Episode 677: Garry Noland


download

The B@SC trifecta (Brian, Ryan & Dana) is back in full effect for today’s episode with Kansas City based artist, Garry Noland. Fresh off the plane and in town for the opening of “Base Materials” at the Cleve Carney Gallery at the College of DuPage, Noland and our hosts discuss his solo exhibition, and the implication of “abutting” the divergent approaches apparent in his art making. Noland wisely reflects on his move back and forth from LA, the verbs that make his work go, and the process of collaborating with your materials. All this & more on this episode of Bad at Sports Center!
