In the "Real Art World Episodes," I explore the awkward social interaction of the studio visit. Before a work of art is chosen for exhibition, gallerists or curators visit the artist's studio to meet the artist and see the work in person. Consequentially, the artist must convince the visitor of the value of their work. Like a confidence game or a first date, the power dynamics of the studio visit are wrought with miscommunication and ego clashes.
