This week in the studio, we enter the virtual cave of sculptor, Daniel G. Baird. Dana and Ryan join Daniel in traversing the temporal expanse, dragging the prehistoric into the hyperreality of the Anthropocene. We muse on the museological and disambiguate our guest from his 90’s roots rock alter ego. Daniel’s current solo exhibition, “on the water,” is on display at New York’s Grimm
Gallery and is additionally featured in “Unthought Environments,” at the Renaissance Society.
Misael Soto joins Bad at Sports Center to discuss “Provisional Obstruction,” a public sculptural work in collaboration with Ayesha Singh outside of ACRE Projects. We delve into Soto’s history of creating monumentally mundane sculpture and their Chicago origin story. DJ Younger Brother puts us into context as we discuss performance, gentrification, and giant beach towels all in this weeks episode.
Claire Ashley! Painter Sculptor? Party human? We celebrate women on this the day of WOMEN striking!
My work pivots around the ways in which actual physical phenomenon resonate metaphorically with thought and how we find meaning. Sight is blurred when the eye and body are moving and what we see is crisp and clear when our bodies are static. Our peripheral vision enters this continuum. Tending to the limits of our capacity lets us know more about what’s out there.
