"With a leading artist, which we explore their work and their life through their cultural experiences. The historic living artists, they most admire the museums that they return to the books music and other media that inspire them the art that's pin to the studio wounds. As an art critic, I embrace all forms of contemporary art but I do have a particular soft spot for painting and so this first series of a brush with features, four interviews with painters, and in the first episode I speak to the Kenyan British artist Michael Teach? There isn't another artist I go. There isn't another autism paints like Goya that can do the things that he does which quite frankly should be terrible. Utterly convincing. He reflects on very difficult aspects of human nature the textures, the paint in those painting the it's just an incredibly daring way of using the staff unbelievable like there's something immense about being in the presence of that because you understand so much about somebody. So, join us on Apple PODCASTS spotify youtube or wherever you get your podcast for a brush with Michael Savage dropping on the fifth of August seed. Now. Museums have been steadily reopening over the past few weeks and given that this is the last episode of the present series of the weekend we thought we'd remind you about some of the exhibitions that have reopened or newly-opened with. Or us, team will talk about shows. They're a bit later but I, I was joined by Gareth Harris g contributing editor at the newspaper an Anna Brady our market editor to talk about UK and Europe.

"It's not a metric to compare against this. This is a fascinating question. Because when you look at the figures from two thousand eight two thousand nine when the market in inverted commas collapsed or had a serious downturn It bounced back very very quickly. Indeed and Within within a year or so and the reason for that was the central banks use quantitative easing and they took great financial fire hose and sprayed liquidity at The financial institutions and that very quickly inflated asset prices for example property equities and art and. So we that kick started the boom again now very little. That money actually trickled down into what we would recognize. As the real economy ended exaggerated financial inequality income inequality to to to really concerning degree. The big question hanging over this current crisis is how governments again to pay for their rescue patches if they take a more imaginative approach and raw the news of quantitative easing all go forbid tax cuts them income inequality would be reduced and actually paradoxically that that would put money into the market. What we're seeing though. The for example is a fascinating podcasting The philosopher a neuroscientist Sam Harris and Andrew Yang who is a the Democratic candidate for the presidency they discussed income inequality and the big choices facing America and of course if trump wins in December that it's their view that income inequality will really quite explode an already the rescue packages the devised by the US government. Most of that money vast majority is going to be corporations that will give wealthy collectors money and the whole thing could bounce back very very quickly indeed if on the other hand trump loses the election and Biden word to win then I think we'll social democratic and more more more and more spreads settlement whitens you That would interestingly back up the theory. That pandemics generally reduce income inequality. But I notice today in the Guardian that Thomas Pikachu who's ultra capital not twenty fifth century. He's unsure which way or go on a knife-edge edge where the income inequality will explode or that will be imaginative solutions. The settlement and money will be more evenly spread if the latter happens actually that will that will suppress prices in the art market. It's IT'S A it's a fascinating choice. One of the interesting questions will be if we get to a situation where there is a recovery to let say. There's a positive recovery things go better than expected to what extent digital will have an increased presence in the armory or whether it will go back to this kind of status quo. Before you know. We'll we'll be. We've learned a lot from that digital experience but actually this were better. What do so in other words. I suppose what question asking is. Do you feel we now. Face a future in which digital continues to grow and grow in the armory of auction houses and galleries or do you think there is a possibility where it just it retreats back to a relatively insignificant role in this. I think Swat what one fascinating element would be off as. I like a lot of people that you I'm sure looked to the the the the freeze jellab fat in one interesting aspect of it slightly jumping around is the to get into it. You had to have a VIP pass which I thought was very telling illustration of the exclusive in marginal nature of the art world Com ordinary people. Look at it but apparently you have to be. Vip TAP news around. I thought that was quite early. Anyway once you get into goes into the side and I think reaction slightly reflect. There was a good piece by Tim. Schneider who sort of side by side with a collective going through the fair interesting lack collector bought three pieces and they all been reserved beforehand. Roy What was interesting about is. I couldn't really tell the difference between this is an art fair and accurate. Gator Internet shopping site. I felt the time so I could I could. I have been buying a shed or rowing machine. Really didn't make that much difference an experience. It was just really really boring now. If you if you look at some of the viewing rooms the opping created there are some quite imagine it solutions coming up an occurred to me that the world is actually a small industry which is why big tech hasn't really gotten bold but it struck me if someone really got hold this ball and ran with it. Who is very savvy intensive terms of tech? They could go to the these Dealers several actually. Which is virtual fairs? Which aren't really fares I can do something more exciting. And it struck me. The the the the sort of dullness of these events is able the no the vents these virtual fares. I think they're very very vulnerable. And something very mentioned so much. More imaginative could be created and very quickly The EMINI if of freeze not balls could could slip away quite quickly and I think secondly I having spoken to de la's in spoken to to to people who are construct lease viewing rooms. I think dealers realizing that when they're well-designed they do drool people in and are very very effective at jumped to when we get round to it again going into a gallery and seeing the object in person and talking about it And so I I can see that this Refined and much more imaginative approach to tech will actually augment the physical live aspect of Cetinje got a life undulations Has a slightly positive intimate? Lost Exclusive Scott. Thank you very much. Thank you You can reach Ray writing for the art newspaper at the newspaper. Dot Com or on the APP a bit later. We'll hear from our art market. It is about the range of digital initiatives and we took to Rebecca Salter about Leeann spiel yet but first here are some of the top stories on the website this week.

