Episode 214: Constellations: A conversation with Julie Rodrigues Widholm, Wesley Kimler, Vera Klement and Paul “The Knife” Klein.

This week we talk Painting.

We assembled a crack team team of two Chicago painters (Wesley Kimler and Vera Klement), one Art Provocateur (Paul Klein), and a Curator from the MCA (Julie Rodrigues Widholm) and we talk painting and what makes the show “Constellations,” currently on display at the MCA, an important show for Chicago.

During the interview you will also hear the flock of parrots that inhabit Kimler’s studio and his daughter playing in the background, please do not be alarmed. You may also hear Duncan being made fun of for his love of Chris Wool, but if loving Wool is wrong, Duncan may never be right. [Read more]

This week we return to Chicago’s magic love and check in with a few local heroes, Rob Davis and Michael Langlois. Fresh from shows in New York and Berlin, they have returned home to a run of great exhibitions starting with the Cultural Center in January and rolling up to the current 12 x 12 at the MCA. They join us to chat about painting, perspectives on art history, collaboration and show making in the contemporary context, while always draping one hand back to tradition.

The outro has a guest commentator with a message for Joseph Mohan. After that there is a special surprise for those who hang about for end of the credits. Or maybe not. I thought it was funny. [Read more]
