‘Intersections: The Art Basel Podcast’, presented by UBS, brings together leading artists, architects, gallerists, designers, musicians, and collectors to dive deep into their passion for art. Intersections is hosted by Marc Spiegler, who covered the art world for fifteen years as a journalist before becoming global director of Art Basel. New episodes are released every two weeks.
Lisa Spellman first arrived in New York to study art at SVA, moving into a loft that seemed pre-destined to be a gallery. Kim Gordon was reading about the art happening in New York while she was in LA, but when she got to the East Coast, ended up playing music. A few years later, Spellman founded 303 Gallery and Gordon was writing and playing with iconic band Sonic Youth. The two talk to Marc Spiegler about New York City in the 1980s and 1980s, the art scene and the music scene, the places they all went, and how it all intersected. It’s an image of an old New York that still reverberates in the city today.
