Episode 04: #notallbillionaires

By Elena Gross August 18, 2017

Elena Gross is joined by other closet culture junkies and pop vivants. No detail is too banal and no subject too proud, or too base. Critically minded and unabashedly opinionated, every energetic discussion peels away the sticky layers of our media and visual culture.

In this episode, curator and writer Jackie Im joins me to talk about Jay Z, patronage, accessibility, and the intersections of the art market and contemporary hip hop. Jackie occupies the unique position of being both a gallerist and cofounder of Et. Al., in San Francisco, and a hip hop critic for the online music blog, Treble.

what are you looking at is produced by Eden Redmond.
