Today on Fresh Art International, live at Untitled, Miami Beach, Cathy Byrd invites Baltimore-based painter Amy Sherald to join in conversation about her portrait of First Lady Michelle Obama for the National Portrait Gallery and her work featured in Fictions at New York’s Studio Museum through January 2018. Sherald is represented by Untitled, Miami Beach exhibitor moniquemeloche and will present a solo exhibition at Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis, MO in 2018.
Launched in 2011 from a park bench in Brooklyn, Fresh Art International has evolved from an audio podcast into a weekly live streaming radio show. In each episode, independent curator Cathy Byrd sparks conversations with contemporary artists, curators, filmmakers and architects that illustrate the significant role of creativity in the world today. Fresh Art International is an evolving open source archive of contemporary art history in the making.
