This week we talk Cuba, books and artistic exchange with Chicago’s Dianna Frid. In advance of the opening of…

CROSS CURRENTS / INTERCAMBIO CULTURAL

Cross Currents is the result of an artist exchange organized by the National Museum of Mexican Art. Six Chicago-based artists visited Havana in spring 2017 and six Cuban artists visited Chicago in fall 2017 and summer 2018. The work on view reflects the artists’ experiences and observations as they interacted with each other, curators, cultural spaces, and neighborhoods during their trips. The project aims to open pathways of communication and understanding between the two cities and peer artists while also reflecting on their own artistic practices at this moment in time.

Episode 695: Naomi Potter and the Esker Foundation


download

Today on Bad at Sports Center, Naomi Potter of the Esker Foundation drops into the studio with fellow Calgarian, DMack Mackenzie. Potter tells us about exhibitions and programing at Esker, and discusses her work building an arts institution from the ground up. We weirdly ask her to imagine if the B@S team were all babies (which we are), and give a few of our own Chicago art viewing recommendations for this summer in Chicago. We learn what an “esker” is and you can too if you listen to the show!

Episode 694: Alberto Aguilar


download

I am Alberto Aguilar. For this episode of Bad at Sports I’m joined with Lorelei Stewart to be interviewed by Dana, Ryan, Duncan and co-guest Jesse Malmed. How is Jesse a co-guest? Shouldn’t he be a guest co-host? I have allowed for questions. We are here to talk about my survey exhibition ‘moves on human scale’ (it is not a retrospective) at Gallery 400 which runs through June 15, but may go a month longer. I have allowed for open endedness. This interview will last a little under an hour. It doesn’t need to be a good interview we just need to fill the allotted time. In the recording booth we will have an experience which will be shared with you, the listener. One thing you may not hear as the listener is Ryan getting up in the middle of the recording to get me a can of seltzer water to alleviate an unexpected cough.
