Bad at Sports
Bad At Sports is a weekly podcast about contemporary art. Founded in 2005, badatsports.com focuses on presenting the practices of artists, curators, critics, dealers, various other arts professionals through an online audio format.
This week Brian and Patricia sit down with curator Tanya Zimbardo during her residency at Krowswork, a center for Video and Visionary Art, in Oakland. Tanya is a San Francisco-based curator. Her research and writing is primarily centered on conceptual art and experimental media in California in the 1970s and 1980s. She is co-curating the group survey Public WorksArtists' Interventions 1970s - Now at Mills College Art Museum this fall. As the Assistant Curator of Media Arts at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, she curated select film and video screenings and co-organized the past two SECA Art Award exhibitions and overview Fifty Years of Bay Area Art: The SECA Awards, among other exhibitions. She has contributed essays to several SFMOMA publications, most recently West Coast Visions(2015, Borusan Contemporary, Istanbul). As a guest contributor to Open Space (2012‒14), Zimbardo highlighted various site works, public interventions, and artist-run spaces in the Bay Area, including Receipt of Delivery, her weekly series featuring exhibition mailers.
 
The Krowswork Residencies feature a diverse range of visionary artists and artwork—from graffiti to poetry and from elaborate sci-fi video installations to Kabalistic painting. These Krowswork Residents present their own work, host conversations and events, and in some cases present the work of others. Each Resident is implicitly or explicitly in conversation with those who come before and after, as well as in dialogue with the total arc of the year.
