Brandon Zech and special guest Pete Gershon discuss the history of Houston’s artist-run spaces, and also talk about Gershon’s new position as Curator of Programs at the Orange Show Center for Visionary Art.
“If a space lasted for a year or a couple of years and then the proprietor moved on to do something else, that’s hardly a failure.”
This week’s podcast is sponsored in part by the Nasher Sculpture Center. Muse on art, the body, and change in Nairy Baghramian: Modèle vivant, an exhibition that The Dallas Morning News calls a “human and industrial mix.” See new works by the artist and explore the dialogue with classic masterpieces at the Nasher Sculpture Center, including Roy Lichtenstein, Aristide Maillol, and Henri Matisse.
