Could Your Kid Do That?
Feb 16, 2021 Episode 38
Bianca and Gianna Martucci-Fink

This week,  we are asking the question “could your kid do that?” in the hopes of challenging the phrase... “my kid could do that.” Gianna offers her perspective as a museum educator as to why this comment persists within a misunderstood art world and how it can be detrimental when trying to foster creativity and artful engagement for our young people. We discuss the perpetuated stigma around this well-known comment when it comes to works from the ab-ex, dada, and minimalist movements and use this topic to critique the public’s suspicion behind North West’s landscape painting.
