Episode: 594 Candida Alvarez
In this episode we track the musings and mellifluous tones of Candida Alvarez. Her retrospective is at the Chicago Cultural Center, her work has been included in the Kemper Survey of contemporary abstraction, and her work with COMME des GARÇONS is just about to drop!
We trace the ins and outs of domesticity, abstraction, hallucinatory practices, poetics, Bruce Rauner’s policies towards art and education, and the current Michael Bonesteel controversy at SAIC.

Episode 593: Third Object
This shiny new episode of Bad @ Sports Center spotlights curator Raven Munsell. We chat about her latest curatorial project with 3rd Object, titled Sneaker Boy Dreams, from artist Ashley Teamer. Munsell also sheds some light on the ACRE inspired exhibit at Heaven Gallery, Summer Sessions, before we dive deep into all that is ACRE. And finally, the light at the end of this illuminating tunnel, is a discussion of the dearly departed, bumper sticker bonanza, Trunk Show. All this and not a single bad word.
