This week: Lisa Boyle talks about her gallery’s recent move. She schools our listeners on how emerging artists should and should not approach galleries. She tells us about the fascinating game(?) Bird Horse Muffin which totally blows Richard and Duncan’s tiny little minds.
Michael Benedetto: our new 30 second film critic reviews The Proposition.
Richard, Duncan and Amanda review shows at Kavi Gupta, Carrie Secrist (during which Richard apologizes to Missy), they talk about why they were mystified by their shabby treatment at Kraft/Lieberman gallery AND why Mark Rowland of Rowland Contemporary knows how to treat gallery patrons right, and lastly Kasia Kay Art Projects Gallery. The phrase “Shitty Drawing” is thrown around way way way WAY too much. Wow.
Richard interviews Amanda Browder, Chris Walla, Aris Georgiades and Gail Simpson about Art 44/46: Curated by Stuart Keeler, Art 44/46 is a public art exhibition that will be featuring a variety of artists who are showing pieces publicly. Some are performances, some are sculptural pieces, some are video installations, etc.!
All in the 44th and 46th Wards of Chicago. The wards are roughly between Clark and Broadway (and up Broadway) , and Belmont and Diversey. Please check the website for more info.
Chicago Artists Month kicks off! Amanda and Richard go to the opening shindig at the Cultural Center and review the shows there-in, Richard confirms his lack of interest in photography, Amanda says “Op-Art” 92 times, everyone loves Ukrainian Modernism! Woo Hoo!
In memory o….I mean in the absence of Duncan we pulled an archival book review, Joanna Topor and Book Guru Terry Griffith discuss Duncan’s love of “Witchy Librarians” and the iconoclastic book WINKIE by Clifford Chase, an Orlando-esque tale of a stuffed bear accused of crimes he/she did not commit.
Superstar Brian Andrews hums Randy Newman and goes and checks out art in Los Angeles(where oddly enough we have a solid listener base).
Tom Scharpling from The Best Show on WFMU makes a guest appearance.
What happened to Duncan? Who knows.
Amanda, Duncan and Richard talk to Collectors and swell hosts Curt and Jennifer Conklin. Rapping! Ranting!!
The Residency is coming soon!
On this week’s show Duncan and Richard talk to Gregory Knight Deputy Commissioner/Visual Arts of the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs. Kathryn Born interviews Brian Shannon on the wild and wacky world of insuring art collections. Big Red and Shiny checks in from Boston. Brian Andrews talks about the East Bay. Jason Dunda is on for a minute or so to make fun of incoming art undergrads and Duncan and Richard as they played docent for his first year students! It’s like 8 shows rolled into one!
NOTE: Duncan loves the US of A and doesn’t really want to relive the war of 1812, it’s just that Richard’s Canada bashing hurts his soft dandy-ish soul.
