59:12This week we bring several things never meant to meet, together. EXPO Chicago and the artist featured in Hyde Park Art Center’s booth: Farah Salem and Regina Agu. We explore personal and historic cultural lineages, trauma response, and alternative cultural teachings as they bridge the space between research and practice. Then we jump over to our dear friends at A Very Serious Gallery and Allan Weinberger and we dance through graffiti, “high art”, kissing booths and a plea for love. All in all a single amazing day from the heartland’s greatest art fair. And don't think we didn't notice that Frieze bought it. We are just as curious as you are. See you next time Internet.

Bad at Sports Episode 851: Kevin Demery
59:09Welcome back to a monster week at Bad at Sports. (We took an unscheduled vacation in August [cringe emoji]. This week we drop three shows the first of which is episode 851 from Kansas City with Kevin Demery. A great conversation about art, life, and the intersection of race and justice. This conversation is amongst several you will hear in the next few weeks are brought to you through the support of Charlotte Street Foundation in Kansas City, where they are doing a remarkable job of bedrock-ing the Kansas City art world and its artists. You should also know that you can expect us back on the radio on Wednesday with an episode from Expo Chicago. Excitingly, EXPO just sold to Freize and what that portends for our local International Art Fair, we will do our best to find out. And, this Friday we will drop a third show with Andrew Mcilvaine who is currently doing an exhibition with our friend and now your’s Kevin Demery. Our friend Duncan. (He works here.) Is also hoping that we will let you know about an opportunity he and a West Coast artist and theorist, Ted Hiebert (former guest of the show) are hosting at the College Art Association conference in February 2024. They are hosting a panel on post-rational visuality and all that that could mean. How do we re situate human-ness now (post-ai, hyper bureaucratized, justly, and constantly observed and ordered), and what can those parts of being human which don't feel rational or computable mean to us? How do we foreground them? What kinds of art allow us to get enough intellectual space that we can reflect on these conditions? If you've got ideas about a human future through art, they've got the panel for you.
