Topics Discussed In This Episode:

  • The next generation of galleries
  • Pop-up gallery experiences
  • Making art more accessible
  • Unit London was started with the approach of identifying 3 problems in the art world and a need to change these problems: art being exclusive and elitist, certain deserving artists not being celebrated, artists not having social recognition and relevancy.
  • Defining your "why" and your "story"
  • The importance of starting a business that connects with their audience on an emotional level
