KONST: Post pandemic art viewing trends and the difference between art and journalism (with Destinee Ross-Sutton and Michael Elmenbeck)

Season 1, Ep. 1

In today’s episode:

  • Michel Elmenbeck, joins as co-host. He is the founder of CFHILL Art Space and Bon Magazine, a renowned art advisor, collector and trend expert.
  • OVRs (online viewing rooms); all major auction houses, art trade fairs and blue chip galleries seem to take away the option to view art online. What are the implications?
  • NFTs and artist estates; what role will digitalisation of art and assets play for the future of artists and also dead artists’ estates? 
  • Special guest: Destinee Ross-Sutton, International Curator, Artist Advocate, Art Advisor, and Gallerist.

Independently, she advises several private institutions and international collectors with an emphasis on responsible acquisitions of contemporary art. With a focus on African and African American art and a commitment to cohesive storytelling, Ms. Ross-Sutton has repeatedly demonstrated her ability to unify diverse subjects and styles within her curatorial projects. She is also making a name for herself as being a curator that discovers new talents and starting artist’s international careers. As artist manager, she acts as steward, guiding artists careers to fruition and to take control of their markets. See more on her website!

This episode was recorded Feb 22, prior to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
