This episode is one for the [art] history books. Sit back and relax as you listen to Dana and Duncan get schooled by the greatest living painter to ever grace this lowly little podcast, an artist who literally needs zero introduction, Alex Katz. We discuss the brand new paintings in his recently opened exhibition, Grass and TreesAlex’s interest in “fancy painting,” and how one develops style and technique in their work. Our hosts even get a much-needed lesson on fashion in this episode of Bad at Sports. 

 

Alex Katz’s Grass and Trees is on view at the Richard Gray Gallery Warehouse through June 2, 2018

Bad at Sports Episode 620: Karsten Lund

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 15:38:56 +0000

(image)

Karsten Lund is Assistant Curator at The Renaissance Society with recent curated exhibitions including Ben Rivers em>Urth and Sadie Benning's Shared Eye. Previously, Lund was Curatorial Assistant at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, contributing to major group exhibitions including The Way of the Shovel: Art as Archaeology and The Freedom Principle: Experiments in Art and Music, 1965 to Now.Additionally, he has produced curatorial projects at other venues, including the Museum of Contemporary Photography, New Capital Projects, Hyde Park Art Center, and a factory shortly before its demolition.

UNTHOUGHT ENVIRONMENTS

Start with the ancient elements—earth, water, fire, air—and then expand your view of our elemental world. Think about sunlight, weather systems, rare earth minerals, and electromagnetic forces, to name only a few other things. Phenomena like these are integral to our daily lives but they can be elusive, easily forgotten, or deliberately kept out of sight: the hidden components of our virtual worlds, factors in geopolitics, or deeper influences on human habits and cultures. What are our “unthought environments” today? Our elemental surroundings become another kind of vital infrastructure, seemingly there to be used and overlooked, but the elements have shaped us, too, and sometimes they veer into the foreground.

Unthought Environments is informed by evolving discussions in various fields, including media studies, ecology, and philosophy. Against this backdrop, new and recent artworks offer a set of explorations with different focal points in the elemental sphere as it intersects with our more human-made domains. The artists’ videos, sculptures, photographs, installations, and digital images delve into the state of water in multiple countries; the mining operations that feed our computers; the effects of the sun; electromagnetic fields made visible; dust storms; and other phenomena brought to life.

Curated by Karsten Lund.

Bad at Sports Episode 580: Rebecca Keller

Sat, 11 Mar 2017 14:00:00 +0000

Bad at Sports Center Episode 4 from the studios of WLPN Radio!

Rebecca Keller!

http://rebeccakeller.net/home.html

Rebecca Keller's numerous awards include two Fulbrights, an American Association of Museum International Fellowship and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and Illinois Arts Council. She has exhibited widely, including exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, the Hyde Park Art Center; the International Waldkunst Biennial; the Estonian National Art Museum, the Portland Art Museum; the International Museum of Surgical Science; the Tartu Art Museum; Elmhurst Art Museum and many others. In recent years her work has focused on history as a category and engine for art-making: her Excavating History projects use art and writing to expand and complicate the established narratives of historic sites. These "site-complicit' interventions have occurred nationally and internationally, in locations as diverse an anatomy theater in Estonia to the Jane Addams Hull House Museum in Chicago. Her book about this work:  Excavating History; When Artists Take on Historic Sites was published in 2012 by Stepsister Press. A second edition came out in 2015.

Keller was cofounder of YoYoMagazine.org, an online journal of art, writing and creativity. She also writes fiction, and was a finalist for the Chicago Literary Guild’s 2013 prose award, and has twice been nominated for the Pushcart Prize.

We also tackle "Hegemony," Dana gives us a heads up on the "T," and mention 5 things you could have seen this week.

Bad at Sports Episode 579 Carris Adams

Fri, 10 Mar 2017 14:00:00 +0000

Carris Adams! Rocking Bad at Sports Center episode 3!

Found bio (from http://www.messagesinthestreet.com/carris-adams/):

Carris Adams' (B. 1987, Dallas, TX., lives Chicago) creates large scale drawings and paintings to address the signs and signifiers within a landscape that suggests difference, otherness and value. Believing that within the landscape are signs (literal, symbolic and semiotic) pointing to race, gender, systemic inequalities and resilience- Adams’s peripatetic practice allows for these images, objects and language to become source material for the studio. Recent exhibition include Trapped in Acapulco, Logan Center Exhibitions, The University of Chicago (2015), Lands End, Logan Art Center Exhibitions (2015), and “Re”, South Dallas Cultural Center, Dallas TX (2014). Adams received her BFA from The University of Texas at Austin and her MFA from University of Chicago, Chicago IL.

