Jessica Stockholder is reticent to be called a living legend, but on this week’s episode, Bad@SportsCenter speaks with living legend, JEsSicA sTOckHoLDeR! With an impending sabbatical from University of Chicago, Stockholder will still be doing all of the things, including a year-long residency in Berlin, and upcoming exhibitions at The Contemporary Austin and the Centraal Museum, Utrecht. Our charming discourse addresses her process, materiality, language, and the essentialism of production to existence. Can we get an Amen?!?

Bad @ SportsCenter kicks back this week with Chicago painter, Susanne Doremus, for a delightful exchange over her current show at Devening Projects, Cabinet:1. In her newest exhibition, Doremus has drawn down the emblematic grand scale of her paintings, inaugurating new spaces for her visual lexicon of calligraphic line and exposed revisions. We visit the affinity of drawing and painting, the influence of teaching on studio practice, and the function of audience on the objet d’art.
