Bad at Sports Episode 769: Buddy, Co-Pro Catskills, and what is happening at the Public Media Institute
This week on the B@S, Stella Brown and Nick Wylie join Jesse and Brian to talk about Buddy — the new artist-run shop/gallery/venue at the Chicago Cultural Center that features works and products by more than 220 artists — and Co-Prosperity Catskill — the new exhibition space in the Hudson Valley. These two new projects from the Public Media Institute, whose many many include WLPN, Lumpen Magazine, Lumpen TV and the Co-Prosperity space in Bridgeport, extend the ever-shifting and growing publicnesses that amplify, support and nurture so many artists and thinkers in our city. We talk about the realms of the possible, the concept of the public and end up making an ad (-vertisement and -vocacy) for Chicago in many acts.

On today’s episode Dana and Ryan join painter Christina Quarles [in person!] to discuss her eponymous exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. We talk painting (of course), and discuss pandemic cancellations and inspirations. We hope you enjoy the sound of face-to-face conversation and Christina’s giggles as much as we enjoyed recording them.
