In a wide ranging discussion with Haig Aivazian we start with the exhibition at Chicago's Renaissance Society and we reach toward the history of fire, policing, data visualization, sports and art, and why artists should not be afraid of making propaganda!

This week Ryan and Brian enter the dark room with Paul Mpagi Sepuya. The conversation floats along the inseparability of images and subcultures, the ritual of working an image in an analog dark room, and seeing exactly what is happening in the moment.

Naomi Beckwith form the MCA Chicago

On today’s episode of Bad at Sports Center, Dana and Duncan have the distinct pleasure of speaking with Naomi Beckwith, the current Museum of Contemporary Art Manilow Senior Curator and incoming Deputy Director and Jennifer and David Stockman Chief Curator of New York’s Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. We discuss Beckwith’s curatorial style, vision for her new position and and her recent work on the exhibition “Grief and Grievance: Art and Mourning in America,” originally conceived by the late Okwui Enwezor at the New Museum. All this and just a little bit of “T” to round out our latest. We hope you enjoy it, friend.
