Pilot Episode: The Venice Biennale
Welcome to the pilot episode of Momus: The Podcast. For our first broadcast, we focus on the historic Venice Biennale as the 57th edition opens to the public. We air a conversation on its history, institution, relevance, and potential, with insight arriving from a group of critics, curators, artists, and gallerists speaking to us from around the world. In this vibrant and myriad discussion, we question this event’s potential for political comment; its profile amid a “festivalist” biennial culture; its emphasis on nationalism; and the latest edition’s success.
Momus: The Podcast is edited and co-produced by Angela Shackel, and co-produced by Sky Goodden, Momus‘s founding publisher and editor. We’d like to thank our Assistant Producer, Mitra Shreeram; and our composer and music editor Kyle McCrea.
We are thrilled to announce that NTS radio hosts Momus: The Podcast.
Thanks to this amazing band of contributors and producers, we have our first piece of criticism – in conversation.
Momus thanks the Ontario Arts Council for their support of this pilot episode.
