This week Ryan & Brian chat with Samantha Reynolds, Nimah Gobir, Guta Galli and Katherine Vetne about Until it Shatters, an exhibition at Root Division in conjunction with the Feminist Art Coalition that opens this election day. The exhibition title is in reference to Hillary Clinton’s presidential concession speech “Now, I know we have still not shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling, but someday, someone will…” Since its original inception, the curatorial model of Until It Shatters has adapted and shifted to an artist-driven project based on the shared need for community.
Join us on this week’s episode of Bad at Sports Center as Jesse and Dana virtually meet up for a conversation with Chicago fiber, social practice, and performance artist, Aram Han Sifuentes. We discuss the artists’ multifaceted methods and finding joy in ongoing politically oriented projects like the Protest Banner Lending Library and US Citizenship Test Sampler. We also learn how Sifuentes is adapting her 2020 Official Unofficial Voting Station to the pandemic times in advance of the upcoming election.
