FALLUCKA #7 - Ed Templeton

Part 3 of Ed Templeton episodes. The reason Ed Templeton was in Copenhagen was that he was here for a book signing on his latest book Tangentially Parenthetical.

We also talk about buying art with the heart vs. as an…

A Different Time ft. Todd James (#112)

One of the great things about making this show is the wide variation in experiences and interests we get to hear from the guests. After Nanna last time, we have a completely different type of artist on the show today, with a very different kind of story. It’s nice, because as artists, you slowly start to realize that there isn’t a single way forward, or a rule, or a technique to“make it”. So in that spirit, we have...

BTW #6 - A da Vinci and the Flaming Bag of Dog Poop

How could we not talk about this most recent Christie’s contemporary art auction.  The record breaking painting "by" Leonardo da Vinci titled Salvator Mundi sold for $450,312,500.  We aren’t talking about the obvious talking points, instead we go deeper into the painting’s history. It all plays out like Dan Brown novel. Yes, the guy who used to own Salvator Mundi was imprisoned in the 1990’s for...

BTW #4 - Theater of the Protest

Pressure from outside the art world, threats of violence, and an online petition nearing a million people have compelled the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York to remove several artworks from an exhibition. Art and China after 1989: Theater of the World is the title of the exhibition. The cause of the firestorm came when animal rights activists, such as Peta became aware of 3 art works. These 3 works could be misunderstood as...

BTW #2 - Death

A bit of change up on this episode of By The Way, as Eric and Ando  talk about Sam Durant’s sculpture titled Scaffold. Originally created by Sam Durant for dOCUMENTA (13) in Kassel, Germany, the work has since been purchased by the Walker Art Center, USA. The story does not end there. We hope you listen to hear about why some people say ‘That's a...

My Favorite Thing, Maybe ft. Cali Thornhill Dewitt (#88)

This week we have a man who’s production exists outside of any single plane of work, it’s Cali Thornhill Dewitt y’all. He has run an independent record label, he makes clothes, worked as a nanny for Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, and of course, is an artist in his own right. He’s a hard guy to pin down, and he’s a very thoughtful man, so it was a pleasure to hear about...

The Checklist ft. William Powhida (#53)

We live in a strange world, and an even stranger art world. Luckily William Powhida is here to firmly poke a stick in the eye of the art world, and we love it. We were lucky enough to get to sit down with him right before the preview of his exhibition here in Copenhagen, at Gallery Poulsen. We got to talk about his work, the art world, and the simple joys of quality shit talking. But really this episode is an in-depth look at...

We caught up with him before the opening of his show together with Per Kirkeby here in Copenhagen at Gallery Susanne Ottesen, and he stunned us with his eloquence and his...
