Edward Goldman

Host, Art Talk

Since 1988, Edward Goldman has been the host of KCRW's weekly art review, Art Talk. Both fearless and fun, Edward offers a unique "accent" on art. Formerly employed by the famed Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, and a favorite on-air presence, he offers impassioned views on what he sees in the galleries and museums and at events throughout the world, and he isn't afraid to "speak truth to power."

From 1998-1999, Goldman served as Arts and Culture Editor for Life & Times Tonight on KCET, the LA-based public television station.

In 2005, he began teaching a seminar on art collecting at Otis College of Art and Design. Due to popular demand, that seminar evolved into an ongoing series Goldman calls his "art gypsy caravan." The New York Times featured his class in an article titled The (Art) World According to Edward Goldman (March 28, 2007).  More recently, Private Eye: Edward Goldman was featured in Artillery Magazine. (July, 2014)

Goldman also contributes articles to numerous art publications, including a weekly Huffington Post feature based on his radio reviews and recommendations, and serves as a panelist, moderator and speaker for various museums and arts organizations.

An essay by Edward Goldman was published in The Beat and the Buzz: Inside the L.A. Art World, edited by Richard Hertz (Ojai, California: Minneola Press: 2009)
