For this episode, we reunite several members of the late Michael Asher's Post-Studio seminar class, as portrayed in the 2nd chapter of Seven Days in the Art World under the title, "The Crit," which took place in the fall of 2004.
Fiona Jack, now back in New Zealand and one of the students presenting work that day, is the first part of the episode, followed by a group conversation with Josh Stone (another of the three students who presented), Julie Orser, Phil Chang, and, by phone from Brooklyn, Nate Harrison.

The Conversation revolves around both the influence and legacy of Michael Asher through the class, and what it was like being involved in these marathon crit sessions, in which an individual crit could go for five hours, while a day with three students presenting typically went from morning until midnight and sometimes later.

Liat Yossifor along w/co-host Jen Collins talks about: her recent solo show in New York; her big Hollywood studio that sometimes is the only thing studio visitors want to talk about; her uneasy relationship aligning herself with fellow abstractionists; and two women artists she admires - Charlotte Posenenske and Lee Lozano - who left the art world altogether.

Art world ethnographer, author, and art writer for The Economist Sarah Thornton talks about memorable moments from her research and reporting, involving some big art world names (as guided by the host).
She addresses questions about transitioning from art world outsider to insider, how she came to choose the artists she chose, how she structured her books, and how the massively ambitious task of completing her most recent book -- 33 Artists in 3 Acts -- has left her exhausted and still regaining her feet.

An especially fun conversation with the Times' David Pagel, in which he talks with us about: the relative influence of the L.A. Times stamp of approval as an art review; the correspondences and relations with those he's reviewed; the value and relevance of really going after an artist critically in a review, as opposed to positive reviews; the trouble with the appropriation and use of the words "curating," "practice" and "criticality;" any conflicts of interest he may face as a critic; and his experiences as a teacher at Claremont, and the inhabiting the various roles of art critic, professor, and curator.

New York artist William Powhida talks about: his transition from writing about artists to making work about artists and the art world; his minor art celebrity; the Miami art fair scene, and what it's like being an artist who does Miami; his installation at Marlborough Gallery in which he created the character of "Powhida," his alter ego who ruled over the show...and which made up all of the 'work' in the show.
