see them all come together for a joint effort the goal unlike you know art fairs like art Basel or things like that that have gone online is really to support the diversity of of the LA art scene and a range of gallery sizes from tiny you know artist run spaces all the way up to the big guys well look I mean let's talk about this bigger galleries if if everybody's in competition even the small diverse is the the larger ones I mean why is it in their interest to help out the smaller struggling spaces do you think the larger galleries are acknowledging that effort that the small galleries put in to really feed what they're doing so it's almost like it's like the farm system in baseball right like minor league teams like helping out the major league teams right yes we need a sports reference that's perfect yes the smaller galleries often are in this mode of discovering young artists giving them their first shows kind of building their career you know some of these bigger galleries like the Goshen you can't just walk in and ask for a show and if they haven't already heard of you they're not gonna show you you know so it's really key that the small galleries kind of feed into the larger ones and it's really cool that the big ones are acknowledging that the smaller galleries are much more vulnerable in this time and they need to support them right how's it gonna work I mean if you if you see something on the platform that you like can you just buy it I mean do you added to your cart and then check out I believe how it will work as a site will always point back to each gallery's website to kind of close the deal or make the sale also through the site you can then finds that galleries contact and reach out to them directly and the goal is that one is featured on the scholar platform also nearer especially ones were able to kind of go back to galleries again that what's on this platform will near exhibitions that are actually at the gallery

"Filmmaker. I think the last thing is. What is it? The article experience is what is the definition of it? Now is it five hundred people in the theater is it a hundred is it fifty is a two people on a Friday night in front of a flat screen to me. It is that's the theatrical experience to me if it's one person. I mean, I think that the experience is the definition of it has changed. It's going to have to that's the world we live. Yeah. And your movie to you you have movie stars. And it has the feeling of kind of like an event movie in some ways from the eighties of the ninety s very sort of mid budget. Hi, Jan rutta, and that we were talking about others movies have disappeared from the Cineplex. And Netflix says obviously making strides to bring a lot of those kinds of movies back. Is there any part of you that will miss the kind of like boxoffice quality around some of this stuff or just sort of the pomp and circumstance that comes with the theatrical. It's to me it's always enjoyable to watch a film in theater or other people are laughing and join in crying, but we live in a world where where the traditional studios have centered much of their energy on Brandon, entertainment and. I'm not judging. That's what they're doing. That's their business model. And I think as you just sorta pointed out they've left behind an enormous narrative entertainment world that many people want and Netflix, God bless them have stepped in. And with great care and love has are fostering Roma. It's my favorite film of the year. Yeah. I I'm going to vote for the award people may not agree. But I feel it is. And I would like to think that when they win the Academy Award. This argument of whether net flicks makes films or not will be put the bed. It's that arguments over they make films they make films that are worthy of any award. That people are giving you this. I'm you know, if Roma wins and other films win, I think in the year two is this not even argument discussion is going to be ancient history, which it should be at this point. There's other aspect of this too. So interesting to me, I feel like there's a new part of the equation with a Netflix movie where I don't know how much of the bird box kind of phenomenon valid, but is it is it relevant to you. If you're movie kind of becomes like a mean or something on the internet that is significant because I feel like one. Felt buzzsaw has a lot of things that people could pull out and could become very memorable moments. But to is that like a new barometer for success in a way, if people have creep are creating content around the story that you've told I certainly I'm aware of the marketing of a film in these days memes. And and things taken from films are part of the marketing, so it's relevant on that way. I would like to see that for Netflix sick. They they entrusted me with some of money. And and and I respect that. And I hope it does. Well for them. I'm not really that interested in it. I hope people like it. I at this point, I'm sort of making movies as much for myself as for other people, and I've sort of turned a corner a little bit for better or worse. Hopefully, I don't stray too far that sounds like a really peaceful place to be in while you know, where it came from. I dive discussed this few times before but I worked on superman lives, which was the debacle of all time. So so epic that they made a documentary about it. I've seen it as fascinating. Right. So I I worked for a year and a half on Soumailla's. And as we