On this week’s harrowing tale of Art, Bad at Sports visits the Salt Shed for Shred the Shed, an event celebrating the latest release of Portable Gray, a biannual journal published by The University of Chicago Press.
This week Bad at Sports attempts to get to the bottom of whether foundation.app is a marketplace, a platform, or a cultural hall. Dana Bassett and Duncan MacKenzie are joined by Kayvon Tehranian, CEO and Lindsey Howard, Head of Community who are lighting our way towards how artists can get paid for their content while creating a new way to sell and consume art works, and just maybe, building a new internet in the meantime.
Duncan is trying to convince Lindsay to start a book club. If you’re interested slide something into his DMs.
Episode 770: Tom Burtonwood and Holly Holmes Terrain 2021, Sabina Ott, and NFT making and collecting
In what feels like a throwback episode Ryan and Duncan record IRL with Holly Holmes and Tom Burtonwood. We explore the legacy of Sabina Ott, the future for the Terrain Biennial and its 2021 iteration, then we talk through what is going on in their studios and focus around their exploration of the NFT artwork space.
This week on the B@S, Stella Brown and Nick Wylie join Jesse and Brian to talk about Buddy — the new artist-run shop/gallery/venue at the Chicago Cultural Center that features works and products by more than 220 artists — and Co-Prosperity Catskill — the new exhibition space in the Hudson Valley. These two new projects from the Public Media Institute, whose many many include WLPN, Lumpen Magazine, Lumpen TV and the Co-Prosperity space in Bridgeport, extend the ever-shifting and growing publicnesses that amplify, support and nurture so many artists and thinkers in our city. We talk about the realms of the possible, the concept of the public and end up making an ad (-vertisement and -vocacy) for Chicago in many acts.
