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.
