Christopher Knight on the Solace That Can Be Found in Art
From the Quarantine Tapes Podcast with Paul Holdengraber
Hosted by Paul Holdengräber, The Quarantine Tapes chronicles shifting paradigms in the age of social distancing. Each day, Paul calls a guest for a brief discussion about how they are experiencing the global pandemic.
Today on episode 58 of The Quarantine Tapes, Paul Holdengräber is joined by Pulitzer Prize-winning art critic Christopher Knight. They examine current funding models for museums and the inherent inequities which have been made particularly visible during this pandemic. Paul and Christopher also discuss the ways in which Covid-19 has forced us all to become more conscious when interacting with others out in the world.
