Episode 687: Michael Rakowitz and the Whitney


In this episode we welcome back three long lost friends. We pull Richard Holland and Christian Kuras out of retirement to speak deeply and profoundly about the complexities of museum funding. We visit the studio of Michael Rakowitz to talk about what it’s like to be considered for the Whitney biennial and to choose not to participate. Then to have that choice forced to become a public act and to find the people wanting for a conversation about the future of our museums.
