Art-making can often be a solitary process, with hours spent toiling away without any human interaction. But the one companion that many artists have throughout their workday is music, and a constant stream of soul, punk, hip-hop, or cumbia can fill a lonely studio with voices and vitality.
This is the premise behind the podcast and archival project What Artists Listen To, created by artist Pia Pack. The weekly podcast features interviews with female artists discussing their creative soundtracks — punctuated with musical excerpts — and how their choices of tunes impact their artistic processes and their lives outside the studio. A Spotify playlist accompanies each podcast. Pasts guests have included Alison Saar, Kim Schoenstadt, and Maysha Mohamedi. This Saturday, Pack will host a live podcast taping at Chimento Contemporary featuring Zeal Harris, Alexandra Grant, Shizu Saldamando, and Cole James.
When: Saturday, April 7, 3–5pm
Where: Chimento Contemporary (622 South Anderson Street, Space 105, Boyle Heights, Los Angeles)
