This week: Adler Guerrier recorded in Miami at Pulse.
Also, only 50 shows left people! We are auctioning off slots to the highest bidders. The MCA will be hosting our party for Episoder 520, admittedly we haven’t actually asked them yet.
Adler Guerrier creates visual dialogue between a wunderkammer of materials and techniques. Guerrier improvises between form and function to nimbly subvert space and time in constructions of race, ethnicity, class, and culture. He calls upon the democratizing nature of collage and the authority of formal composition to designate to art history an axis of contemporary identity critique. Often chronicling the hybridity and juxtaposition in his immediate environs, Guerrier practices a contemporary flaneurie in an impending age of post-demography.
Adler Guerrier was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and lives and works in Miami, FL. Subsequent to studies at the New World School of the Arts in Miami, Florida, Guerrier has exhibited at the Miami Art Museum, and The Whitney Biennial 2008. His works can be found in public collections including the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, and the Studio Museum in Harlem, NY. His work has appeared in Art in America and The New York Times, among others.
Yes. It is true! We rocked Miami this year! It was an epic good time… Lives were changed. Bad decisions were made, but we all survived! Three cheers for the art carnival that is the Miami Basel weekend.
Dana has already done a great job of sharing the gonzo good time that is Miami andÂ you yourself will get a chance to hear what Bad at Sports did with Cannonball and PULSE, but probably not till February. Â In the mean time you will have to be contented with the knowledge that we made 6 gig posters with 6 incredible artists, we rocked the local air waves at 91.1 fm, knocked out 14 interviews over 4 days, and partied like rock stars.
Thanks go out to…
Chuck Loose and Iron Forge Press
Christian Kuras and Duncan MacKenzie
Dan Grzeca for making great posters!
(we sold a bunch but we have a few left which we will sell to you in January when everyone is back from the break. They are outstanding.)

Sure. 91.1 fm seems like a strange band width but we will never forget, you shouldn’t either.
