This week on Geek Girl Riot we get into The Art Episode—talking all things creativity with Fantastic Forum. Then Finding You stars Rose Reid and Jedidiah Goodacre drop in along with writer/director Brian Baugh to get you ready to see the new film.
The Art Episode
We’ve teamed up with our pals at Fantastic Forum to bring you The Art Episode. FF host Ulysses Campbell, Sherin, Julian, and Roberto Ortiz chat about ART. The discussion begins with the mental health concerns of creative people and how artists see the world. Those topics feed into how comic book art often objectifies women and sets unrealistic expectations for every gender. Which leads into the internet firestorm over an artist’s redrawing of a J. Scott Campbell’s cover—and the difference between critiquing, remixing, and “fixing” someone else’s work.
Our hosts then discuss Koons, Warhol, Lichtenstein, the way Yayoi Kusama got pickpocketed by male artists, and inspiration vs. stealing. Followed by: When art is released into the world, is it still owned by the artist or does it become the property of the masses? (spoiler: It still belongs to the artist but it’s complicated.) They also talk about how art is (or isn’t) valued by the public and how NFTs and digital art are transforming the way we consume art.
Finding You with Rose Reid, Jedidiah Goodacre, and Brian Baugh
