Christina Rees and Brandon Zech discuss the things about the art world we don’t miss, the things we do miss, and how to pace yourself when venturing back out.

“The way artists make their name in the world is by building consensus. And you can’t build consensus if people don’t see your work and talk to each other about the work.”
