Are we too hung up on artist from the 80’s?

Are you wrong for holding a day job? Is Pollock mainstream?

Is Death Cab for Cutie lame compared to the Postal Service? Why is Lane so hung up on ties?

Is Amanda pregnant? Does Richard have three weeks to live? Will Duncan ever be allowed to use the mic?

All of these questions and so much more talked about in this action packed sequel to Episode 32.

Michelle Grabner! We show up with bagels and coffee to interview artist, critic, gallerist, teacher, and writer Michelle Grabner in her Oak Park Studio.

Michelle has written criticism for more magazines than I can comfortably count, and shown her work internationally. We talk about her career, the’t find a decent solo show to review for Art Forum.

And as if that discussion isn’t enough to fuel thoughtful conversation for weeks and provide enough grist for the intellectual mill, Duncan and I review current shows. And, for the first time, we completely, utterly, and collectively dislike something!

We review the Hyde Park Art Center’s new show of James Faulkner’s work, the Smart Museum’s exhibition Beyond Green: Toward a Sustainable Art, the Illinois State Museum Chicago Gallery’s show Art in the Abstract, and the Renaissance Society’s exhibition All the Pretty Corpses.

Holy guacamole it’s my freaking birthday, my landlord is making me move my studio, and we STILL get the show out early. That’s quality people, trauma, mirth and on time. When choosing podcasts remember who loves ya baby, we don’t make you wait three weeks between shows like lots of the other bush league podcasters out there in I-pod land. Duncan and I sit, huddled under a bare bulb, humming “working in a coal mine” and get our shit out in short order. Golly.

Okay, anyway. This week, Chicago art legend Paul Klein, Duncan reviews a book and rants about the oppression of pest fowl, I counterpoint, and west coast bureau chief Brian Andrews checks in with his first report. Damn, that’s a lot of quality art reporting.

As this is the temp show note posted in the 8:00 a.m. hour no links as of yet, but eventually Duncan will get to it. Although, I am making him accompany me to the comic book convention today, so he has an excuse.

Lastly, spread the damn word already, we want thousands of adoring fans fawning at us instead of the measly hundreds we have now.

Happy Halloween.
