This week: Patrica, Brian, and Duncan chat with one-of-a-kind private art dealer and fountain of knowledge Steven Leiber. Steven Leiber is most commonly known for operating Steven Leiber’s Basement which specializes in the sale of contemporary art and contemporary art documentation: artist’s books, artist’s ephemera, multiples, works on paper and reference materials. The conversation delves in to the history of Steven’s artist ephemera collections and the unique catalogs his endeavors produce. This episode is part of the series recorded this fall at Baer Ridgeway Exhibitions.
This week: Brian, Patricia and Duncan get into the mind of Lindsey White. They discuss the challenges of being a photographer in an image saturated-culture, light, magic, and the intimate details of White’s studio practice. Lindsey White is a San Francisco based photographer and video artist born in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This is the third interview in our series recorded at Baer Ridgeway Exhibitions as a part of Chris Duncan’s Eye Against Eye exhibition.
This week: The kick off of a series of programs recorded at Baer Ridgway Exhibitions in San Francisco during BAS’s mini residency as a guest of Chris Duncan during his “Eye Against I” exhibition. Brian and Duncan talk with Chris about the series, and then the main event Tammy Rae Carland! In addition to being a fascinating guest, Tammy is the only guest we’ve had who has a song written about them to utilize as their intro/outro clip (by the awesome band Bikini Kill no less).
