This week bad at sports presents a panel on making and being presented at Hauser and Wirth by our partners BFAMFAPhD.
Interdisciplinary artist Brendan Fernandes speaks with Brian and Dana on this week’s episode of Bad at Sports Center. Fernandes sheds light on the secretive process behind his selection to participate in this year’s Whitney Biennial, and we learn more about artist’s move recent move from NY to Chicago, where he serves as faculty in ART, THEORY, PRACTICE at Northwestern University. Brian learns some new things about ballet, and we wrap up the show with some thoughts on Mary Boone’s imminent departure from the NY gallery scene.
This week we present the Miami-based project Dimensions Variable with Frances Trombley and Leyden Rodriguez-Casanova and connect with two members of the brain trust for SWAB Fair, Carolina Diez-Cascon and Alvaro Gurrea. All thanks to NADA art fairs. Booth by Claire Ashley.
In this long awaited episode from Open Engagement 2016, we are mesmerized by Aaron Gach of the Center for Tactical Magic. Aaron illuminates us on power and the adoption of magical techniques by the NSA. Has NSA influence somehow made this episode post two years late? We can’t say.
The B@SC trifecta (Brian, Ryan & Dana) is back in full effect for today’s episode with Kansas City based artist, Garry Noland. Fresh off the plane and in town for the opening of “Base Materials” at the Cleve Carney Gallery at the College of DuPage, Noland and our hosts discuss his solo exhibition, and the implication of “abutting” the divergent approaches apparent in his art making. Noland wisely reflects on his move back and forth from LA, the verbs that make his work go, and the process of collaborating with your materials. All this & more on this episode of Bad at Sports Center!