getting down the wire they pull the plug two weeks before. A lot of money. But I went into the office. They pull the plug and it was living. My worst nightmare for a year. Like, this was gonna happen. I got my car job down Zanu Monica. I'm sitting on the beach, and I'm just processing everything that just happened over the last year. And I'm and I suddenly realized watching the ways that I could have written the words on the sand and the waves could have just washed away. That's how relevant was. And that was a shocking concept. And then I don't know a half hour later. I'm still singing I thought it doesn't matter. I got something that is process. I this was something I did as much for myself. This was not an invalid thing that just happened. And when I finally stood up its onset, I resolved. I was in at this point doing this as much for myself as for other people in these notions are in velvet buzzsaw the end of valid buzzsaw ends with Jewish John Malkovich. Which is literally what I experienced the idea that there is an outsider artist who's who's who's creating art as a cathartic experience for childhood trauma. Art can be as much for the artist as it can be for the audience. And I think in this film, I was really interested in the relationship between commerce and art in today's world. And the relationship is a very rocky won the quality of a work can't be judged by the number of clicks, reviews or dollar paid. I'm not saying that success diminishes the work. But it didn't no way defines it some. I'm sort of speaking to two different groups are speaking of people monetize art, saying art is more than a commodity assign ever forget that. Because I think sometimes we do. And I'm also speaking artists if you can become a brand you can beat yourself become a brand. God bless you. If that's what you want. That's fine. I don't judge that at all. But I think they're I I look at creativity as sort of a knife edge, and you can blunt it if you're not careful with repetition, and these are themes that are in the film. So I'm sort of I'm throwing ideas at their amidst the satire that you've experienced. Yeah. It's so interesting. I wonder if you have heard from anyone in the art world since you've started showing the film to people and what their reaction to it is. I haven't heard yet. I feel very secure in our research and all the almonds, and I'll tell you last week. I finally watched the price of everything on HBO. I was gonna ask you if you've seen it. I saw it a week ago and everything that these titans in the industry talk about are things that are in our film. I find that. I really asked down in my notes here. I it's so. Eerie how so much of what you are hitting on, you know, essentially, mocking there are people doing in real time in this documentary. It's fascinating. And Jake's character one point says when Toni Collette is asking about money, and where where it's all going in Texas on the money question. It's on everybody's talking about it. And in my research. Everybody is talking about what they're time at the present anything. Everybody knows that something's wrong is somehow it's not like they don't know what I don't think it can be stopped when he can't be stopped the more money the more fuel. It's like trying to stop a bonfire. It's not gonna stop. But people are trying to figure out where it's going. What is it? What does it mean? Does it diminish? Does it do this? It's a very interesting time for contemporary, art, anything. Yeah. I mean, do you see some of the same struggles for yourself as a filmmaker do feel any kind of crunch, even though you're in this peaceful moment, the only the crunch. I feel is is is that I'm an industry, which is which is in a transition phase because of the traditional studios going one way, and Netflix and other people coming in Philly that that's interesting to me it the idea as as as somebody who creates. It's that like I said I'm trying to create more for myself now than for other people. I'm trying to turn my back a little bit on all the noise, and China, I feel that if you create if look night took me a long time, but a night Carl I feel like I've found my voice, whatever my voice is a night crawler. I believe it's enrollment. I believe it's an so I'm just trying to follow my voice, I'm trying to create things that that that are relevant to me. And that brings its own piece it at this point, tell me a little bit about Roman because I don't think that there is enough conversation about it. I think it was a little bit overlooked, even though Denzel was acknowledged. And he's really interesting movie. Really well made what's your sort of? How do you look back on it? Now a few years removed from it on tremendously proud of it for myself and for all the people who worked on particularly for Denzel. I mean, I mean, I discuss this when it was out, but really Roman to me is is the story of the burden of of belief. It's it's it's he's a character. Who's carried a a sort of symbolic cross for so long, and he can't hold it up anymore, and he's going to drop it into me. That is the most of all things we are all going to not meet our standards at some point. And the ultimate message Roman is about redemption. It's it's not about failure. It's about finding a way out of out of something when you can turn when you turn your back on everything you believe in and you suddenly say, oh my God. How could this have happened? Where can you go and forgiving yourself