By Robyn Norris Casady and Alison Palevsky
Recorded in April of 2020 during the “stay at home” orders due to the Covid-19 virus outbreak, this episode contains some technical imperfections but also gives a glimpse into the realities of lockdown. Robyn and Alison join two female forces in the Miami art scene virtually via Zoom Conference. Curator, gallerist and talent incubator Nina Johnson of the eponymous Nina Johnson Gallery provides key insights into the past, present and future of the art world. Alexa Wolman, PAMM (Perez Art Museum Miami) trustee, art collector, former-attorney and entrepreneur shares her experiences as a transplant from Manhattan as well as her perspective on collecting some of Miami's most promising upcoming artists. Alexa and Nina formed a connection based on a mutual passion for art and a close friendship followed. The pair continues to explore the boundaries and dynamics of the gallerist and the patron while maintaining a genuine friendship.
