Roger White is an artist, the co-creator and co-editor of the art journal Paper Monument, and authored the recent book, The Contemporaries: Travels in the 21st-Century Art World. Because White is both an artist and one who has delved widely and deeply into the art world, it provided the longest and one of the best episodes the podcast has had.

We discuss entering and exiting the art world with varying degrees of attention; the pros and cons of working for other artists; the challenges of creating alternate/regional art centers; the exhuming of vintage artist’s careers, and how in the future that may no longer be possible; and Roger weighs in on painting, why he does it, and attempts to argue for the irrelevance of its being relevant.
