Why New York’s Art Scene Will Reign Supreme Post-COVID
The news cycle for the past seven months has been dominated by staggering data points that seek to quantify the scope of the pandemic's effects on the United States and beyond. Within the art world, statistics detailing layoffs and furloughs, museums facing imminent closure, and galleries struggling to make ends meet add to the collective fear and anxiety gripping the world at large. But there have also been bright spots in both the broad economy, and, surprisingly, within the art market itself. A new study commissioned by the Independent art fair and Crozier Fine Arts, carried out by data guru Clare McAndrew lays out one aspect that is not just surviving amid the turmoil—it's actually thriving. For the inaugural NYC Art World Report, an analysis of dozens of private art collectors living in New York shared insights about their buying practices, interests, and disdains within the new, largely virtual art ecosystem. On this week's episode, Elizabeth Dee, veteran gallerist and founder of Independent, joins the podcast to put the report into context, and shares her thoughts on its conclusion: that New York City remains the epicenter for committed art collectors, and will continue to reign supreme across the international landscape. As a coda to Elizabeth's observations, Artnet News's business editor Tim Schneider provides a layman's analysis of the data within the report, and helps make sense of what to do with this new wealth of information.

Episode No. 472 features artist Bisa Butler and curator Malcolm Daniel. The Art Institute of Chicago is showing "Bisa Butler: Portraits," a presentation of Butler's recent art along with some works from the AIC's collection that have informed Butler. The exhibition, which the AIC co-organized with the Katonah Museum of Art, was curated by Erica Warren. It will be on view in Chicago through April 19, 2021. Butler's work will also be included in the Toledo Museum of Art's "Radical Tradition: American Quilts and Social Change," which examines how artists and other makers have used quilts to address America's present and future between the Civil War era and the present. The exhibition was curated by Lauren Applebaum and will be on view through February 14, 2021. Butler's work frequently addresses African diasporic history, American art and the transit of textiles around the globe. Her work is in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Minneapolis Institute of Art, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and the AIC. Among her many group show credits is "Plumb Line: Charles White and the Contemporary" at the California African American Museum, which she and host Tyler Green mention on the program.

Tracey Emin CBE (Special Episode at Royal Academy of Arts)
Talk Art EXCLUSIVE!!! Russell and Robert meet Tracey Emin CBE RA for an intimate, private tour of her major new exhibition with Edvard Munch at the Royal Academy of the Arts in central London. Running until 28th February 2021, this feature-length interview was recorded during lockdown within this extraordinary exhibition. 'The Loneliness of the Soul' is scheduled to open to the public in early December 2020. Talk Art fun fact: Emin is the first guest to come onto our podcast TWICE! Emin has been a major figure in contemporary art for over 25 years; Munch pioneered a radical new style known as Expressionism. In this landmark exhibition, Tracey Emin selects masterpieces by Edvard Munch to show alongside her most recent paintings. Tracey Emin has long had a fascination with the Norwegian expressionist and painter of The Scream, Edvard Munch: in her words, “I’ve been in love with this man since I was eighteen”. In 1998 she even created a haunting video piece filmed at the same Oslo jetty that was the location of many of his well-known works. It is just one example of how, like Munch, she embraces even the most painful experiences to create art. The exhibition features more than 25 of Emin’s works including paintings, some of which will be on display for the first time, as well neons and sculpture. These works, which explore the loneliness of the soul, have been chosen by Emin to sit alongside a carefully considered selection of 19 oils and watercolours drawn from MUNCH’s rich collection and archives in Oslo, Norway. This is an opportunity to learn more about Emin’s work in a highly personal show. The selection reveals not only how Munch has been a constant inspiration – particularly through his profound portrayals of women – but also showcases Emin’s wide-ranging skills as an artist, which often interweave painting, drawing and writing. Seen together, the dark territories and raw emotions that both artists navigate will emerge as a moving exploration of grief, loss and longing. Exhibition organised by MUNCH, Norway, in partnership with the Royal Academy of Arts @RoyalAcademyArts. Follow hashtag #EminMunch or #Tracey Emin to view more of her work at Instagram.

