The Death of Meaning
In which our hosts discuss severed hands that never belonged to their owners, Jonathan's daughter's singing talent, Brad Troemel as the anti-Jerry Saltz, why galleries need to be better capitalized and buy their artists' works (or any artists' works), the fact that artists who have built ATM careers (minting money in the studio) need to step up in the current crisis, and museums need to sell some art to backstop the humanity that is more important than the stuff they house.

The Death of Meaning
