This episode we check in from New York City with two of New York’s bright lights, Carrie Gundersdorf (Teaching this summer at fan favorite summer residency, Ox-Bow) and Chloë Bass! We checked in several years ago from a boozy and brilliant NADA NYC! We talk painting and drawing, the price of eggs insurance type, compare New York and Chicago, light beyond the light and the low fi, while getting intimate and bureaucratic with our practices. And we all become Artworldees!
Episode 834, in which we creep back into the annals of our history and pull forth a conversation which had not seen the light before, Harold Mendez. Hero to many. We talk Whitney Biennial, Cuba, Tiffany’s, and just exactly how the art world works. Thank You NADA!
A few years ago, we put together so much content in the context of NADA art Fair Miami and New York that we have been sitting on a handful of great stuff (like for years)… And you are going to get to hear it all as we get prepared for Chicago’s EXPO this spring!
Kicking it all off this week Dana and Duncan chat with Miami legend, Agustina Woodgate.
Language lovers rejoice — the blab at sporkers transmit live to tape from the exhibition Glossolalia, hosted at ACRE (hosted by Drama Club) with our guests David Sprecher and Jeff Prokash. Their collaborative show, which performs a complicated material translation of an excerpt of a Franny Choi poem, is up through the weekend and includes a series of readings this Saturday (2/25/23) amidst and among their sculpture-phonemes. We talk about talking and think about thinking in what Zagat’s is calling “? ?r?li ?re?t ??ks??b???n … w?r? ?sik?? ænd ?si?? ?f ju hir w?t ?ts ?se??? ?ru ?bi?? sin …” and we’ll agree.
This week Duncan sits down with Paul Gray in front of a live audience at Columbia College Chicago to talk about the history of Gray Gallery, the legacy of Richard Gray, how “the sausage gets made” in the art world, 60 years of supporting artists and what the next 60 years will look like, and Marcel Proust?
