This week we talk to Susan F. Rossen, Executive Director of Publications at the Art Institute of Chicago about the new show at Corbett vs. Dempsey: Joseph Friebert, Fred Berman, & the Milwaukee Scene 1935-1965.
Also Mike Benedetto has his first Superstar Special movie review.
And, Brian Andrews and Marc LeBlanc talk to Joyce Grimm and Dina Pugh about Triple Base gallery, and creating a space for emerging artists and curators. All you bright young upstarts, you need to listen to this interview.
We still want your feedback. E-mail us at email@example.com with your thoughts on the show, what works, what doesn’t, who we should interview, and who should piss-off.
We promise we will never record the intro and outro in a Dunkin Donuts again, sorry.
THIS WEEK: the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art’s Manilow Senior Curator Francesco Bonami interviewed live a Three Walls on Tuesday November 21, 2006. Francesco gives his frank and funny perspective on everything from: why Australian art is bad, compares Kentuckians to Europeans, and talks about the role of the curator as artist.
Well the residency is over. Thanks for coming. Thanks to Three Walls for all their help and patience. It was nice to meet so many of you and there was a minimum of rotting fruit thrown at us.
Hey! We need your help, yes you dammit. We crank out this show every week for you information and amusement, now it is time for your sorry butts to pitch in.
We need to hear your feedback, we are about to have our third formal staff meeting ever and would love to hear from you on what works, what doesn’t, who you’d like to hear interviewed (no, don’t say “me” unless you have a solid reason or are a superstar) and any other wit and wisdom you the loyal listener wishes to send our way. We are going to re-examine and re-evaluate the project to see where we go from here (if we go from here?) and would love to hear from people outside of our sad, insular, little bubble. Please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org, title your e-mail “Feedback”. Thanks!
Duncan talks to the crew from Bridge about the impending Miami madness. Newly knighted European bureau chief Mark Staff Brandl talks lots of shows across the pond. Mike Benedetto talks Kurosawa’s Rahomom. Brian Andrews on Portland.
Wow! That’s a whole lotta show.
Thanks to Mr. Moon for helping out with the intro.
We need an audio intern. E-mail us if you have a clue, and don’t mind somewhat dull technical work. Lots of gory, oh, my friend there is lots of glory. No money.
ALSO: BAS has an APB out for Phil Berkman. If anyone out there knows Phil Berkman we are trying to get ahold of him…
Chicago gallerist and legend Rhona Hoffman recorded live in a discussion with Bad at Sports at Three-Walls, on November 7, 2006, election day… when happy days arrived again.
Feeling consumed by your art? Contemplating selling your soul for fame? Take a breather from the back-breaking quest for immortality and join us November 14th at ThreeWalls (7pm) to talk about Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray – a tale of excess, indulgence, murder and art.
As part of their BASECAMP residency, Bad At Sports invites you to their first ever Book Club. Filled with sex, opium, and more dandies than you can shake a stick at, The Picture of Dorian Gray undertakes
a discussion of the relevance of art and the role it should play in daily life. People’s destinies are changed and characters are destroyed because a painter strays beyond aesthetics and puts too much
of himself into a painting. Another character is permanently “poisoned” by reading a book. So we must ask: Can one person’s artistic expression really alter the viewer/reader forever?
Come and join us as we share insights about art making, soul selling and, well, dandies.
The Picture of Dorian Gray is widely available. It is currently on sale at Barnes and Noble for 2.50 and available for free at Project Gutenberg
