On this harrowing episode of Bad at SportsCenter, we talk with photographer Stephanie Burke. Her ongoing series of photographs is a visual exploration of lost opportunities at Parks College. Founded in 1927 by Oliver “Lafe” Parks, Parks College was a nexus of aviation development throughout the 20th century. When the Parks College program was moved to SLU in 1997, the Cahokia Il campus was left empty, and has subsequently gone to ruin.

On today’s episode of Bad at Sports Center, Dana and Duncan have the distinct pleasure of speaking with Naomi Beckwith, the current Museum of Contemporary Art Manilow Senior Curator and incoming Deputy Director and Jennifer and David Stockman Chief Curator of New York’s Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. We discuss Beckwith’s curatorial style, vision for her new position and and her recent work on the exhibition “Grief and Grievance: Art and Mourning in America,” originally conceived by the late Okwui Enwezor at the New Museum. All this and just a little bit of “T” to round out our latest. We hope you enjoy it, friend.

This week Bad at Sports Center welcomes Nicole Marroquin participant in the DePaul Art Museum exhibition LatinXAmerican and Faculty at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Marroquin’s  practice ranges from social justice to community organizing to educating public school teachers to archiving microhistories and the work of the photographer Diana Solís. Ryan and Duncan trace her practice through a ruckus and bouncy chat that eventually finds its root in Marroquin’s history as a printer and ceramicist.
