In this episode we track the musings and mellifluous tones of Candida Alvarez. Her retrospective is at the Chicago Cultural Center, her work has been included in the Kemper Survey of contemporary abstraction, and her work with COMME des GARÇONS is just about to drop!

We trace the ins and outs of domesticity, abstraction, hallucinatory practices, poetics, Bruce Rauner’s policies towards art and education, and the current Michael Bonesteel controversy at SAIC.
