On this month’s episode of Fielding Practice, Bad at Sports’ co-founder Richard Holland joins Duncan MacKenzie, Dan Gunn and Ime for our regular roundtable discussion about art, culture, and related happenings in Chicago. Duncan provides a brief report on this year’s Open Engagement, an annual conference addressing current issues in art and social practice; and we discuss the current survey of William J. O’Brien’s ceramic sculptures at The Renaissance Society (May 15-June 26, 2011). The discussion is a little more rowdy than usual, so hang on and hang in there and as always, thanks so much for listening!
