Pussy, Drugs, and Jeff Koons
Today Eric and Ando blaze through 4 topics. Pussy Riot seeks asylum in Sweden, and the Guggenheim offers Donald Trump a golden toilet by Maurizio Cattelan. Topics become more serious when they bring up Nan Goldin and the opioid crisis in the US. Goldin calls on her fellow artists and art institutions to resist the Sackler Family and Purdue Pharma. What would be an episode BTW without an interjection of Jeff Koons. We discuss how he wants to "honor" of the victims of the recent terrorist attacks in Paris. Thanks for listening to By The Way.

Should Thomas Kinkade Paint Trump's National Portrait?
It’s episode 10! Barack and Michelle Obama’s National Portraits were revealed and the gossipy side of the internet was a buzz. On this episode, Ando and Eric discuss the good, the bad, and crazy surrounding these two interesting paintings. They dive into the history of The National Portrait Gallery at The Smithsonian, and the other Contemporary artists represented in the collection. A bizarre and racist interpretation of the Barack’s painting by the Alt-Right. The most important is topic though is who should be commissioned Donald Trump’s portrait?

So Baroque That You Have No Monet
Is the Contemporary art world growing or shrinking? Are there more or less opportunities for artists today than in past decades? What is the future gallery model? In this episode Eric and Ando talk about the mega-art dealer David Zwirner's expanding global empire. And how over recent years the mid-level galleries have been closing their doors. The closure of these mid-level galleries have often been due to poor finances, high operating costs, art fair expenses, and lack of new risk-taking collectors. New models are emerging to combat some of these pressures, but will any of them sustain? We also call attention to spaces like TEGN: Art-space (DK), Nordic Stories (SWE), The 14th Factory (US), and Condo (US). Thanks for listening to By The Way.

BTW Mini-episode #1 Announcement
News from the art world does not stop when we are unable to bring it to you on By The Way: A Contemporary Art News Podcast. Many of the stories that we discuss on BTW continue to evolve after the release of an episode. Those of us here at Cultural Bandwidth have decided to introduce By The Way Mini-episodes. These are short episodes that will update all you the listeners on all those stories.
By The Way Mini-episode - Returned, Removed, and Yippee Ki Yay MotherFucker
We follow up on a few stories in this By The Way Mini-episode titled Returned, Removed, and Yippee Ki Yay MotherFucker.    The first topic is a follow up from BTW #1 - Thievery, when Ando and I discussed the smuggling of Iraqi artifacts by the American craft store giant Hobby Lobby.    “Art and China After 1989: Theater of the World.” is a controversial exhibition we spoke about in BTW #4 - Theater of the Protest. It is now traveling to Spain with a few new modifications to the exhibition.   As always Jeff Koons has to peek his nose into the podcast even-though we covered the lawsuit filed against him in BTW #12 “Something is rotten in the state of Denmark”. He his now being sued by the Hollywood producer that gave us the movie Die Hard.  For more By The Way, follow us on Twitter@ByTheWay_ArtPod, Facebook@By The Way: A Contemporary Art News Podcast, and Instagram@Bythewaypodcast.

Theater of the Protest
Pressure from outside the art world, threats of violence, and an online petition nearing a million people have compelled the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York to remove several artworks from an exhibition. Art and China after 1989: Theater of the World is the title of the exhibition. The cause of the firestorm came when animal rights activists, such as Peta became aware of 3 art works.  These 3 works could be misunderstood as cruel to animals. Eric and Ando unpack this story, and in the process will most likely offend a few listeners. So let us know if they are missing the point on this episode of By The Way.   If you enjoy our podcast please consider becoming a patreon and support us on our Patreon page.   For more By The Way, follow us on Twitter @ByTheWay_ArtPod, Facebook @By The Way: A Contemporary Art News Podcast, and Instagram @cultural_bandwidth.

All About My Selfie
It finally has come to Eric and Ando talking about Instagram. Take about 5 minutes to watch the video clip in the links below to get a better understanding of what we are discussing today.   Audiences are more comfortable viewing and buying art via their phones than ever before. Why would there not be curators creating exhibitions with that interaction in mind? A trend of “MADE-FOR-INSTAGRAM” exhibitions are trying to change the way we engage with our traditional institutions. In this episode, Eric and Ando discuss two specific spaces. The Museum of Ice Cream in New York, and the Color Factory in San Francisco.   For more By The Way, follow us on Twitter @ByTheWay_ArtPod, Facebook @By The Way: A Contemporary Art News Podcast, and Instagram @cultural_bandwidth.