and forgiving circumstances? That is an elevating experience that I was interested in. It's I'm very proud of the film when you're writing does the theme comforters. Does the the idea this setup confide? He always comes. First father is a writer told us from a very early age never bore you cannot bore. So I honestly think the first and foremost job of any artist on some level is to engage you can put slash entertain. But you have to engage people, and I'm looking for vehicles at engaging audience, and that become sort of Christmas trees that I can hang ideas on let me ask you a it struck me as I was watching this movie, you have a real knack for name. Tmz you your character names are very creative in this film in particular, they're sort of really elevated, but we're does stuff like that. Come from. Do you spend a lot of time trying to grab something that will really while people or puts, you know, kind of knocked him off their feet. The idea comes from. I I am an enormous Charles Dickens fan and one of the things I loved about dickens was he saw he saw a name as a vehicle to tell you something about the character. So I could spend a day on a character's name, and I have spent eight is been days on a character's name. I have lists of names. I have files of names, I'm put names one name. And I'm always experimenting looking more Vanderbilt. John Don, Don, reduce your Hayes. I just these these are names that I like, I just love names yen. I find the characters are saying those names frequently in the film, you know, it's so much fun. Not to have to ring out in some way. I find that you miss. That's great Dan couple more questions one. I'm curious. What's the last movie you've seen that you're jealous of I am jealous? Of roma. Yeah. What what was it about that? He is reminded Koran reminded us that there's nothing more dramatic than human small events framed in the right way that threw me there are scenes in Roma that rival any spectacle being made on any budget level. It just I was grossed in that film as it went as anything that I've ever seen. And and these are these are these are deep undercurrents that are not evident. They seem like they shouldn't be so important. But, but when you frame them the way he's framed them, so masterfully they become so powerful. And I just think it's it's it's a reminder of of the of of the potential for drama among people away from spectacle. And I'm only jealous in the sense that I'm not jealous. I I I'm at Meyer that he picked up the mantle and said look people life. This is this is this is really dynamite stuff if you can look at it the right way. Don't forget about it. Do you have a checklist of the kinds of films that you want to be able to make future in your career? None. Do you figure out where to go it all just an idea it just suddenly ideas on these seems really relevant? I have ideas for really dumb broad comedies that that. I once in a while I threatened to do I haven't I should write an action film. I wanna do I have I it's just an idea comes to you. I like I remember watching Slumdog millionaire, and I thought man that writer 'cause I based on a book, I must have been so excited the day. They came up with the idea of the game show quiz that became a vehicle to tell a story in flashback. That's like if I come up with that idea. I just wouldn't. That's just too cool. An idea ideas are have the shapes to them, and and you and if you look at them relevant to us on the you can see them other people can't see them. But but ideas, suddenly just leap out and go look at me, they sort of have structured to them, and and you become on my God. That's just like cool little thing. I could it's like a toy you can play with. So what are you doing next? I'm writing in original spec. Another one set in Los Angeles. At night. God help me at night s another night move in LA thought you would have learned by now. I will you. It's funny shooting at night in LA's fantastic after ten o'clock. There's no traffic. I noticed there were a couple of very good LA moments in in the new film as well. Yeah, we we shot, but I love shooting Elliott night. It's empty it's deserted. It's got this cool energy to it. It's cooler, literally, cooler, it's really interesting wild energy. Let's get dinner. I end every show by asking filmmakers. What's the last? Great thing they've seen. So maybe not that you're jealous of. But just a great thing that you saw I am an enormous fan of Ben Stiller as as gave him down tomorrow. Yeah. Guy was blown away. I I heard that he took two years on it. Then if you're listening, it was a really well spent two years, it's an incredible piece Patricia and Paul and Benito these performances are one of the writing was great to six six or seven parts on the did you see it? I did on the fifth or sixth episode when that thing happens, and you all my God, this was because it structurally, so brilliant to put that they're not in the front where it would have so differently affect. The peace, and I would have been so proud to do that piece. I thought it was remarkable. That's a great answer. I had so much fun watching Belva bus ident-. Thank you. Thank you. I appreciate. Thanks so much, Dan Gilroy. And thank you to you. For listening to this week's episode of the big picture, please tune in next week when we will have a brand new Oscar show that we've dubbed the wife of palooza, Amanda Dobbins, and I finally saw the wife, and we are ready to talk about it.

