The latest episode of “Fielding Practice,” the Chicago-centric podcast/gabfest featuring Duncan MacKenzie, Dan Gunn and me has just been posted on the Art21 Blog as part of Bad at Sports’ ongoing Centerfield column. Â This week, regular panelists Duncan MacKenzie, Dan Gunn and I discussÂ the demise of Next/Art Chicagoâ€“which up until last week had been the USâ€™ longest-running art fair â€“and the subsequent rise of Expo, a new Chicago-based art fair slated to debut on Navy Pier in September 2012. We also review current exhibitions byÂ Laura Letinsky at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, andÂ Molly Zuckerman-Hartung, whoseÂ showÂ Negative JoyÂ is on view at Corbett vs. DempseyÂ gallery, plus we offer some â€œbest betâ€ picks for the coming month in Chicago. As an added bonus, this week we keep the conversation blissfully short, at a running time of approximately 38 minutes â€” as always, thank you so much for tuning in!