Anish Kapoor Vs. The NRA
Recently, the artist Anish Kapoor filed a lawsuit against the NRA over the use of one of his most famous work in a recruitment campaign.

Money
Well dOCUMENTA happened to pop up again in the news for this episode. Ando actually heard about this story too!   One of the most prestigious art exhibitions, dOCUMENTA (15) is on the brink of bankruptcy. We try to unravel how that could have happened. Who is to blame? The curators, a local politician, and poor management. The future of dOCUMENTA is now threatened. Join us and see if we can make heads or tails of it.   If you enjoy our podcast please consider becoming a patreon and support us on our Patreon page.   For more By The Way, follow us on Twitter @ByTheWay_ArtPod, Facebook @By The Way: A Contemporary Art News Podcast, and Instagram @cultural_bandwidth.

Thievery
On the inaugural episode of By The Way Eric presents Ando with 2 news stories. The first story is about the craft store giant Hobby Lobby smuggling Middle Eastern artifacts into the US. In our second story we discuss the stolen works by street artist Invaders in the daylight on the streets of Paris. No wonder people are stealing them when the can reach the price of $250,000 at Sotheby’s.   If you enjoy our podcast please consider becoming a patreon and support us on our Patreon page.     For more By The Way, follow us on Twitter @ByTheWay_ArtPod, Facebook @By The Way: A Contemporary Art News Podcast, and Instagram @cultural_bandwidth.

What Do Bhutan, France, and Iran All Have In Common?
Eric and Ando take a trip around the world in this episode. Iranian contemporary art gallerist is facing a jail time, corporal punishment, and confiscation of their assets for their involvement in the art world. We discuss street artist Invader and his tasteless placement of his works in the country of Bhutan. We first spoke about Invader in BTW episode #1 - Thievery.  Lastly, we discuss a legal case in France, where Facebook is being charged with limiting the freedom of expression of a school teacher. The teacher charges that Facebook deleted his account when he posted Gustave Courbet’s The Origin of the World (1866).

“52 & They Art All Against You”
Back with a vengeance is By The Way with episode #13 “52 & They Art All Against You”.  On this episode listen to Eric Wall and Ando discuss what may become the largest US public art project ever. The political Super Pac For Freedoms launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kick Starter to fund 52 billboards by major contemporary artists as a “get out to vote” initiative ahead of the 2018 mid-term elections. Listen in on their conversation as I think it might surprise the you where Eric and Ando stand regarding the project.

Death
A bit of change up on this episode of By The Way, as Eric and Ando talk about Sam Durant’s sculpture titled Scaffold. Originally created by Sam Durant for dOCUMENTA (13) in Kassel, Germany, the work has since been purchased by the Walker Art Center, USA. The story does not end there. We hope you listen to hear about why some people say ‘That's a killing machine.’ about the work.   If you enjoy our podcast please consider becoming a patreon and support us on our Patreon page.   For more By The Way, follow us on Twitter @ByTheWay_ArtPod, Facebook @By The Way: A Contemporary Art News Podcast, and Instagram @cultural_bandwidth.

A da Vinci & the Flaming Bag of Dog Poop
How could we not talk about this most recent Christie’s contemporary art auction? The record breaking painting "by" Leonardo da Vinci titled Salvator Mundi sold for $450,312,500. We aren’t talking about the obvious talking points, instead we go deeper into the painting’s history. It all plays out like Dan Brown novel. Yes, the guy who used to own Salvator Mundi was imprisoned in the 1990’s for contract killing of a rival. This episode's show notes are jam packed, so follow the links down the rabbit hole if you dare.   If you enjoy our podcast please consider becoming a patreon and support us on our Patreon page.    For more By The Way, follow us on Twitter @ByTheWay_ArtPod, Facebook @By The Way: A Contemporary Art News Podcast, and Instagram @cultural_bandwidth.
