Miguel Discusses Art, Consumerism, and Globalization in Noisey’s “Forced Exposure”



Noisey, VICE’s music and culture channel, debuts the latest episode of its brand-new series, “Forced Exposure,” which takes musicians to meet other artists from a completely different medium. In the newest installment of the series, Noisey pairs R&B maverick, Miguel, with Toronto visual artist Connor Olthuis to discuss his latest exhibition, ‘510,072,000 km2, Give or Take.’

Connor takes Miguel through his latest work, and the two chat about everything from globalization, the rise of the manicured lawn as a symbol of wealth, and even the hideous men’s shoes that are common in formal work environments. Miguel flexes his muscles as an art critic, leading Connor to comment at the end of the episode, “Miguel as an art critic, he definitely impressed me… he got some of the key ideas and thought beyond that.”
