Daniel Tucker and Anthony Romero join us live from the Chicago Cultural Center during the Latin X conference to discuss the exhibition, book, and event series “Organize Your Own” then we post a panel they organized that was presented by Chicago’s MCA and Columbia College.

Discussion at the MCA Chicago, 
This discussion will start with a screening of an excerpt from the film American Revolution 2 (by the Film Group) followed by a discussion about artists who are organizing in culturally and ethnically specific networks, including Eric J. Garcia, Nicole Marroquin, and Maria Gaspar, moderated by Anthony Romero.

Originally conceived as a two-city exhibition, following the election the project is now beginning a year long national tour – details about how to get involved are here https://organizeyourown.wordpress.com/ and the catalog can be purchased here http://soberscove.com/book/organize-your-own/

Dearest Friends & Frenemies of Bad at Sports,

Bad at Sports/badatsports.com (B@S) continues to conquer the universe! Latest victory – terrestrial radio!

On the heels of the wildly successful past 10 years of having the most popular art podcast in the World and a blog that should be the most popular in the World (if those asshats at ArtNet would quit muscling in on our game) is starting a new venture Bad at Sports Center!

B@S is just tickled to announce the soft launch of our new website with a correspondingly revamped daily schedule for Bad at Sports’ podcast and blog posts. Alongside our website reboot, the team behind B@S is teaming up with WLPN to present a new weekly radio show, Bad at Sports Center, which will begin airing Wednesday, February 15th at 11am to Noon on 105.5 FM WLPN and their mobile app.

If that wasn’t exciting enough, Bad at Sports will be celebrating this flurry of activity with a screening and discussion with Bad at Sport Center’s first ever guest, Guy Richards Smit. Hosted by our friends at ACRE, Bad at Sports will present a screening of Smit’s “The Grossmalerman Show” Series on Thursday, February 16th at 7PM. More information about the event can be found here.

Please find more information on the new website & WLPN Radio Show below:

Our weekly podcast is moving from Monday to Tuesday! Additionally, we are rolling out a corresponding weekly posting schedule to help advance and streamline our reader experience. See the full schedule below:

 

  • Monday – Reviews!
  • Tuesday – Podcast!
  • Wednesday – Features & Essays!
  • Thursday – Weekly Top 5 presented in partnership with The Visualist!
  • Friday – Institutional Memory (formally launching in April but there will be many treats before then.)
  • Weekenders –  Comics, Astrology, and reasons to live in these dark times!

 

For the first time ever, Bad at Sports will also be adding a submission form to accept pitches, reviews, and response from our online community.

The new Bad at Sports Center Show (Wednesdays 11-noon) will take the whip smart contemporary art discussion and podcast infused style to terrestrial radio and focus further on Chicago artists and art issues. Weekly hosts will be Brian Andrews, Dana Bassett, Richard Holland, Duncan MacKenzie, and introducing, Ryan Peter Miller.

Thanks for all of your support over the past 10 years. Here’s to a 100 more years of flippant and enjoyable art conversation and criticism!
