In this week’s edition of the ArtTactic Podcast, we speak with Danny First, collector, artist and founder of The Cabin, a small exhibition space in his LA backyard, and La Brea Studio Artist Residency, an artist residency program in LA. First, Danny tells us about the process of an artist moving to LA for a month, living and working in the residency studio and ultimately having a show at The Cabin. Then, he discusses the importance and power of Instagram for discovering and connecting with artists to consider for his residency program. Also, Danny shares what motivated him to launch his residency and exhibition space as well as what distinguishes his from others in the art world. Lastly, Danny discusses some of the artists who have participated in his residency and exhibition space, such as Tschabalala Self, Devan Shimoyama and Amoako Boafo.
