Call us Anna Delvey ’cause we’re delving into Soho. We get into the early days of some of the most powerful people in the art market, and how their greed has gone on to destroy neighborhoods and countless lives. This episode we try to demystify the “Art World” to better understand its influence. Art has a complicated role in gentrification; the Grayson Perry cartoon about artist neighborhoods has resonated with millions of people in its second life as an internet meme. We tie the idea of Artwashing to precarious economic situations exemplified by Richard Florida and Mistressvilles.

WE CAN’T EAT PRESTIGE! We joined the picket line in front of the Museum of Modern Art to greet the guests at their annual fundraiser “Party in the Garden” The MoMA workers organized their own “Party on the Pavement” to amplify their demand for a fair labor contract. We say hi to our friends Jeff and Maria, and learn what it’s like at the bargaining table. Email the MoMA director, let him know what you think: glenn_lowry@moma.org

Beep beep!! New Art and Labor here! Your favorite podcast focusing on the on-going struggle to survive as an art or cultural worker. Hosted by O.K. Fox and Lucia Love. This episode we fill you in even more social justice activism happening in the late sixties/early seventies. We talk proto Guerrilla Girls, and we trace the legacy of the Black Emergency Cultural Coalition’s pressure on The Met, MoMA, and The Whitney to current protests of The Brooklyn Museum. We despair about the continued lack of representation in these institutions, and ponder the effectiveness of identity-based strategies. We also get into some contextual tangents about Art & Language, The Fox, and Artists Meeting For Cultural Change.