Bad at Sports Episode 564: Caroline Wells Chandler

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 21:17:59 +0000

This week on Bad at Sports, NYC/BAS: Amanda Browder and Caroline Burghardt return to the airwaves with an interview with New York based artist Caroline Wells Chandler. Our interview was done a few months after his installation at Spring Break art fair 2016 / Field Projects in NYC. The quote below is from the statement for this exhibition.  "Chandler pulls inspiration from the story of Hermaphroditus and his merging with the water nymph Salmacis. Melding this ancient Greek myth with contemporary references and creations, from transgender Santa Claus to beach bums and cowbois, the artist playfully immerses the audience in an exploration of transgender identity. Contemporary identities morph and fluctuate, pushed forward by radical practices of self-creation and influenced by biological impulses and desires. While the shaping and reshaping, identifying and unidentifying, copying and pasting may seem fanciful at first glance, the stakes for trans and lgbtq-identified people are deep and pressing. Chandler’s work acknowledges the deep stakes at hand, while embracing a joyful, celebratory aesthetic, combining playful colors and forms with a confident embrace of sexuality. "  For all in Chicago in 2017 look out for his solo exhibition at Andrew Rafacz Gallery.  Link to Field Projects and Caroline Wells Chandler's site :  http://www.fieldprojectsgallery.com/springbreak2016/   Born in Norfolk, Virginia, Caroline Wells Chandler currently lives and works in New York. He completed his foundation studies at the Rhode Island School of Design and received his BFA cum laude from Southern Methodist University in 2007. He has shown at numerous institutions including: Zurcher Studio (NY), Anna Kustera (NY), Field Projects (NY), Vox Populi (PA), Sanctuary (PA), N’Namdi Center for Contemporary Art (MI), Open Gallery (TN), The Bascom (NC), Arlington Arts Center (VA), and the Stieglitz Museum (‘s-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands) among others. Chandler is a 2011 MFA recipient in painting at the Yale School of Art where he was awarded the Ralph Mayer Prize for proficiency in materials and techniques. He lives and works in New York. Queering the Lines will mark the third solo show within a year for the artist. Amanda Browder www.amandabrowder.com   ALSO: Go see Richard's show!

Is a magical and triumphant return. We were on a post-EXPO vacation and we don't mind admitting that we feel little sheepish about it.

 then Irene Hofmann rewrites the script at Site Santa Fe to buck the proliferation biennial trend and provide a fertile ground for those of us participating in the Pan American experience.

Then roughly 46 minutes in Ben Davis and Duncan start to solve arts journalism and end up solving art!!! They are two the best conversations we've had at EXPO and you'll enjoy them. Occupy this show!

Bad at Sports Episode 553: Allison Glenn

Wed, 13 Jul 2016 20:24:12 +0000

This week's episode produced in conjunction with Chicago’s Lake FX Summit. We join Dana Bassett and Allison Glenn as they unpack the unusual public art exhibition “Messages in the Street.” The conversation ranges broadly from the context of public art, institutional and non-institutional modes of being, money and our collective frustration with it, a surprising suggestion that Wittgenstein is a father, and they delve deep into hash tagging, and Beyoncé versus Bell Hooks.

 

Check out Dana Bassett’s wrap up post here.

Bad at Sports Episode 552: MSB vs. Chris Dennis

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 03:15:21 +0000

This week sees the return of the once thought lost Mark Staff Brandl!

Chris Dennis!

(image)

(image)

From his site:

Chris Dennis grew up in, England. He studied natural history illustration at Bournemouth and Poole College of Art and this classical training is evident in his current therianthropic work.  After completing his BA (Hons) at the University of Wolverhampton he relocated to the United States, and in 2000 earned his MFA from the University of Art in San Francisco. In 2010 after a period in Berlin, Chris made Auckland his home. He has exhibited in New Zealand, Europe and across the United States.

He currently resides in Zürich, Switzerland.

