This episode from the now found hard drive of Bad at Sports. Alex Gingrow! From a NADA NYC of the past we share this great chat about aesthetics, time, angst, and text art hosted but Caroline Burghardt and Duncan MacKenzie, live from inside a Claire Ashley! Big thanks to Martin for editing support.
Today on Bad at Sports, live from inside EXPO Chicago, we try to get to the bottom of what the Monira Foundation is up to and what exactly it has to do with MANA Contemporary? So, we catch up with Anne Muntges, Director of Residencies and Grants Development. Then we are joined by the CEO of Apollo, Michael Miller and Chicago artist Sarah Raskey, and we look into the future of digital art delivery and what it would mean to have access to the world’s greatest collections from your home.

This week we check in with independent Curators International through Scott Vincent Campbell and Becky Nahom, and they break down the exciting curatorial connection event hosted through EXPO Chicago for the last five nine years. The conversation touches on the value of curators having an informal, yet art infused context in which to connect. All participants fail to recognize that the proper noun for a group of curators is a “hubris.” As in, “a hubris of curators approached the young artist.” This chat is a followed by LA based but Chicago drenched brilliant image maker John Knuth and we get down, full on EXPO style but with flies, as we tailgate our own booth and try to change the world one T-shirt at a time. EXPO Chicago in full effect.
This episode we return to the land of the lost episodes of Bad at Sports. As your friendly neighborhood art world podcasters return to action after a bit of a post EXPO meltdown, we are back in action. And in glorious preparation for NADA NYC we present two fantastic interviews we did in conjunction with NADA in Miami. Art world megaphone jaw dropper, Chloe Wise, breaks down art fashion and how we consume both and the ideas that trail in their wake. Kevin Arrow gets into what is lost as we turn away from Obsolete Media and the joy we can find in rediscovery.
Jennifer Reeder is back! It’s been a decade since our last conversation with the legendary Chicago filmmaker, artist and educator and she has been busy! Her newest feature, Perpetrator, features (the!) Alicia Silverstone and recently premiered at the Berlinale on its way back stateside. Together with Jesse and Brian, Jennifer gets into genre, the short as form and shape, her own personal journey through different mediums and more in a rolicking and fascinating conversation.
This week Amanda and Duncan return to the magic of the passed of Bad at Sports with a brilliant interview with Molly Zuckerman-Hartung! Zuckerman-Hartung kicked off this years set of Dialogoues at EXPO Chicago! And we return to a blissfully naive pre-pandemic artworld while physically celebrating the return to form of EXPO 2023! Editing support by Martin and we did this interview inside a Claire Ashley sculpture in NYC!
