Episode 214: Constellations: A conversation with Julie Rodrigues Widholm, Wesley Kimler, Vera Klement and Paul “The Knife” Klein.

This week we talk Painting.

We assembled a crack team team of two Chicago painters (Wesley Kimler and Vera Klement), one Art Provocateur (Paul Klein), and a Curator from the MCA (Julie Rodrigues Widholm) and we talk painting and what makes the show “Constellations,” currently on display at the MCA, an important show for Chicago.

During the interview you will also hear the flock of parrots that inhabit Kimler’s studio and his daughter playing in the background, please do not be alarmed. You may also hear Duncan being made fun of for his love of Chris Wool, but if loving Wool is wrong, Duncan may never be right.