  My paintings are perhaps best described as ‘Narrative expressionism’ or ‘internalized portraiture’. The stories behind these ‘Therianthropic’ pieces have been carefully obfuscated and invite the viewer to create their own narrative, bringing to mind facets or emotions that maybe more difficult to confront if not disguised behind a mask.

Bad at Sports Episode 549: James Wines SITE Architect

Tue, 24 May 2016 04:32:41 +0000

Low and behold, in conjunction with Rhona Hoffman and on the eve of the 2015 Chicago Architectural Biennial we had a once in a life time opportunity to sit down and speak with James Wines of SITE. An architect so radical his buildings have a power quite unlike most contemporary architects, they don't bend us with spectacle, physicality, or industry, they delight us with wit and whimsy. They open our eyes to a magic in the everyday or in the second glance you have to give to a building telling you the story of its demise.

Some days this is the best job.

Guest curated by Edra Soto and Josue Pellot, Present Standard features 25 contemporary artists with Latino Chicago connections.

This week: Bad at Sports goes to SPRING BREAK Art Fair in the burned out section of the Post Office building on the Westside of Manhattan.

Bad at Sports Episodes 543: SETI

Fri, 18 Mar 2016 13:28:17 +0000

Brian and Patricia play Mulder and Scully this week as they sit down with the masterminds behind the SETI Institute artists-in-residence program. For those B@S faithful listeners unfamiliar with the Institute (An oxymoron, if there ever was one ) SETI stands for the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence. Yes, friends, we're talking space aliens.   As part of the Institute's goal "to explore, understand, and explain the origin and nature of life in the universe, and to apply the knowledge gained to inspire and guide present and future generations," they now host a residency program for artists based out of their Mountain View, CA headquarters. Artists work with scientists across a range of disciplines at any of the associated facilities to facilitate an exchange of ideas an create new modes of comprehension or expression. No, they didn't tell us how you can apply.    We hear from SETI AIR director Charles Lindsey, who was the inaugural AIR, and Advisory Committee chair Denise Markonish, who is curator at MASSMoCA, as well as current AIRs Dario Robleto and Martin Wilner. Listen as they receive takeout delivery from ET.    http://www.seti.org/ http://www.seti.org/artist-in-residence   Charles Lindsay Charles is a multi-disciplinary artist interested in technology, eco-systems, semiotics and esoteric forms of humor. He was the SETI Institute’s first Artist in Residence 2010 - 2015 and is now leading the SETI AIR program. Lindsay is a Guggenheim Fellow and the recipient of a 2015 Rauschenberg Residency.

Bad at Sports Episode 541: Peter Wachtler

Thu, 03 Mar 2016 03:59:21 +0000

This week Dana Bassett and Duncan MacKenzie catch up with Peter Wachtler at Chicago's Renaissance Society just after their 100th anniversary. We "borrowed" this from Art Space which "borrowed" it from the Liverpool Biennial... probably it is updated on the Renassance Society website. PETER WÄCHTLER Born: 1979 Hometown: Hanover, Germany Lives and Works: Brussels, Belgium and Berlin, Germany Education: Fine Art Studies, Bauhaus-University Weimar with Prof. Fritz Rahmann, 2004 Kent Institute of Art and Design, Canterbury / England   While it might seem foreign or unfamiliar, underwater life, bourgeois domesticity, or the world of Peter Wächtler’s animated cartoons are simply habitats, each one coming with a set of behaviors, life-forms, movements, objects, images, and relationships. What is a disaster in one is a miracle in another and nothing more than routine in another. Dislocating them or mixing them together short-circuits their logic. To a butler—like the character that so frequently appears in Wächtler’s work—acts of intimacy, hospitality, corruption, lust, kindness, desperation, generosity, jealousy, hypocrisy, or delinquency are all the same in the end—it’s all just administration. Or,in an animated cartoon, deadpan humor can be laced with depression and pathos, and used to tell stories of heart-broken rats or hobos. Peter Wächtler’s recent solo exhibitions include dépendance, Brussels, Kunstverein Hildesheim, Ludlow 38, New York, Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna, Galerie Lars Friedrich, Berlin, Etablissement d’en Face, Brussels. His work has been included in group exhibitions atLyon Biennale, Wiels Centre d’Art Contemporain, Brussels, Witte de With, and Center for Contemporary Art, Rotterdam.  Courtesy of Liverpool Biennial  The Ren posted the audio of his reading here...

