Ep. 217 Screaming Art
"Suddenly the sky turned blood red – I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence – there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city – my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety – and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature" This is Edvard Munch on his famous painting "The Scream". On this week's show we talk about this painting with one of our favorite guests, nay favorite people, Dr. Dan Siedell. As always, he brings his soothing voice and engaging personality and encyclopedic knowledge to talk about art to those of us who might know nothing about it.
Dan has been a guest on a number of shows (check them out here and here) and always brings his A game. Dan was in town and when he's around we make sure to grab him. On this episode he talks about experiencing art when you think you have no idea how to do it. Dan is always down to talk about what he is up to, what's happening in culture, and drop the kind of knowledge that makes us want to run to the nearest museum. For this show, Dan had just flown in and so you are hearing a true "hit record" show. We talk La La Land (which all three of us saw), Impressionist art, and Mark Maron. We skip around at a lively pace, what else would you expect? Check out the links below!
