Bad at Sports is back with another “Fielding Practice” podcast produced especially for the Art21 Blog! We’ve been away for a couple of months working on a series of projects, most notably our summer residency/exhibition at Columbia College’s A+D Gallery (click here for details). If you’re in Chicago, come by the A+D Gallery tonight for our CLOSING FESTIVITIES and RECORD RELEASE PARTY! July 19, 5-8pm, 619 South Wabash Avenue.
On this month’s podcast, Duncan MacKenzie and Claudine Isé are joined by Bad at Sports co-founder Richard Holland. We discuss three exhibitions on view in Chicago this summer: Peripheral Views: States of America, at the Museum of Contemporary Photography; “Color Jam,” a summer-long, outdoor public installation by Jessica Stockholder (who is featured in the Season 3 episode “Play” of the Art in the Twenty-First Century series); and we also take a look at “Zachary Cahill: USSA 2012, The People’s Palace’s Gift Shop,” an exhibition-cum-intervention in what was once the giftshop at the Chicago Cultural Center.
