Phillips Launches Art [email protected]


A New Video and Podcast Series Hosted by Arnold Lehman, Featuring One-on-One Conversations with Artists, Gallerists, Curators, Collectors, and other Art World Friends  





NEW YORK – 28 APRIL 2020 – Phillips is pleased to announce ART [email protected], a digital adaptation of the ART MATTERS live and live-streamed discussions in which Arnold Lehman, Phillips’ Senior Advisor and Director Emeritus of the Brooklyn Museum, will talk informally with artists, gallerists, museum directors and curators, collectors, and critics from their studios or homes. The series debuts at 12:00pm EST on 28 April 2020 with a conversation with the New York-based artist Deborah Kass.  Set to continue weekly on Tuesdays at noon EST for 20 weeks through the spring and summer, the thirty-minute personal and unscripted episodes will feature Lehman in conversation with many well-known art world friends,  such as renowned artists Ai Weiwei and Judy Chicago and graffiti legend Lee Quiñones; film producer and Andy Warhol protege Vincent Fremont; Metropolitan Museum President and CEO Daniel Weiss; gallerist Marianne Boesky; and Phillips’ CEO Edward Dolman, among many others to be announced.  Videos will be published weekly starting Tuesday, 28 April at 12:00pm EST via Facebook and podcasts will be available on and via most podcast streaming platforms.


Arnold Lehman said, “Phillips has always been engaged with our art world community in new and unique ways. Arising out of our physically and socially distanced environment in which we are all currently trying to interact, ART [email protected] offers our audience possible insights into the personalities, ideas, work and opinions of a variety of art world figures. Everyone I will be speaking with is a friend and the idea of this program is not so much of an interview but rather a relaxed chat over a cup of coffee, or tea, or vodka!! While our live ART MATTERS panel discussions and interviews were focused on significant historical or contemporary art world issues, ART [email protected] is less about the many important things my guests have done, but rather more about what they might do that afternoon.”
