For more than 20 years, Edward Goldman has been art critic and host of “Art Talk,” a weekly program which airs prime-time Tuesday evenings during All Things Considered on LA’s largest NPR affiliate, KCRW 89.9 FM. Edward also contributes weekly art reports to the Huffington Post
Both fearless and fun, Edward is a favorite on-air presence, offering a unique “accent” on art. Born and educated in Russia and formerly employed by the famed Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, he offers impassioned views on what he sees in galleries and museums and at cultural events throughout the world, and he is not afraid to “speak truth to power.”
In 1998-1999, Edward appeared regularly as a commentator for the weekly TV program “Life & Times Tonight” on the LA Public Broadcasting Station KCET, where he served as the Arts and Culture Editor.
In 2005, Edward began leading a seminar on art collecting at Otis College of Art and Design. The seminar became so popular that Edward launched his own regular series of classes,”The Fine Art of Art Collecting.” through these classes, participants have privileged access to artist studios, private collectors’ homes, art galleries, and museum exhibitions, where they engage in informal, spirited conversations about art and culture. In 2007, The New York Times published an article about these seminars, “The (Art) World According to Edward Goldman.”
Edward has also written reviews for numerous art publications and served as a panelist, moderator and speaker for various museums and arts organizations.
