Bad at Sports
Bad At Sports is a weekly podcast about contemporary art. Founded in 2005, badatsports.com focuses on presenting the practices of artists, curators, critics, dealers, various other arts professionals through an online audio format.

Today on Bad at Sportscenter, Jesse and Ryan are joined by some of the stars that form the constellation that post-latin-loqui astroscholars are calling This Is What We Know So Far, an exhibition open now at Chicago Art Department: artists Liz McCarthy, Sara Condo, Leo Kaplan and curator Erin Nixon. Along with Chicago faves Mike Lopez and Ben Driggs, they’ve mounted a colorful and joutous show dealing with process, the new now and the messiness of the moment. The conversation is lovely and the show even lovelier.
