175: Very Little Time For the Present

September 1, 2015 at 10:45AM • 1 hour 21 minutes • Wiki Entry

This week, we unpack some of the challenges around deciding that something is not art, just because you don’t agree with it or understand it. Does making art an “ism” stifle growth and innovation? Also, long before drones surveilled us, there were...pigeons? Plus, a tease of next week’s show, where we will be talking about what some believe to be the future of photography. Ilse Bing is our Photographer of the Week.
