Momus: The Podcast


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.

Our pilot contributors include Morgan Quaintance, Andrew Berardini, Kimberlee Córdova, Saelan Twerdy, Sandra Paikowsky, Catherine G. Wagley, Alison HugillMitch Speed, and your host, Sky Goodden.

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.