Rossini's La Cenerentola: Opera's Cinderella Story
Gioachino Rossini’s operatic version of the Cinderella story may not have any enchanted mice or pumpkins, but there’s plenty of magic in the music. Cinderella (or La Cenerentola, in Italian) has silently suffered the abuse of her stepfather and stepsisters, but in true fairy tale fashion, her fate changes for the better and all is made right by the triumph of goodness over evil. In the opera’s joyous finale “Nacqui all’affanno… Non più mesta,” Cenerentola looks ahead to a future with no more sadness. In this episode, Rhiannon Giddens and guests explore this universal tale and how it still resonates today. Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato sings the aria onstage at the Metropolitan Opera. The Guests Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato loves the strength and sincerity of this great Rossini heroine. She has performed the title role in La Cenerentola at leading opera houses around the world and believes in its absolute celebration of human goodness. Writer Fred Plotkin loves opera – all of it! – and he shares this love in his book Opera 101: A Guide to Learning and Loving Opera. He has a special connection to Rossini’s music, which he feels is all about the heartbeat. Maria Tatar is a research professor at Harvard University in the fields of folkore and mythology. She vividly remembers when her sister used to read fairy tales to her as a child, and believes that we have the right and responsibility to keep retelling these stories in a way that’s meaningful to us today. Mezzo-soprano Alma Salcedo’s mother tells her she’s been singing since she was nine months old. Her personal Cinderella story began in Venezuela and has brought her to Spain, where she has fought to keep her dreams of being a singer alive.

Do we have to like you to like your art? [97]
This week's episode was inspired by two different listener questions. Cathie asked whether likability matters when it comes to appreciating art (for example, does it matter that Gauguin might not have been the nicest person?). Meanwhile, Pam asked how much she has to reveal about herself in order to sell her work. We decided it would be interesting to debate this idea of the artist persona and how much it matters. Our discussion begins with great artists who were, let's say, less than perfect. Does the fact that Caravaggio committed at least one murder mean that we can't appreciate his art? If he had been alive today, would he have been shunned by galleries and collectors, thus depriving us of his work and influence? And how much does it matter if we find out that our favourite artists have traits and habits we don't like? We then go onto to discuss the importance of persona when it comes to selling our own work. How much - if anything - do we need to reveal? How honest do we need to be? Is it enough to simply show our work - or do we need to show more of ourselves? And what are the key messages we should be sending?

Win a Handmade Icelandic Sweater & Hear a Big Announcement!
This might be a short episode but it is very special because I have two big announcements! As you can tell from the title of the episode, one of the announcements is that I’m giving away a handmade Icelandic sweater. The other is that Gunnar, my husband, and I have partnered up with the Reykjavík Grapevine to create an All Things Iceland box full of Icelandic goodies. The Grapevine is hosting the box on their site.  I have made a video on my YouTube channel explaining all the awesomeness in the box and how you can get free shipping from Iceland to anywhere in the world. Which if you don’t know, shipping from Iceland can be quite expensive. By using my special code, you save a lot. Gunnar and I both chose different things to put in the box. In the video we talk about why we each choose these specific things.  Altogether there are nine things in the box, which I think gives it some great variety. I know that many of you wished you could have come to Iceland this year, so we wanted to bring a bit of Iceland to you this holiday season. How to Win an Icelandic Sweater I felt like it was important to announce this now just so you have enough time to get the box for the holiday season. Just note that there are limited edition items in the box that are specific to winter and the upcoming holidays. Also, if you win the sweater, you can choose to get one for yourself or a loved one, which is another awesome gift. Buy the All Things Iceland box. The video also has the details about how you can enter to win the handmade Icelandic sweater. The added bonus is that I am also giving away a signed copy of “The Little Book of The Icelanders” by Alda Sigmundsdóttir. I was fortunate to interview her early on when I started this podcast. Her book gives you a great insight into Icelandic habits.  So, one person will win a sweater and one person will win a signed copy of the book. Of course, if you follow All  Things Iceland on YouTube, it will definitely be there. Join All Things Iceland on Patreon Lastly, the members of the All Things Iceland Patreon community got early access to the video and how to enter to win an Icelandic sweater. I shared it with them yesterday and I made the video public today. So, in addition to the content that is put on that platform, which is not posted anywhere else, every membership tier gets early access to giveaways, special discounts and promotions.
