Episode 2 : Art


In this episode I walk through New York’s Museum of Modern Art with Yi and Ray from China. The episode is bookended with an interview with David Bowie on Charlie Rose and intercut with appropriate excerpts from New York art critic Robert Hughes from his famous series Shock Of The New broadcast in the 80s and The New Shock of the New broadcast twenty years later.


I recommend looking more deeply into all of the people and subjects in this episode. Here are a few links to get you started.

Or it’s also around You Tube. Here’s one link to Episode 1.

His book “Nothing If Not Critical” is a good overview of artist with critiques. It has no images but it’s a good read.
