Unpaid Labor in the Arts and an interview with Christopher Selleck

Hello SOTA listeners! We are excited to bring you our first episode of 2019! We are beginning to implement a lot of changes and improvements starting this new year. We hope you enjoy some of our experiments and as always, enjoy the content as we bring word on our local arts community!

This week in the news, we discuss the government shut down and how it affects workers in the arts. Last week, workers officially starting missing their paychecks and many museum remain closed. We also scarped the surface on unpaid labor in the arts, an issue that perpetually plagues the art world. Finally, we bring you an interview with Christopher Selleck, who you may remember from our episode where we reviewed his exhibition This is a Record!

Thank you for tuning in, SOTAns! We are so delighted to be with you in the new year!
