Welcome to the Art Angle, a podcast from Artnet News that delves into the places where the art world meets the real world, bringing each week’s biggest story down to earth. Join host Andrew Goldstein every week for an in-depth look at what matters most in museums, the art market, and much more with input from our own writers and editors as well as artists, curators, and other top experts in the field.
Ok, we’re just going to cut to the chase. This episode is going to be devoted to Hunter Biden.
If you read the news, click on any link, switch on any cable network or walk down the street, you’ve probably heard that everybody is in a tizzy about the son of the United States president, his blossoming art career, and overnight emergence as a seemingly unlikely market darling.
Over at Artnet News, we have a bevy of crack reporters on the story, from art detective Katya Kazakina, who spoke to Biden about his newfound painterly passion, to senior business reporter Tim Schneider, who’s got a lot to say about the reported White House ethics agreement Biden and his gallery have entered into, and finally to Ben Davis, who has been a guest on multiple news segments to discuss what he thinks of Biden’s work as an art critic.
This week, we’re welcoming all three reporters on the show to help suss out the art story of the year.
