This week we return to Chicago’s magic love and check in with a few local heroes, Rob Davis and Michael Langlois. Fresh from shows in New York and Berlin, they have returned home to a run of great exhibitions starting with the Cultural Center in January and rolling up to the current 12 x 12 at the MCA. They join us to chat about painting, perspectives on art history, collaboration and show making in the contemporary context, while always draping one hand back to tradition.

The outro has a guest commentator with a message for Joseph Mohan. After that there is a special surprise for those who hang about for end of the credits. Or maybe not. I thought it was funny. Read more

Looks like former BAS guest Chad Kouri of The Post Family will be speaking on a panel at the Cultural Center. This looks like it is worth checking out.

“There’s a wide world of opportunity outside of galleries and many artists are making a full time living by diversifying their practices. Three Chicago artists and an on line gallerist explain how they do it. Lynn Basa (moderator) creates works that adapt in setting and scale from intimate studio paintings to site specific public art commissions in terrazzo and mosaic.

She is the author of The Artist’s Guide to Public Art: How to Find and Win Commissions. Nikko Moy is the curator of Ashes & Milk, an online gallery founded on the premise that a lot can be made from very little. Lee Tracy is an artist who explores many mediums and formats of expression to make varied points that resonate from one voice. Local insomniac Chad Kouri of The Post Family is a freelance illustrator and Art Director of Proximity Magazine.”
