Episode 52

Our 3 unexpected lessons from a modern art museum visit /52

As of July 2023, we won't be posting new episodes but you can connect with Bec & Michele and continue the conversation via the links below.


Bec and Michele chat about their recent visit to the National Gallery of Victoria—which was extra special because it’s the first time they’ve met face-to-face! Meeting outside a busy Melbourne city train station was a bit overwhelming for a pair of introverts but after a cup of green tea (for the Australian) and a coffee (for the American), they were able to enjoy the modern art on display and dive into some juicy and surprising conversations.

Unfortunately the plan to record on-the-day didn’t work out, but the insights were still fresh for this session a few days later. They talk about imperfect art, surprising materials and surrendering to what wants to be made.
