Episode 112 - Disaster Artwashing w/ Jenny Dubnau

We’re joined by artist and longtime antigentrification activist Jenny Dubnau to discuss he new piece in Hyperallergic “Artwashing During a Pandemic: Should Artists Say No to Real Estate Crumbs?” Jenny is a founding member of Artist Studio Affordability Project (ASAP) as well as an accomplished oil painter. We discuss the often tricky balance of politics, complicity, and personal practice. Perhaps there should there be a 12 Steps to Artist Studio Hell!

Episode 16 - Housing and Displacement



Go to the 3rd Anti-Columbus Day Tour: https://www.facebook.com/events/235077237185003/ We build on our “Artwashing and Soho” episode using our direct experiences and observations of gentrification in our neighborhoods. We do a “Goofus and Gallant” for anti-gentrication art. Shoutout to the locals, but also these thoughts can be applied all over the place. It’s a layered topic, but I think we illustrate our points well even though I have a bad cold.

Episode 4 - Artwashing and Soho



Call us Anna Delvey ’cause we’re delving into Soho. We get into the early days of some of the most powerful people in the art market, and how their greed has gone on to destroy neighborhoods and countless lives. This episode we try to demystify the “Art World” to better understand its influence. Art has a complicated role in gentrification; the Grayson Perry cartoon about artist neighborhoods has resonated with millions of people in its second life as an internet meme. We tie the idea of Artwashing to precarious economic situations exemplified by Richard Florida and Mistressvilles.
