Artist Susan Unterberg kept her secret for 22 years, but after an article in the New York Times came out last month, everyone knows the New York-based artist is the person behind the mysterious foundation.
Called Anonymous Was a Woman, the foundation gives $25,000 in unrestricted grants to female artists over the age of 40. I spoke to recipient Nene Humphrey about the impact the gift made on her life, and then Unterberg herself.
Then I invite critic Zachary Small to talk about a knock-out small show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, On the Ropes: Vintage Boxing Cards from the Jefferson R. Burdick Collection, that he thinks deserves a careful look.
A special thanks to Miserable Chillers & Sun Kin for the music to this week’s episode, which features their latest album, Adoration Room. You can listen to that and more at miserablechillers.bandcamp.com and other streaming services.
