Art curator and art historian Tierney Hamilton sat with me for a deep, silly, and possibly naughty episode that went to some very surprising places. We chat about the story of art in society, how that story is presented in museums both in the U.S. and abroad, the value of art in modern times, how our connection to it has changed in the last century or so, and the destruction of Palmyra by ISIS being a sign of the times. We also delve into Bay Area changes, the mysteries of porn (yep), then (naturally) plastic surgery, before we take a hard turn into political correctness, satire, dating and stories about making fools of ourselves. It's an eye opening look at art from the daily perspective, which has more value to us as creators every day.
This episode was such a blast to record and I hope to make more like it.
