This week: We talk to Carl Baratta and Oli Watt and we actually run this interview unlike when we did this last year.
Big news! ACRE is moving to a bigger and better location!
You are among the first to know, and I am reaching out to you for help making our ambitious vision a reality. ACRE has already received a generous donation to cover a portion of the building renovation cost. In addition, we are launching a Kickstarter Campaign to raise the remaining $20,000 needed to realize our plans for the new space. We are hopeful that our campaign, which was specially selected by Art Basel’s Crowdfunding jury, will garner both financial and community support for the project. We softly launched our fundraiser today and will begin promoting the campaign publicly on May 25th.
I sincerely hope you will consider helping ACRE take this crucial step in our development. I’ve always felt that ACRE has an uncanny knack for being able to accomplish a lot with very little. I can’t wait to show you what we are capable of with a new and improved home base.
Sincerely and With Great Excitement,
PS- If you are interested in making a significant contribution outside of the campaign please feel free to contact me.

This week we chase down the beauty of drawing, the perils of the 501c3, the question of economy and the base matter of humor, all with the brilliant Edgar Arceneaux. Duncan Mackenzie is joined Amanda Browder, Amy Mooney, and Abigail Satinsky live from inside a tent at Open Engagement 2014. Why did it take so long to post? Because it did.

This week we bring together artist who work with war, teaching, and infrastructure for a discussion about what the hell we think we are doing when we blend art and politics. We welcome Michael Rakowitz, Abigail Satinsky, and Jim Duignan! Thanks to EXPO Chicago for handing us the space and context for having the discussion live in 2014 and now brought to you via tape or more correctly, silicon.
