Join Bad at Sports Center for a summer-facing conversation with Threewalls Director and independent curator, Jeffreen M. Hayes, Ph.D. We speak with Haynes following the announcement that AFRICOBRA: Nation Time, the second iteration of her recent exhibition at MoCA in North Miami will travel to Italy as an official Collateral Event at the 2019 Venice Biennale. Hayes discusses the process of curating the landmark exhibition, and her intentions for staging a new version in Venice. All this & more on this weeks episode of Bad at Sports Center on Lumpen Radio!
In this episode we welcome back three long lost friends. We pull Richard Holland and Christian Kuras out of retirement to speak deeply and profoundly about the complexities of museum funding. We visit the studio of Michael Rakowitz to talk about what it’s like to be considered for the Whitney biennial and to choose not to participate. Then to have that choice forced to become a public act and to find the people wanting for a conversation about the future of our museums.
This week bad at sports presents a event on When Projects Depart presented at Hauser and Wirth by our partners BFAMFAPhD.
When Projects Depart
What practices might we develop to honor the departure of a project? For example, where do materials go when they are no longer of use, value, or interest?
Happy Spring/ Purim/ Equinox! On this weeks vernal episode, Dana, Brian and co-guest, Jesse Malmed, are joined in the studio by Jacob Ciocci of Paper Rad and DePaul’s School of Cinematic Arts, where he teaches animation. We discuss Ciocci’s latest work for his upcoming screening, un-confusingly titled “April fools! Pain is just a Program made by your Mind: the video Program. New Videos made by your Mind by Jacob Ciocci,” taking place April 1st at the The Nightingale Cinema. Ciocci also walks our hosts through the process for creating his award winning “Cloudy Boyz” beer label, and treats them to some very historic Paper Rad history.
This week Ryan (and a conspicuously late Dana) are joined in the studio by painter Kevin Stuart. We discuss the endurance of painting as a genre and Stuart explains the inspiration for his work, which includes everything from anonymous drawings of people on public transit to Tolstoy’s great work of Russian literature, “Anna K.” We also learn of the artist’s secret pigmentary breakthrough, and some of the Stuart’s upcoming plans for yet-to-be public projects. All this and for sure more on this episode of Bad at Sports Center on Lumpen Radio!
Today’s episode of Bad@SportsCenter is a lovey one-on-one conversation with Brooklyn-based painter Jenn Dierdorf. A recovering conceptual sculptor, Dierdorf transitioned to painting a decade ago to reassert fun and frivolity into her studio life. We discuss all the things a vase of flowers can accomplish with the right amount of unction, and the power of solidarity among Dierdorf’s well-anointed Lady Painters.
