Shownotes

Today’s Art World Horror Stories are a mixed bag of tragedies and disasters that serve as cautionary tales to empower artists to protect themselves and hope for the best while planning for the worst, because you never know what is going to happen! For example, David Alexander Willis shares the story of painter, Jason Shawn Alexander, who had a show at Booth Gallery in New York City where a forklift was driven through one of his paintings. Yikes! In this episode, we share more horror stories of assholes doing asshole-y things, stolen intellectual property, and even a real-life haunted art venue. The stories you’ll hear in today’s episode are not read by the artists involved, but by an AI avatar, introducing an added element of spookiness, so make sure to tune in and enjoy!

Key Points From This Episode:

  • Mikel Cirkus shares how Swatch Watches stole his intellectual property after a pitch.
  • The lesson in Micheal’s story: do not give away your ideas, sign contracts, protect yourself!
  • The horrifying comment that Diane Navarro received from a pretentious museum president.
  • How his comment about “living artists” damaged Diane’s art career.
  • Dan Monteavaro’s creepy tale of a haunted mural site in the old Howard Hughes Hangar.
  • Ally Zeleter on the scams artists face, from contests with crazy submission fees to inadequate pay from curators.
