Paddy Johnson, Founding Editor of ArtFCity
Paddy Johnson was fired from a number of galleries before founding Art Fag City in 2005. It was her way to participate in the art world while getting immediate feedback. When Facebook became a thing, Art Fag City became Art F City. Professionalism kicked in while she managed to retain a fresh and candid perspective. We talk about income inequality, valuing time, speaker fees, and the belief that art and artists can contribute greatly to communities. While talking about artist-run projects as a movement we talk cat boxes, microwaves, puppies, and new models.
