This week on Bad at Sports, Kera MacKenzie and Andrew Mausert-Mooney, the filmmakers behind Make A Distinction, join Jesse and the Block Museum’s Curator of Media Arts, Mike Metzger. Make A Distinction is an innovative, hybrid non-fiction feature that blends together strains of essayistic, observational and agitprop filmmaking into a blistering montage. Political in a capital P way, it’s urgent for most everyone, especially those of us in the so-called Chicago universe.
Rachel Adams joins us live from the halls of EXPO Chicago to talk about all things Bemis Art Center and the Omaha Art scene! We learn about art, llfe, and a little about love as we bounce across the house of yes, residencies, exhibitions and how your dream job might not be where you thought it would be but it is no less dreamy.
It’s the first week in April and that means its time for EXPO Chicago. Brian chats with the fair’s director Tony Karman about returning from the pandemic after two and a half years and how best to get into the art amid all the hubbub.
And for our second trick we bring in Kate Sierzputowski to chat EXPO programing, community engagement, and the Barely Fair!
Almost as jam packed as art weekend 2022!
