This week, we take a break from our regularly scheduled programming to bring you the first edition of The Artsy Podcast Extra: on-the-ground coverage of art world events across the globe. In this show, Deputy Editor Alexander Forbes reports from the 2016 editions of Frieze London
and Frieze Masters
. Has Brexit dampened the mood—and the sales—at these London art fairs? Is an uncertain economic climate actually good news for historically underrepresented artists, particularly women
? And can looking back at the ’90s tell us something about the future of the art market?
This podcast is hosted by Artsy Editorial Associate Isaac Kaplan, joined for this edition by Deputy Editor Alexander Forbes. It was produced by Editorial Associate Abigail Cain.
Intro music: “Something Elated” by Broke For Free
