Samantha De Tillio is a curator, art historian, and writer of modern and contemporary art made from glass, fibers, clay, wood, and metals, and is committed to illuminating feminist histories and critically subverting the art historical canon. She is currently an assistant curator at The Museum of Art and Design in New York. Beth Lipman is a contemporary artist working in glass. She is best known for her glass still-life compositions which reference the work of 16th- and 17th-century European painters.
Samantha DeTilio and Beth Lipman are working together on Beth’s exhibition at the Museum of Art and Design, where Samantha is a curator. In this episode, you’ll hear the Samantha and Beth talk through the artist and curatorial process of creating an institutional exhibition. This discussion leads to an honest reflection and critique of each other’s practise and the ethics of producing resource heavy duty artworks that employ industrial techniques in a way that is sustainable and climate conscious.

Through these intimate conversations, ArtTable aims to share insights, strategies, and practical advice in public dialogue. The show offers a snapshot of the art world today, as well as the tools needed to produce meaningful work in an institution, gallery, public, or private setting. The results are a series of meaningful conversations spotlighting how women working in the art world advocate for one another.
