Platemark is a podcast about art and ideas. Hosted by Ann Shafer and Ben Levy, formerly colleagues at the Baltimore Museum of Art, conversations focus on museums, curating, critiques, value (market/conceptual), the Western canon, and prints and printmaking.
Ann and Ben discuss the ballet that occurs in the printshop when
the team is editioning a print. Everything is planned. Jigs are
made. Everyone has their role. When it's running smoothly, it's
sublime. Also, it's hard work.
