The best news team in art gathers for another conversation about the biggest stories facing the arts community. News editor Jasmine Weber, and reporters Hakim Bishara and Valentina di Liscia, join me to reflect on acts of solidarity across the art world, the growing #CancelRent movement, the bizarre IRS complaint filed by an attorney against the Whitney Museum, museum layoffs, a coalition of artists calling to lift Gaza sanctions, how US cities are dealing with arts funding, Frieze New York going online, and much more.

Hyperallergic continues to be on top of the biggest stories in the art community during the pandemic; subscribe to our daily newsletter to stay up to date.
