Bad at Sports Episode 163: San Francisco Fall 2008 San Francisco Fall Review Freak Out

San Francisco is haunted by illusions of Sarah Palin, icebergs, and the Wicked Witch of the West! This week, Brian and Patricia sit down with guest critic Clare Haggarty to discuss the new fall gallery openings. Unfortunately, the political and economic zietgiest invades their thinking as they digress into conversations of conceptual economics, election politics, and the Wizard of Oz. Galleries reviewed include the Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art, Ampersand International Arts, Ping Pong, New Langton, Ratio 3, Marx & Zavattero, Jack Hanley, Haines Gallery, Southern Exposure, Queens Nails Projects, and more!
