How to Pronounce Artists' Names, Vol. 5: Greater New York, Frieze London, Oh My Edition
The artist Jamian Juliano-Villani (photo via Art21)

It's the question no one wants to ask: How do I pronounce [fill-in-the-blank-artist]'s name? But the alternative—butchering that artist's name in conversation with a dealer, curator, or, worse, the actual artist—is just as unthinkable. Luckily, we have a solution! Just consult our handy guide to artists you're likely to encounter at Frieze London and MoMA PS1's Greater New York, which covers both the names you don't know yet (Tamuna Sirbiladze) and also the ones you think you do (ahem, Gerhard Richter).
