Join art writer Jori Finkel and artist Kim Schoenstadt for a joyful conversation about works in the online auction.
Jori Finkel is a journalist who covers art from the West Coast for The New York Times and The Art Newspaper. She lectures regularly at museums and art fairs and also appears on NPR, PBS and CNN broadcasts as part of her larger project of making contemporary art more accessible. In 2018 she developed and co-produced for KCET the Emmy-nominated documentary Artist and Mother. Her new book It Speaks to Me (Prestel) features 50 celebrated artists on artworks that inspire them from museums around the world.
Kim Schoenstadt is a Los Angeles-based artist. She is known for projects such as “Now Be Here,” which gathered close to 1,000 women-identifying and non-binary artists in Downtown L.A. for a historic photograph that visually showed the world artists who are not always included in exhibitions and collections. The project launched other “Now Be Here” activations across the country in Brooklyn, Miami and Washington, D.C. to significant media attention and critical acclaim. Schoenstadt’s work will be featured at the Fairview Heights Metro station on the Crenshaw/LAX line, which is set to open late this year. Born in Chicago with a B.A. from Pitzer College, California, her selected exhibitions include: Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford, CT; Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, NL; Perez Art Museum, Miami, FL; Santa Monica Museum of Art, CA; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; Prague Biennale; Poland Biennale, Lodz, PL; The Getty Center, Los Angeles; and the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London.
