This week: The penultimate show of the Richard Holland era has arrived. There was only one person who could possibly have been the subject of this show and that, of course, is Richard’s good friend, Bad at Sports co-host and all around awesome person Amanda Browder! They talk about Amanda’s work, installation and site specific art and Duncan’s creepy fixations.
Next week is episode 500! Duncan, Richard and Amanda gather at a non-ironic tiki bar. Rude jokes are told. It is a wacky mess. Don’t miss it.
Check out Amanda’s work at www.amandabrowder.com
This week: A very brief interview with Doris Salcedo with special guests Sarah Guernsey, Executive Director of Publishing at the Art Institute of Chicago, and Hank Holland intern at Bad at Sports. Following the long intro and short interview we present courtesy of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Doris Salcedo’s talk from February 22, 2015. Thanks MCA!
Only two more weeks of that Holland charm.
This week: Duncan talks to Joe Zucker. His show opens March 15th at the Parish Art Museum.
This week: This show has everything, the Amanda Browder Show, Justin Cooper, Richard finally records a new outro, and some of the most annoying music ever used on BAS!!
NYC/Browder talks to Brooklyn based artist Justin Cooper. Post a few deadpan jokes, and moments of spacing out…(edited of course) we discuss his history of his work, and his installationSpreadsheet, and performance Mowers of Ten presented by the Art-In-Buildings program, and Monique Meloche Gallery. The project is in conjunction with The Armory Show that is going on next week.
Employing a strategy of “endless introducing,” Cooper plays both host and hosted, in an effort to eradicate the line between these two states. With the classic Charles and Ray Eames film, Powers of Ten, as inspiration, and Cooper’s installation, Spreadsheet serving as a backdrop, the performance aggregates comedic bits, routines, acts, sound fragments, free floating signifiers, and chains of non sequitors systematized into miniature narratives, into a simulation of comedy. Like “Friends” minus the laugh track or AstroTurf as a surrogate for suburban lawn, Mowers of Ten, highlights the impossibility of reconciling the intellectual with the visceral. “I know this isn’t funny…and yet.” “I know this isn’t grass…and yet.”
