The Easel

Doing the Work: Carolina A. Miranda and Siddhartha Mitter in Conversation

A writer’s perspective on the art market and art criticism. Art fairs – “I just don’t think an art fair is a story.” The art market – “[combines] a speculative finance market as well as the traits of books and music”. The loss of small newspapers “What the alt weeklies did was community-building accountability journalism”. The internet – “has allowed this flood of new voices … I love the internet”.