"Yeah. These people put Costes brought to you in association with Bonhams auctioneers since seventeen ninety three to find out more visit bombs dot com. Hello and welcome to the newspaper cost. I'm Ben league this week. We're in Hong Kong and New York later, we'll be looking at the world between empires. The new show at the Metropolitan Museum of art in New York. Looking at the moment when the Middle East was the meeting point for the party, and and Roman empires. But first this week is the seventh edition of Basel Hong Kong the Aniela fair this year. It features more than two hundred ninety galleries from across the world half of them. Asian galleries or international galleries with Asian outposts in a moment where we discussing next edition in Hong Kong of the Taiwanese born artist, Richard Lynn, but first Gareth Harris, the newspapers senior contributing editor spoke to speak global director of art Basel at the fair. Hello. We're here. The seventh edition of Basel Hong Kong. I'm speaking tomorrow speed global director, how will you Mark? I'm very well. We had a fantastic opening day yesterday goods. Can you throw some insights on the fair this year and throw some light on the different sectors whites? And essentially herb that kind of thing. I I came to Hong Kong ten years ago when this fair was already K, and when M C H parent company wasn't involved within a year, we had bought into the show in two thousand eleven and then twenty thirteen we've launched as Basel Hong Kong in the twenty years I've been involved in the art world, I as a journalist and then as a fair director. I've never experienced fair having this kind of sustained heat their fares launch. And then people are interested for year or two, but this show in Hong Kong has has continuously developed an advanced. I think this is a good example. You know, we have this year our freshman class so to speak of galleries from the west is amazing. You have people legendary galleries like Paula Cooper, Matthew marks Lauren Augustine. Andrew craps, max heads slur. Morell? Regan projects. Richard doggy, Richard noggin, Sheila one man booth isn't booth. We'd be happy to have any fair would be happy to have. So they have it come to Asia. Which is almost counterintuitive is quite a remarkable thing at the same time. I think around the show the city has grown, and I think at our Paul's what's really important for us. It's not just what happens in the halls. What happens in the city in the same way that in Miami? The private collections were such an important part of the development of the art Basel Miami Beach show in Basel the public collections as such an important part of the week. In Hong Kong the galleries. And the expansion of the galleries and the opening of new galleries has brought a continued life rejuvenation to the show on. So whether it's you know empty gallery, bringing Chinese artists back who'd sort of disappeared off the map for twenty years after being having his last show at Kostelic to sue show. So yes, exactly or. Whether it's leaving or via opening, you know directly across to them round in rental amid an avalanche bouquets from local friends. The gallery is have played a very important part in it makes sense. Because Hong Kong is a commercial hub in the way that Miami and Basel or not I this is one of the great things extent to which each fair has its own identity. We run the numbers on these things constantly one of the most remarkable numbers that I saw which the prize me actually was that of the five hundred galleries that we have across our three shows there are less than one hundred do all three shows. So it's not that you have a kind of traveling circus. You really have a platform which is reflective of the region rooted in the region in every place. That's really interesting the rest one hundred dual three shows there are ninety six according to the numbers that I just saw interesting. So you could make some local and international and that was one of the questions to include Chinese galleries hung. Dealers. Well, we don't think of Hong Kong Chinese show, we think of it as an Asian show and wave back when when we launched art Basel Hong Kong, we we started to analyze what the mix of galleries was in Basel in Miami Beach, and we found it organically, the Manny beach show was fifty percent Galeries from the Americas meeting north central and South America. In basel. It was fifty percent European galleries. And we said. This is an important factor. This is something which ties the show to its region. And also realistically to the region's collectors because the reality is that although people will travel from far away to come to a fair, the people who will come every year, the people we can hope to really catalyze and to have them start coming and then come regularly are the people who are within that region in Asia of courses and immense region. So we've set out to have show which is fifty percent Galeries were active in Asia. And that's a really important factor for do they have expedition spaces us next mission station Asia. And although of course, now galleries like Hauser, and vir. It's Werner leafy, or if you white cube count within that the reality is you still have more than one hundred galleries, which are Asian in the most complete sense of the word. You know, they started here the core of their artists

So so it's and has a knowledge of French may give away too much about him. But that space is just inviting something a bit rude.

