Bad at Sports Episode 148: Mary Rachel Fanning/ Diane Grams

This week:

First, some generally embarrassing banter, Duncan discusses his dance career, we talk about Richard's terminal nerd-dom, and eventually introduce the show. Brian and Richard have announcements

Second, Terri and Serena interview artist Mary Rachel Fanning about her many and varied projects.

Third, Duncan talks to Diane Grams about her book "Entering Cultural Communities: Diversity and Change in the Nonprofit Arts".

Next, more silliness in the closing, and then, you sit and wait until next Sunday where we send more wackiness your way.

Bad at Sports Episode 147: Pamela Fraser and Randall Szott This week Duncan and Richard are joined by guest host Tony Tasset to talk to Pamela Fraser and Randall Szott about their work, arguing and their project he said-she said.

From their web site: http://hesaid-shesaid.us

he said-she said is an exhibition and event series held in the home of Pamela Fraser and Randall Szott. They will take turns presenting what amounts to an ongoing conversation about art and culture - Ms. Fraser presenting art and artists, and Mr. Szott sharing the activities of people who work in other contexts. Together they hope to offer up a fun and thoughtful take on current ideas in art and life.

Richard makes Duncan feel bad. Much mirth is had by all.

Bad at Sports Episode 146: Art Basel

A Bad at Sports Basel Art Fair Overdose!

The intro and outro are extra creepy this week. Highlights(?) include Duncan talking about some fantasy involving wearing tight short shorts and Teena McClelland!!! Tom Burtonwood interrupts the recording by shooting rubber bands. Chaos!

After Richard and Duncan are done making a mess of things, the real pros come in and present a fantastic report from Basel.

Lamis El Farra, emerging artist, and the EuroShark Mark Staff Brandl, seemingly perennially emerging black sheep artist, traverse and discuss the entirety of the King of Art Fairs, Art Basel. Yes: the Fair Itself, Art Statements, Art Unlimited, Scope, and the Solo Project. They only missed Liste and Print Basel. Sorry, but all the rest was already enough. Of course they were at the VIP opening (ahem) and managed to talk to more people than you can shake a stick at: artists, gallerists, museum directors, curators, critics, art magazine editors, fair organizers, all the hangers-on, …er…, important elements of the international artworld.
