The Great God Pan is Dead‘s Robert Boyd joins me to talk about art fairs! What’s the point of them? Who are they really for? And why does Houston have two separate fairs a mere two weeks apart? Robert also shares a lot of his photos from his visits to New York for Frieze in addition to the two local fairs.  Yes, I know it’s an audio podcast, but don’t worry – you too can see the photos using the links provided!
