Bad at Sports interviews Northwestern professor Lane Relyea. Between sips of whiskey, Lane discusses the state of criticism in Chicago and the nation at large. Not only does he explain why it’s better to be a curator in Chicago than L.A (and better to be
an artist in L.A. rather than Chicago), but then the interview crescendos into Lane and Richard’s smackdown confrontation about art theory.

Later, Duncan reviews Deb Sokolow at Polvo, and Jamison Oggs at Art Ledge. Amanda wraps it up with a review of the Jose Lerma show at Andrea Rosen Gallery in NY, and Lane chimes in with rants and commentary.
