I’m featuring an insightful work from Image Journal‘s editor-in-chief James K.A. Smith on, among other things, the impact of the life’s work of Gego (Gertrud Goldschmidt) on display at the Guggenheim in 2023.

After you listen, you can find the link to the Image article, the art exhibit link, plus photos of Gego and her work on the substack page here ⬇️ :
