Unraveling podcast with Gerald A. Brown

By Gerald Brown
Building off my studio and curatorial practice, Unraveling podcast is a platform to think through the complexities of art, while using readily available resources to unpack complicated ideas related to life. With the help of friends and special guests, each episode will use ceramics, music, books, pop culture and any other source material as springboards to explore topics about identity, culture, fears and ambitions. This show is for everyone, a freshman BFA student, a local high school teacher or your grandma! Let's unravel these ideas together.
