New York video & animation artist Adam Shecter talks about:

His job history after moving to New York (from school in Montreal at McGill University), including being a receptionist and a creator of visual internals among other gigs; his animation videos, including his relatively epic New Year, and how he anticipates viewers will take it in in a gallery (vs. film) context; how he came to show with the Lower East Side gallery 11R (formerly Eleven Rivington); and why he values having a full-time job (as an arts technology teacher at an all-boys' school) over being a full-time artist, as it gives him the time and freedom to make what he wants to make at the pace he wants to make it.

Brooklyn-based artist Colleen Asper talks about:

Her short-lived fight against a rogue landlord and subsequently learning about renter's rights; her experience with Occupy Wall Street and other activist groups, and the surprisingly regressive anti-feminist attitudes she experienced there as well as in academia; her teaching experiences and wisdom learned at art schools including Massachusetts College of Art and Design and Yale (among the 14 schools she's now taught at); and how her training in ballet has more recently translated into her painting, and her explanation of why dance in contemporary art has become something of a trend.

her being a long-time Angeleno, yet still feeling (more) at home in New York, where she grew up; her 30-plus-year career teaching at Cal State Fullerton; her epic 'studio visit' experience, which are combined into her video of the same name; how her work has been received in L.A.compared with New York (it depends on the decade); her upcoming project for the MLK Jr. Metro in Los Angeles; and, in a special bonus segment, she talks about the differences between the "ART World" and the "Real World," and how embracing what she had led to good things happening for her.

Andrew Russeth of ArtNews talks about: the business model of art agent/dealer Stefan Simchowitz generally, and the lawsuit between Simchowitz and one of his charges - Ghanaian artist Ibrahim Mahama - in particular; another of Simchowitz's former charges, Oscar Murillo, and his relative value or lack thereof; the painter Joe Bradley (who along with Murillo appeared in MoMA's Forever Now), and how his work has managed to hold up; 100-year-old abstract painter Carmen Herrera, an artist who best represents why Russeth loves his job; up-and-coming artists whom Russeth is taking note of, including Annicka Yi, Jared Madere and Josh Kline; the greatness of artist David Hammons; the 'asshole artist' schtick of Richard Prince, and how as a critic, Russeth vacillates between covering the underdogs and otherwise under-exposed artists, and those in the biggest arenas whom he feels warrant coverage, sometimes in order to counterbalance their badness; and his love of sweets, his Instagram -ing of them, and the similarity between enjoying art and sweets.
