William Garrett's ROOM TONE interview with art and music critic, curator and poet Peter Frank. As art critic for the Soho Weekly News, The Village Voice, The LA Weekly and The Huffington Post, he has covered the art world on both coasts and beyond and as a curator, mounted shows at the Guggenheim Museum, PS/1 and many other museums and galleries. In this conversation we discuss his unique path of learning that included his parents, schools, and even summer camp, a move to Los Angeles in the midst of disillusionment with the New York art scene, the value of cultural criticism and connecting the dots in the increasingly crowded digital universe.
