Ok, so you have listened to our BS for 127 episodes or so, so this
week we introduce an exciting new program for BAS. We will from
time to time invite guest curators on to put together an episode of
Bad at Sports. This week, Artist, Curator, Musician, Gallerist,
Radio Host and recipient of the 2007 Richard H. Driehaus Foundation
grant, Philip von Zweck does a show focused on the area from whence
he came, New Orleans.
Philip von Zweck grew up in Slidell Louisiana, a suburb of New
Orleans that was also devastated by Katrina. In January he
made his first trip back since the storm and took along a recorder
for Bad at Sports to find out what’s going on in New Orleans Art
and what’s up with Prospect.1, the first New Orleans Biennial
coming this fall. Along the way he spoke with Chris Deris, a high
school friend (BFA, Atlanta College of Art; MFA, RISD) who now
teaches Sculpture at Loyola University; New Orleans artist Blake
Boyd; Odgen Museum of Southern Art Curator David Houston; and
Cynthia Scott, an MFA student at Tulane and one of the organizers
of forthcoming artist initiatives responding to Prospect.1.