And again, they haven't gotten their own one and someone had to write that Email address on the back. That thing is massive, isn't it? Yeah. It's like a bit of bold. I mean, yes, you could plus rule with this thing. I think. Yeah. If you come bend in half you've gone too heavy on the stock. That's for sure. I'm going to hand you too because I feel like I'm doing all the talking for you. These one is for a photographer, and I'm not quite sure what the other one does. But give us a bit of a description of one of the ones you holding a game. I think photon on business cards shouldn't exist. And if you'll all this talk. And if I two is particularly unpleasant of semi-naked women silent exercise bowl that I think is an atrocity, and then the other one is another photo someone going down a slide. Across a water slide in a phone party of space hive I think you need to maybe me a line, and I can give you some some clear direction on what you should be doing. But isn't what you're currently doing and just to finish this over the levity in menace. I've cod which I believe is for drug tater. I'm not sure where it was sourced. It's empty says.

"Have. Weirdly intimate. That we run out of time on that particular show you might come to the end, but Gareth it reminded you of a couple of things that you wanted to Ming Smith endowed bay. Talk through this. Yeah, share saw an excellent show, Nottingham contemporary states of America, which was a talk show and included works by Dow would buy and Ming Smith who both portray Harlem as such. So it made me think of the clear Joseph. Yes, flypaper Francesca and I were talking about this before we came in. I think Ming Smith is one of the most underrated photographers. There is she was the first African American female of talk for whose work was acquired by MoMA in New York. Not many people know that who works fantastic. She's experimental, she, she photographed the inhabitants of Harlem. Well from the nine hundred seventy s to the nineteen ninety s and some of the images are just breathtaking Casablanca Harlem in one thousand nine hundred three. There's an image call American dream Harlem from nineteen seventy-two which shows a Father Christmas inebriated on his side. This poetic responses to to life in Harlem. So I think she's just fantastic Dawood bay. He I think he shot a series of works in Harlem in the late seventies his family, I think used to go to church there. So he was immersed in life used to attend tent revival meetings, and I think is really important. You know, they show Baba's men in Bola hats. He does not cause stereotypes at all, and his career has just come along in leaps and bounds. We were discussing this again, he's he's underrated overlooked conveyor so Harlem for me. That was touchstone of of the the show on the strand. And it made me think about these two photographers in a much more considered way to undiscovered gems at least into carrot Howard talking about him franchesca you wanted to talk about something. I certainly was in London in time for free. Reina's under to wait, call the entertainer and it was put together by a listen artist, Ryan gander alongside curator, Jonathan p watts. It's probably for me this the entire point of what's something like phrases, which is creating an audience in having discussions and seeing things you wouldn't normally get say he did a pop up space on coke streets and invited loads in day. They invited loads of different artists. Everyone from marina Abramovich and Ullevaal Eliason too small young people to critics to pick a book that they like usually critical book. Take two pages photocopy it annotated and the neater printed and hung on like full Scott that you could tear off the wall sid cap. Exactly. It was really DIY thing, but basically they were giving away the most incredible annotated reading list and pages of information that were fascinating by hundreds of books that even as an academic art critic had never heard of on its was for me. It was a way of discovering new things to write about how autism think how ideas inform what they make, how like ideas from politics, everything from birth whole brek, too feminist theory from the seven days to marine Abramovich doing a picture of something it was. It was dated botch the drawing on top of pieces of dumping it was super inspiring. I honestly think it was the Honiara point of doing anything like phrase that it shouldn't just be about purchase and things can be free and engaging interesting to abroad, wonderful audience. This is also free like h strong Ganden to do this. Impish kind of imagination and a deep reading of the situation funds himself in a successful contemporary artist kind of thing. An appreciation of the people falling through the gaps become interested in about how do you like what's the entire point of what I do critic curator, what we do all of us. We want to share information with his broad with people outside. He wouldn't necessarily say it, and I think if you're doing exhibitions that are free politically, I think that's an incredibly important thing to do, which shows do if you're actually sharing information like and make. If you make one person read one of those books. And I think Ryan governor, Jonathan have been immensely successful in what they do when you're right, strange days is free. Yes. For months. And I think what's so interesting is nothing. That's what really discovered on some house next door, that entire areas really become a hub for very broad generation and people who don't necessarily go to art exhibitions warning to engage with things real ROY in for that. Yes, exactly. And the things I mean of someone's house with studios as well. There's interesting people walking in and out of all those buildings around there and UCLA suppose there is in the middle. Yeah, kings right in the middle. There is vibrant part of town. We should encourage people to get down because yeah, it's free and it needs these to goes over to said the stripe twice, and I sell do again. If I, I might happen if I'm in the area, she caught a lot of other things. We should say on the Ryan gone on Ryan gander, the entertain read it that show in Costa his finished, but it is a book. So people might want to search for that and trying that out as recommended by Francesca governor highly, sadly folks. That brings us to the end of. Today's program strange days, memories of future is on until the ninth of December store. One eighty two strand. Thanks of course to my guests. Franchesca Gavin and Gareth Harris of their words of wisdom. Thanks to my producer of course, Holly Fischer, we'll be back at the same time next week with reports from can as I hit to MIT com to get the low down. We're going to be watching of the next year on the small screen, but for the time being for but pound. Thank you very much for tuning in.
