This week: Richard and Duncan speak with Chicago based artist and 2010 Whitney Biennial participant Julia Fish about her work, Japanese architecture and more!
Before that starts, there is a short pithy segment on C2E2, which was awesome (the show not our bit).
Yes I made a stupid Front 242 musical joke which only I will find funny.
This week Jeffrey Deitch interviewed by Carlo McCormick!!! Recorded before a live studio audience at the BAS apexart show “Don’t Piss on Me and Tell Me it is Raining.”
Carlo McCormick is a leading New York art writer and a champion of “the downtown scene”. For almost decades Jeffrey Deitch has been perhaps the most important taste maker and facilitator of emerging contemporary art in New York City and the world. On the eve of Deitch’s departure from New York, Carlo will talk to Jeffrey about his time and legacy as one of the most visible, dynamic and controversial players in the the New York art world.
This week: HOLY CRAP OUR SHOW AT apexart OPENS!!! April 7th 6-8 p.m. http://www.apexart.org/exhibitions/badatsports.htm.
Also this week: Duncan talks to Peter Otto!
Peter Otto’s work reports on the constituent factors of a human condition continually shifting between beguiling and highly disturbing. He reveals the state to which humanity – ever tested by social, cultural and political forces – bends, breaks and at times collapses. His paintings and sculptures show a reality emerging from the darkest moments. The themes are somber; the work though is delicately formed and teeming with graceful facture.
Otto, who lives in Arnhem, The Netherlands, has been featured in solo and group exhibitions throughout Europe including projects at Museum Beelden aan Zee in Scheveningen, the Kröller-Müller Museum, Boÿmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam, Galerie Reuten and Galerie Swart in Amsterdam, the Museum Kurhaus Kleve and the Pushkin Museum in Moscow.
This week: Patricia sits down with artist Mads Lynnerup during his recent sojourn in San Francisco. They talk about spotting Cyndi Lauper at the New Museum, precocious nerdy kids at the Guggenheim, navigating the ever-growing professionalization of the art world, everyday routines, and the merits of being a prankster.
Mad Lynnerup was born in Copenhagen, Denmark and lives and works in Copenhagen and New York. He completed his MFA from Columbia University in 2007 and received a BFA from San Francisco Art Institute in 2001. He has shown his work at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; The Mori Art Museum, Tokyo; P.S. 1 and Socrates Sculpture Park, both New York; and Zacheta National Gallery of Art, Warsaw. Lynnerup works across such diverse media as video, sculpture, drawing, and printmaking. Many of the themes in his work have roots in his constant interest in the everyday and his surroundings.
This is the third collaboration between Art Practical and Bad At Sports.

Amy Franceschini is an artist and educator whose work has at its core cross-disciplinary research with a focus on how humans impact the world we inhabit. Her work encourages new formats of exchange and production, many times in collaboration with other practitioners.
These works often provide a playful entry point and tools for an audience to gain insight into a deeper field of inquiry not only to imagine, but to participate in and initiate change in the places we live. Amy founded the artists’ collective and design studio, Futurefarmers, in 1995 and Free Soil in 2004.
Her solo and collaborative work have been in international exhibitions at ZKM, Whitney Museum, the New York Museum of Modern Art and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco. She received her BFA from San Francisco State University, MFA from Stanford University, and is currently an Assistant Professor of Art + Architecture at University of San Francisco and visiting artist at California College of the Arts. She is the recipient of the Artadia, Cultural Innovation, Eureka Fellowship, Creative Capital and SFMOMA SECA Awards.
