Rachel Adams joins us live from the halls of EXPO Chicago to talk about all things Bemis Art Center and the Omaha Art scene! We learn about art, llfe, and a little about love as we bounce across the house of yes, residencies, exhibitions and how your dream job might not be where you thought it would be but it is no less dreamy.
It’s the first week in April and that means its time for EXPO Chicago. Brian chats with the fair’s director Tony Karman about returning from the pandemic after two and a half years and how best to get into the art amid all the hubbub.
And for our second trick we bring in Kate Sierzputowski to chat EXPO programing, community engagement, and the Barely Fair!
Almost as jam packed as art weekend 2022!
BEN FOCH! Marc LeBlanc? Grumpy digital skepticism? NFT revolution? Crypto currency wrestled with? EXPO party power? Hood Ornament? The Cult of the Cheetah revealed. It is quite the adventure. Pay attention nonbeliever because we live in the future.
This week Bad at Sports Center checks in with Chicago photo super hero Jessica Labatte and a coterie of Northern Illinois University students (Alex Dulski, Edwin Perez-Hernandez, and Emma Vitallo) as they work towards the construction of the world’s largest paper snowflake.
Today on Bad at Sports, special Guest Host Mel Cook joins Jesse for a lively conversation with Neal Vandenbergh. Neal has an alluring and excellent exhibition that calls itself Landscape with a Man Killed by a Snake at Mickey Gallery up through April 10th. We move through Neal’s practice, talk form, talk politics, talk process and laugh a bit.
