First: Shannon and Duncan talk Robert Reinard, Program Director, Collections & Exhibitions and Amanda Curtis, Program Director, Education from Intuit.

Intuit is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1991. Our mission is to promote public awareness, understanding, and appreciation of intuitive and outsider art through a program of education and exhibition.

Toward this end, Intuit strives to discover, document, maintain, preserve, exhibit, and collect examples of intuitive and outsider art; and to operate a permanent facility in which to pursue such activities.

Intuit defines “intuitive and outsider art” as work of artists who demonstrate little influence from the mainstream art world and who seem instead motivated by their unique personal visions. This includes what is known as art brut, non-traditional folk art, self-taught art, and visionary art.

Next: Terri and Joanna talk to Gretchen Kalwinski and Eugenia Williamson from Literago.org

Literago.org is intended as a portal to news and information about literary goings-on in and around Chicago. The site features a curated calendar with a corresponding weekly newsletter, news and photos, post-event write-ups, and the occasional essay about the state of literature in Chicago.

James Elkins
Duncan talks with James Elkins about globalism, imperialism’s and all sorts of lighthearted stuff. This is audio that was recorded this summer at The Stone Theory Institute’s first iteration; 2007: The Globalization of Art, co-organized with Zhivka Valiavicharska.

Bad At Sports sat in on the whole thing and has pretty much every second on tape. We will be posting five sections over the next month or two as raw audio with a short introduction by Elkins himself. These will not be the polished “podio” that you have been used too but for those of you academically inclined it will be freaking awesome…

check the blog regularly as we will update with out notice.

We have a James Elkins original picture of all the scholars involved with their names for download at…http://www.badatsports.com/megsmagic/2007-panorama.jpg

The show opens with an indictment of Duncan’s mean-ness.
