Jessica Fuentes, William Sarradet, and Brandon Zech discuss the story of Anna Delvey, and also talk about why so many galleries are moving to Los Angeles.

“If these galleries are regularly showing artists who could be acquired by big LA museums, moving to LA is a quick way for them to propel their artists’ prices even higher.”

This week’s podcast is sponsored in part by The City of San Antonio’s Department of Arts & Culture, which has a robust line-up of art to discover for free. Currently on view in the department’s Centro de Artes Gallery is an exhibition inspired by the New York Foundation for the Arts Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program. Learn more here.
