EP17 / Talk: 'How to change the art world in 2 hours' at Latitudes Art Fair 2019

This episode is a talk that I recorded as part of Latitudes Art Fair last month, September 2019. It is an informal panel discussion, which was hosted by the brilliant Michelle Constant, is entitled “How to change the art world in 2 hours”. Thirteen artists, curators, gallerists, critics and arts advocates were invited to respond to this provocation. Each speaker had 5 minutes to champion their utopian wishes or practical solutions to make the art world a more supportive, equal and engaged space.

Thank you to Latitudes Art Fair for allowing me to record this talk and to publish it on the Unframed platform. Enjoy listening to this wonderfully interesting and collaborative presentation.
