About The Show

By The Way: A Contemporary Art News Podcast is a bi-weekly podcast hosted by two artists and art professionals and has featured topics like: are art fairs good for artists?, the Alt-Right’s criticism of The Obama’s National portraits, and the influence of “MADE-FOR-INSTAGRAM” exhibitions. The conversation is intimately intertwined with culture, society, law, money, and politics, and no punches are pulled in the discussion.
