In this week’s episode of the ArtTactic Podcast, we chat with Baiqu Gonkar.
Baiqu Gonkar is the founder of Art Represent. Art Represent is a commercial platform conceived to promote, sell and exhibit artworks by artists impacted by conflict and social upheaval.
First, Baiqu shares how Art Represent aids artists who are affected by conflict. Then, she describes the commonality she witnesses across the artists with which she has worked. This both in terms of how their art helped them survive and ultimately flee these conflicts. Also, Baiqu discusses how an art scene is transformed when conflict infects a region.
