We say THANK U, NEXT to RBG and do an art world update. Massive layoffs abound, and the Guggenheim buys the banana, can someone good at the economy please help them budget this?? Direct demands for scumbag board members to be removed from museums is great, but doesn’t it feel like these open letters are repeating themselves. How do we break the cycle and organize more effectively? Is it possible given the material conditions of these situations? We’re gonna try not despair and focus on these questions!!

OK and Lucia met up IRL in a weird little park. Enjoy the summer sounds of cicadas and ice cream trucks!! We had a wide-ranging philosophical discussion about reconstructing political imagination. We debate the role of art, fantasy, and fandom in our increasingly brutal reality. Support us on Patreon to hear the first hour of talk about otherkin, art world gossip, and focaccia!!

While OK was in the midst of an epic move, Lucia got a chance to speak with the painter Christine Tien Wang about teaching art remotely, the atemporality of making meme paintings, group psychology as taught by Andrea Fraser, and volunteering for prison abolition groups at a crucial time when prisons have become hotbeds for covid.
