In this episode of Bad at Sports, Daniel Tucker travels to Seoul, South Korea, to attend the Arts in Society conference 2024, where he sits down with two influential figures in the global arts community.

Solana Chehtman, a New York-based cultural producer and curator originally from Buenos Aires, joins Daniel as a plenary speaker at the conference. Solana is currently the Director of Artist Programs at Joan Mitchell Foundation, where she focuses on supporting visual artists through unrestricted funding and career development opportunities. Her commitment to equity in the arts has shaped her roles as the inaugural Director of Creative Practice and Social Impact at The Shed and Vice President of Public Engagement at Friends of the High Line. Solana’s extensive experience includes teaching at the MA in Arts Administration at Baruch College and collaborating with organizations such as Artadia and Creative Capital.

Jaeyong Park, a curator, writer, and translator based in Seoul, shares insights from his work at the Seoul Reading Room and as an organizer at Curating School Seoul. Jaeyong co-founded Work on Work and has curated numerous impactful projects, including “HIT and RUN” and “The Ideological Guide to Venice Biennale.” His individual projects, such as “TOTAL RECALL” and “Center for Selfie Studies,” explore themes of technology, connectivity, and social context in art. As a researcher, Jaeyong delves into structural changes in the art system in Korea and Asia, emphasizing the intersection of art and society.

Join Daniel Tucker as he engages Solana Chehtman and Jaeyong Park in a conversation that delves into their experiences, perspectives, and the evolving landscape of arts and culture on a global scale.
