Join us in an exploration of the diverse movements, artists, approaches, and mediums that have shaped the "state of art" as we know it today. Each month we select a theme and dive into its role in the arts and how diverse factions of the art world have addressed and/or been influenced by the topic of choice.
Julia Kaganskiy, Director of New Museum’s multidisciplinary development program, NEW INC, has had a fascinating journey into the world of art and tech with a number of amazing stops along the way. Her ambitions led her from a childhood dream of becoming an arts and culture editor, to a dream job that unifies all her interests in one melting pot bubbling with creative thinkers and innovators. In this episode, Julia shares how experiences as diverse as heading VICE's Creators Project to transforming the landscape of Coachella (before art was a given there), perfectly positioned her at the intersection of art and tech and informed her leadership at NEW INC.
Julia also delves into the value of creative thinking in tech, what artists bring to the table as divergent thinkers, and how NEW INC is putting the training artists receive to use in innovative ways outside of the traditional artist studio.
