Anna Johnson and the FAR Beyond

Welcome SOTA listeners! This week, Sarah interviewed Twin Cities artist, Anna Johnson who works in puppetry and music. Jasa brings to the table a folk art installation from the FAR beyond. Many adventures were had. In the news, we discuss the recent appointment of Klaus Biesenbach as director of MOCA in LA despite being involved in a legal case where a curator was revoked a job offer at his previous institution, MoMA PS1 after she let it be known that she had recently had a child.

There is lots to love in this episode so, don’t miss out!

And as always, music provided by the infallible The Von Tramps!
