This week we present literally exactly what happened when Duncan did this:

EXPO VIDEO | Alfredo Cramerotti In Conversation
Featuring Alfredo Cramerotti, Director | MOSTYN and 2015 EXPO VIDEO Curator Malerie Marder, Artist and Cauleen Smith, Artist. Moderated by Duncan MacKenzie, Bad at Sports

Internationally acclaimed curator in film, video and new media Alfredo Cramerotti will be in conversation with Bad at Sports discussing the 2015 EXPO VIDEO program. Based in the UK, Cramerotti's work explores the relationship between reality and representation across TV, radio, publishing, critical writing, photography and curatorial exhibitions. His research includes the theory and practice of “aesthetic journalism,” a concept he created to investigate the relationship between contemporary exhibitions and elements of interview, documentary and reportage.

Bad at Sports Episode 527: Hou Redux

Bad at Sports finishes our 5 episode look back with a return to the cultural impact of Hou Hanru. He casts a shadow that has only grown longer in the 8 years since we originally aired this interview. We are excited to return to his thinking right after his appointment to the Guggenheim as Consulting Curator to The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Chinese Art Initiative.
