Talking art, religion, and changing public perceptions with Sara Meghdari - with a little Westworld and Luke Cage thrown in | The Fearless Show | Podcasts | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Talking art, religion, and changing public perceptions with Sara Meghdari – with a little Westworld and Luke Cage thrown in

We're back and with special guest and artist/photographer/videographer Sara Meghdari (@szmeghdari). We discuss the difficulties of being a photographer in NYC, her first live public performance, which showed the very private act of covering and putting on her hijab, and recent art shows around the city. We continue with art news such as more interactive art exhibits popping up across the country, scents and smells being incorporated into exhibits and museums as it's own art form and to enhance or change the way we perceive art, and the world's first cryptocurrency art auction taking place. Then we close things out talking about Seasons 2 of 'Westworld' and 'Luke Cage', and the underappreciated 'Queen of the South.'...
Music Pairing: A Walk Through British Art | Features | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Music Pairing: A Walk Through British Art

'Walk Through British Art', the permanent exhibition at London’s Tate Britain, is also a walk through British music. From Elizabeth I to Stephen Lawrence, adding music allowed me to connect with artworks that may have otherwise felt distant. Music pours silently from the paintings in this collection, and I found reuniting these different forms of artistic expression to be a thrilling experience....

On this week's show we have special guest Miha Pavel (@familiarspot), from the Sacramento area, on to talk about his journey through photography over the years, his Romanian roots and its influence on his music, as well as his thoughts on the role of social media and emerging technologies, i.e. smart phones, in the field of photography as a whole.

What Do You See?: What the Loss of NEA Funding May Mean for Access to the Arts | Features | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

What Do You See?: What the Loss of NEA Funding May Mean for Access to the Arts

Today, the National Endowment for the Arts is constantly being put on the chopping block when it comes to federal funding but it's not just about the artists. It’s about those that benefit from funding to the arts. If admission prices rise, that accessibility will become more and more difficult to justify financially and less people will be able to view the great works of artists past and present....

We must cultivate our garden; how to support the artists you love

Artists have always faced an uphill battle, but new obstacles are being thrown in their way. Emerging technologies have been both a gift and a curse. Over the past decade, artists have grappled with historic levels of economic uncertainty and discord and federal funding for the arts is under attack. In the end, if we’re going to ensure that the arts we love thrive, we’re going to have to do it ourselves....
Cautious optimism for Black Panther, untraining your creative mind, and the themes of body perception and mental conditioning in Marvin Touré's art work | Podcasts | The Fearless Show | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Cautious optimism for Black Panther, untraining your creative mind, and the themes of Marvin Touré’s art work

Shit gets real in this episode as we speak to Marvin Touré about his upcoming art work, the influences of his West African heritage and being a first-generation immigrant, and his cautious optimism about Marvel's upcoming Black Panther film. We also dive deep into an artist's struggle to convey his own life and perspective while still leaving room for interpretation from a larger audience, untraining your mind after years of traditional schooling, the themes of the racial undertones of body perception, mental conditioning, and the mentality towards art in West Africa compared to the traditional Western context. Needless to say we dive deep....
Music Pairing: Classic Art and Contemporary Music | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Music Pairing: Classic Art and Contemporary Music

The extent to which aspects of both classic art and contemporary music took on different meanings when paired together amazed me. The withdrawn looks of the subjects became coy and knowing when I wondered what secrets they would reveal “if these walls could talk”, Haim’s defiant anthem of “baby, don’t save me” became the voice of women in French high society, and Nina Simone’s simple lament felt inspired by the Avenue de Chantilly. Where the more traditional music pairings became incidental, the contemporary pieces were in dialogue with the paintings, both resisting and conforming to the tone suggested by the music....
