The Pinterestization of Art with John Criscitello
This week the Mort Gang is joined by legendary artist, punk angel, queer agitator, trash guru, and babe John Criscitello to discuss artistic practice in the digital age, the role of commerce in art, how goofy the concept of "selling out" is, the operatic, American tragedy of Anna Nicole Smith, why we'll never stop building more bullshit for rich kids, getting over in a post-gentrification landscape, and a bunch of other stuff. This is easily one of my favorite episodes we've done, even though there's a point where Matt's fuckin breathing really makes me want to set myself on fire. John's show In Code opens at 4 Culture gallery September 7th 2017 from 6-8pm, and will be up until the 28th. GO SEE IT! This week's breaks are "Tramma Nella Metropoli" by I Marc 4, and "Sortilegio Titoli" by Silvanio D'Auria. Buy John's fuckin rad stuff at http://jcriscitellostudio.bigcartel.com Subscribe to Mortville!
