I was honored to be featured in the first week of September in Art Talks podcast #32 of Cerebral Women! The series, hosted by Phyllis Hollis, an art enthusiast and proactive trustee of numerous institutions, is passionate about supporting and promoting Black Artists, Artists of Color, and women in the art world. Other artists and art world figures who have been featured include Carrie Mae Weems, Derrick Adams, Odili Donald Odita, Pauline Willis, and M. Florine Démosthène. As host and founder, Phyllis established Cerebral Women as a platform presenting works of art and aphorisms to provoke visual and intellectual stimulation.
Hollis’ provocative and intelligent questions matched with her mellifluous voice makes listening to the podcasts of artists like Weems, Adams, Odita, and others with a glass of wine a splendid opportunity while we shelter at home.
My podcast episode focuses on my amazing career as an art lawyer and provides useful insights to artists on significant copyright cases I litigated as well as artist-gallery relations and other important subjects of interest for artists as they navigate the ever more complex art world, particularly during COVID-19.
