This week we come at you live from Printed Matter in New York City with Christopher Sperandio of the Kartoon Kings. We talk about his recent flurry of publications, how the pandemic has impacted publishing and the art world, the potency of Instagram, and the failure of NFTs.
Episode 829: Meg Duguid, Brandon Alvendia, Nick Wylie Post-MDW Local Organizer Rectangle Table Discussion
Wowow! Around an arts and crampy table in an anonymous but lively third space in the Southern Loop of Chicago, some of our top minds and movers convene to chat about past, present and futures of Chicago DIY/DIT artist-organizing. Jesse, Duncan and eventually Ryan — slouches in their own rights — lead by following a disparate flow. A champagne bottle to share with 300 people! Leave a masterpiece, take a masterpiece! Should everything become a library? These notions and more are offered up in a freewheeling conversation that’s not to be missed.
This week Brian and Duncan muse about color with design duo Luftwerk. The Chicago-based collaborative Petra Bachmaier & Sean Gallero entrance us into their series of sculptural light installations using botanical pigments and dynamic lights currently on view at the Chicago Cultural Center.
