Women Rule: The Jealous Curator, Danielle Krysa
I guess there's an "art world" out there. Yet, I'm an artist and I teach kids about art and I feel FAR away from wherever it is. I could count on one hand the amount of times I've been to a gallery in the real world to see art that's new, by artists working now. There are very few spaces with new art that feel inviting to everybody (kids, non-billionaires, wearers-of-shorts). What is it about the way we share contemporary art that feels so elitist?
Well, I've got lots of thoughts about that BUT thanks to the internet and people like Danielle Krysa, we're bringing it to the people!
1. The Jealous Curator Blog. Here, she showcases the work of current artists and transcribes bits of interviews she's conducted on her podcast. *See some recent features at the bottom of this post.
2. The Jealous Curator Podcast. It's called "Art for Your Ear." Here, she interviews contemporary artists about their life, process, etc.
4. The Fancy Schmancy Gallery, an online gallery that let's you buy some (a small selection) of the art you see on the blog.
4. Her own cool art.
5. TED Talks, OWN Network appearances, speaking engagements, etc.
I'm so impressed with all that she's done to encourage creative work and promote working artists trying to make it in the real world.
Here are some recent posts that made me real jealous.
