This Friday, we will be taping our second installment of the Hyperallergic TV podcast, Reactor, and we’re inviting our readers to attend as a live studio audience. You will be able to ask questions and participate if you choose at the end of the discussion.
Our confirmed guests for the podcast are artist William Powhida (who will act as moderator), Time Out New York art critic Howard Halle, Art Fag City’s Paddy Johnson, and artist Nate Hill. UPDATED: Artist/Work of Art contestant Trong Gia Nguyen will also be joining us as a featured guest.
The discussion will tackle the topic of “Mainstreaming Art” and will touch upon the rush to push contemporary art into the mainstream, how it’s audience may change, and what it could mean for the future of art. We will certainly touch upon the hot button issues of the Work of Art TV series, James Franco’s desire to be taken seriously in the art world, and other art/pop phenomena.
We will be taping this Friday, September 10th at 3:15pm sharp and NO ONE will be admitted after that time as to ensure that there will be no interruptions during the recording. The event will last no more than 60 minutes.
Spaces are very limited so please RSVP as soon as possible.
