This week: THE AMANDA BROWDER SHOW!
Amanda talks to Nick Lucking and Tim Ivison about www.spcmkr.com and their various projects.
SPCMKR facilitates and documents space exchanges, providing a site through which to organize a gift-economy between users. The web-based component of the project provides an interface for locating and contributing resources, arranging for temporarily inhabiting surplus spaces, and documenting both the exchange and the activities that occur while in residence. SPCMKR is a way in which to proliferate small everyday surpluses, allowing for flexible, friendly opportunities, rather than engaging with government or institutional power structures. SPCMKR should be understood not as a residency to which you apply but rather as a network in which you can contribute and benefit from the exchange of resources.
This week Patricia and Brian chat with Lawrence Rinder, currently the director of the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive. Previously he was the Dean at California College of the Arts, curated for the Whitney Museum of American Art, and founded the Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art at CCA. He has curated numerous exhibitions including the 2002 Whitney Bienial. In this conversation, they discuss BAMPHA’s new building, arts education, the future of the museum, and the Bay Area art community. At the end Larry agrees to come back on the show in the future to discuss all the curatorial projects in his past thay didn’t have time to discuss. [Read more]

This week a sick Duncan MacKenzie bumbles his way through a dramatic and sweeping discussion with Mark Napier.Â They speak of “Net Art,” its less then stellar critics, and how we think about these new kinds of cultural products.
Napier was an early pioneer of net art and is still charting it’s future at Potatoland.org.Â His interview is followed by Terri and Joanna discussing the new book “Dirty Words: A Literary Encyclopedia of Sex” by Ellen Sussman.
The intro is a gem.
