Andrew Russeth of ArtNews talks about: the business model of art agent/dealer Stefan Simchowitz generally, and the lawsuit between Simchowitz and one of his charges - Ghanaian artist Ibrahim Mahama - in particular; another of Simchowitz's former charges, Oscar Murillo, and his relative value or lack thereof; the painter Joe Bradley (who along with Murillo appeared in MoMA's Forever Now), and how his work has managed to hold up; 100-year-old abstract painter Carmen Herrera, an artist who best represents why Russeth loves his job; up-and-coming artists whom Russeth is taking note of, including Annicka Yi, Jared Madere and Josh Kline; the greatness of artist David Hammons; the 'asshole artist' schtick of Richard Prince, and how as a critic, Russeth vacillates between covering the underdogs and otherwise under-exposed artists, and those in the biggest arenas whom he feels warrant coverage, sometimes in order to counterbalance their badness; and his love of sweets, his Instagram -ing of them, and the similarity between enjoying art and sweets.

Brooklyn-based artist Ted Mineo talks about: his experience being courted by and then showing with Jeffrey Deitch for the last two years before Deitch Projects closed its doors; The Debutante’s Ball, the article in the New York Times that rather sensationally portrayed his forming artist persona and emergence into the New York art world; the day jobs he began working after leaving the gallery, including toy making and artist assisting; his experience as a young art teacher, sometimes younger than his students, and what type of personality and teaching styles he discovered worked best.
