Gideon Jacobs In Conversation with Artist, Daniel Horowitz & Tribal Art Expert, Alan Steele
Alan Steele Fine Tribal Art is a private dealership specializing in important masterworks of art from tribal and ancient cultures. Covering the regions of Africa, the Americas, Asia, Indonesia, and Oceana, the artifacts—such as masks, sculptures, architectural elements, ritual objects, and weapons— are offered to discerning collectors and to public institutions, and are selected for their rarity and distinctive aesthetic quality.
Gideon Jacobs grew up a professional actor in New York City, but eventually left that business behind to pursue his career as a writer and artist. From 2011-2015, he worked at the legendary photo cooperative Magnum Photos, where he was eventually named Creative Director. These days he is a columnist for VICE, and contributor to The Paris Review, The New Yorker, It's Nice That, BOMB, HyperAllergic and others. When not working on editorial writing, he creates social art projects such as CONFESSION -- a phone line that brings the old practice of Catholic confession into a modern context -- and InstaRoadTrip2016 -- a 1 month fake journey he made across the USA using only photos he found on Instagram and passed off as his own.
