Tune in this years first Bad at Sports Center with artist Gregory Bae & Kyle Bellucci Johanson of Table Projects in Avondale. We discuss how Bae’s experience of the movie Groundhog Day in Korea resulted in his new exhibition at Table, Black Hole or Love. We hear the foodie backstory behind Table Projects and rip the art right out of Bae’s soul as he describes the semi-science behind his work.
