LISTEN TO THIS: "Hemingway's Picasso"

Tue, 19 Oct 2021
Hi ArtCurious listeners! I’m dropping a little preview of a new podcast that I think you’re going to love. It’s called “Hemingway’s Picasso,” and it’s a really fun story, all about Steven Kough.
Steven Kough lived many lives—including some that you just wouldn’t believe. He was an NFL journeyman, a male model, and one of the most well-connected smugglers in 1980’s Miami, the “Drug Capital of the World.” He collected many souvenirs from his adventures, but his most treasured bounty was a beautiful ceramic, created by Pablo Picasso and gifted to none other than Ernest Hemingway at the author’s Cuban home... or so the story goes. Lost during the Cuban Revolution, the artwork resurfaced when Kough took it as a payment for a drug run financed by the notorious Pablo Escobar.
Kough passed away in 2018, passing the ceramic down to his son, Stevie, a skateboarding hippie growing weed in California. Stevie feels he needs to complete his father’s mission – of selling this piece and telling Steve’s cinematic life story. But a big question remains: is the Picasso authentic—or a fraud? Was Steve Kough a big talker or a real deal smuggler? And do any of these questions ultimately matter? This is a great story you won’t want to miss: a globe-trotting tale of aspiration, legacy, and difficult love. So enjoy this clip today, and listen to new episodes of Hemingway’s Picasso every Monday wherever you get your podcasts!

Episode #84: Art Fact and Fiction: Is "Mona Lisa" Really Leonardo in Drag? (S10E01)

Mon, 11 Oct 2021
In our tenth season, we’re going at art history with a skeptical eye and a myth-busting attitude to uncover the fictions and facts about some of our favorite artists. We’re starting our season today with this fascinating theory: Is the Mona Lisa really just a portrait of Leonardo da Vinci in drag?

CURIOUS CALLBACK: Episode #17: The Casino of the Spirits

Mon, 27 Sep 2021
Venice-- it's the most serene and beautiful city in Italy, and possibly the whole world. But Venice at night-- all darkened and quiet-- takes up the most space in my imagination. I seriously love the depictions of Venice as enigmatic, shadowy, and even dangerous. All of this lends Venice this air of inscrutability and mystery. And over time, locals and visitors alike have reveled in this sensation as fodder for myth-making and storytelling. Some stories really stick, lasting for centuries and becoming embedded into the city itself, through its buildings, monuments, and specific locations. And there’s one building that has had plenty of legends built around it. This particular elegant structure had an illustrious past, having once been a meeting place where Italian Renaissance artists discussed their craft, caroused, and gambled. But it’s also the location where relationships soured, crimes were committed, and death inevitably followed. Today, some people won’t even enter this particular building because it is feared to be haunted, cursed… or both.
Today we're calling back to an episode of the first season of ArtCurious to talk about another potentially cursed locale in Venice, Italy: the so-called Casino of the Spirits.