Bad at Sports Episode 540: Vesna Jovanovic

Mon, 22 Feb 2016 19:32:38 +0000

Pretty sure I pronounced Vesna's last name wrong... Opps.

But here it is the long awaited conversation and the return of a former host.

From the International Museum of Surgical Science...

Vesna Jovanovic is a Chicago-based visual artist who specializes in conceptualizations of the human body. Using spilled ink as groundwork, she creates drawings that often formally resemble medical illustration while concentrating on what is usually left out: how it feels and what it means to have a body as well as how the body is culturally perceived. With drawing as a bodily act and medical illustration as a visual trope, Jovanovic brings embodiment, biopolitics, phenomenology, and various other ideas and theories of the human body into her work.

Bad at Sports Episode 539: Catherine Wagner

Thu, 11 Feb 2016 12:59:28 +0000

This week, we join Brian and Patricia as they chat with Bay Area artist, doyenne, and badass Catherine Wagner following a decadent champagne brunch in her studio to ring in the New Year. For over thirty years Catherine Wagner has been observing the built environment as a metaphor for how we construct our cultural identities. She’s examined institutions as various as art museums and science labs, the home and Disneyland. Ms. Wagner’s process involves the investigation of what art critic David Bonetti calls "the systems people create, our love of order, our ambition to shape the world, the value we place on knowledge, and the tokens we display to express ourselves."  While Ms. Wagner has spent her life residing in California, she has also been an active international artist, working photographically, as well as site-specific public art, and lecturing extensively at museums and universities. She has received many major awards, including the Rome Prize (2013-2014), a Guggenheim Fellowship, NEA Fellowships, and the Ferguson Award. In 2001 Ms. Wagner was named one of Time Magazine’s Fine Arts Innovators of the Year. Her work is represented in major collections nationally and around the world, such as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, SFMOMA, The Whitney Museum of American Art, MOMA, MFA Houston. She has also published several monographs, including American Classroom, Art & Science: Investigating Matter, and Cross Sections.[...]

Bad at Sports 536: Janet Cardiff

Fri, 08 Jan 2016 17:42:51 +0000

Janet Cardiff’s Forty Part Motet is composed of forty speakers arranged in eight groups of five, configured as a large oval facing each other in the center of the room, and resting on stands so they are roughly just above eye level. The Motet, as Cardiff referred to it in our conversation, is a reworking of the English composer Thomas Tallis'sSpem in Alium (1570), which translates as “Hope in Any Other” and is sung in Latin by a choir of forty voices. The composition is arranged so that the choir, like the speakers, is divided into eight groups of five singers; each group consists of a soprano, tenor, alto, baritone, and bass. The groups alternate singing: first one, than another, sometimes alone, and at a few moments, all together, rising in a crescendo that breaks open the room to a place beyond the physical world. To hear the Motet in its entirety is profound. Spem in Alium is considered one of the greatest works of English music. The Forty Part Motet is equally a contemporary masterwork. It was a privilege, then, to sit down with Cardiff on November 12, 2015, to speak about her practice.  - Patricia Maloney Janet Cardiff lives in British Columbia, where she works in collaboration with her partner George Bures Miller. The artist is internationally recognized for immersive multimedia works that create transcendent multisensory experiences and draw the viewer into often unsettling narratives. Cardiff and Miller’s work has been included in recent group exhibitions and biennales such as Soundscapes at the National Gallery, London, the 19th Biennale of Sydney in 2014, and dOCUMENTA (13). Representing Canada at the 2001 Venice Biennale, Cardiff and Miller received the[...]

This week we present literally exactly what happened when Duncan did this:

EXPO VIDEO | Alfredo Cramerotti In Conversation
Featuring Alfredo Cramerotti, Director | MOSTYN and 2015 EXPO VIDEO Curator Malerie Marder, Artist and Cauleen Smith, Artist. Moderated by Duncan MacKenzie, Bad at Sports

Internationally acclaimed curator in film, video and new media Alfredo Cramerotti will be in conversation with Bad at Sports discussing the 2015 EXPO VIDEO program. Based in the UK, Cramerotti's work explores the relationship between reality and representation across TV, radio, publishing, critical writing, photography and curatorial exhibitions. His research includes the theory and practice of “aesthetic journalism,” a concept he created to investigate the relationship between contemporary exhibitions and elements of interview, documentary and reportage.
