Megafauna hosts, Jesse Malmed and Ryan Peter Miller, hold an animated exchange with curator Kate Sierzputowski and artists Danielle Rosen and Dominique Knowles, discussing The Intuitive Language of an Extended Hand, an exhibition currently on display at Julius Ceasar, which also features artist Emilie Gossiaux. In the spirit of the exhibition, the conversation decries the anthropocentric hierarchy of non-human and human animals, exploring the mutual care between the not-so-distinct classifications of beings.
On today’s show Dana and Duncan are joined in the Lumpen studios by conceptual heavyweight, Abraham Cruzvillegas. We discuss the work and intention behind The Ballad of Etc., a new exhibition opening at The Arts Club of Chicago on September 12th featuring a musical performance in collaboration with experimental jazz ensemble, Restroy. In addition his brilliant conversation, Cruzvillegas shares a preview of some of the writing and music used to create the exhibition. Definitely an episode not to be missed!
In this week’s episode we check in with Houston based artist Lisa Lapinski. On the opening day of the NADA Chicago invitational Lapinsky makes time to sit down and talk about Minneapolis art institutions, underpants, tobacco, and bingo and a post-Orientalist America. We check in about childhood myths and modernist sculpture, and recognize the vaping horrors being experienced by the youth of America today.