I used funny in real life as you are in you. What? Well, I doubt I doubt that everyone must be disappointed by that. The idea of humorous being a cover underlying miseries is his old as the hills, and some of the work in the south London gallery show looks at that night. You go onto news clown. For example, it's not a welcome pot that is meant to make you laugh out loud. Historically, it's really about humor.

"Say no, gay and David. Thank you for joining us not. I'm gonna start with you. Contemporary is often the bust of the joke. People say, things like my five year old could have done that, but those contemporary sense of humor, what it can do and it's true that the contemporary is often the bus of the jokin from one who's worked in the office for several decades. I've had many a conversation with people who do derived contemporary art and defending is possibly jopin. One of my passions rates, it knock knock humor in contemporary. So. So I mean, presume you d think that that can you. Yeah, absolutely. There were a number of artists. Well, huge number. In fact, increasingly through the twentieth century, who use humor as a device in work often to make an underlying point which is not necessarily humorous than it south. If I can you sending postcards of us to parents and LT relatives fears, and I've often felt they were supposed to be off color. I love them. That's why send them. Do you think that ought is especially funny at them. I think we all need to censor humor meant take those are live in the u. k. one has to love the situation of in order to alleviate the stress and misery. At brexit. Brexit. I think post six in the UK. The moment is very frustrating. I guess it said it's a situation that we can immediately nothing about a solution to that is to make them. Mecom and areas works of art long before Brexit. Has your changed? He thinks since twenty sixteen, I couldn't really say. I mean, two years at my life isn't that long. So hard to say. I mean, it's a conversation that I have quite a lot. You know where people say to me. She contemporary out be serious. Can it becoming as well as areas to which I respond? That is perhaps misunderstanding of what the words serious and comic main not antonyms that I mean every other opposite seriousness is maybe incompetent. So dilettantism and the opposite of of comedy is, is misery this room for comedy and this seriousness in the same works. Any message that you wanted to live it somebody's is somehow sweetened a little bit with comedy. There's not a lot I can do about my my voice. I as an author as an artist as it were because it's just just my personality. My default setting is defined, find comedy and things. Visual. Jake's g think the visual is is well placed to make jokes. Is this something that that kind of visual that an object can do well or during painting just speak in a completely different way. To words, it's a different language and something just waiting much about the viewer, adding a commentary to it over now to it. So for example, seal floors, soul, which is a saw, apparently coming up through the floor, having cut almost a full circle. We have able to suspend disbelief somehow long enough to to get the joke and until off. But we know that there isn't somebody on the floor. Kind of stepping into it hesitantly and then Stephan out instead of laughing because, but there's also a sinister aspect of that work as well because you know, maybe somebody's trapped underneath and trying to get out. So I see there were very few one liners in the show and contemporary. That speaks to me most strongly as that which has several layers tuition. I think with Huma a lot of the best dotes do work on different levels. I'm interested in the mechanics of a visual joke about that of the most humor that we recognize standups sitcoms movies, novels the comedy relies heavily on timing and surprise. David, you cannot say this. How do you think that the mechanics of the visual joke different to those of say, a stand up comedian. I think every everything you say existing context. So when you're writing something that's to be read in a book, it's Pop's different from how you write something a wall and the Connery. Maybe you know, you make an object that communicate something is very different from a film that indicate something so. So there's a certain pitch to every media into every context..
