Join us an incredible episode of the Art & Cocktails podcast with Jerry Saltz.

Jerry Saltz is an American Art Critic. Since 2006, he has been Senior Art Critic and Columnist for New York Magazine. Formerly the senior art critic for The Village Voice, he received the Pulitzer Prize for Criticism in 2018 and was nominated for the award in 2001 and 2006.

In this episode, Jerry Saltz discusses his new book and talks about the future of the art world with host Ekaterina Popova.

Jerry talks about how his family is handling the lockdown and shares his thoughts about this pandemic and what it means for artists.

"The easiest thing in the world to do is not to work. What I want you to do is to do the hard thing, which is to do a little bit of work. There are no wasted days. You have to accept that the minute you start working there's a hundred percent chance that two things are gonna happen: you're going to be embarrassed, and you'll start to get lost."

Jerry also reminds us to fight envy that may lead to cynicism, and cynicism may destroy your creativity.
