    Bad at Sports Episode 805: Maryam Taghavi

    This week Maryam Taghavi casts a spell over Brian and Duncan. Will they recover? We don't know. What we know is this... Taghavi plays and pulls codes at the edge of beauty and language. What about languages beyond languages? In her work she uses and recreates a language of the occult practices derived from Islamic mysticism. Her sigils promise to evoke real and active metaphysical powers. These forms become channels, lovely and beyond form itself – concept to volition, presence to absence. The works are a wish invoked. The conversation a wish fulfilled. Will Brian and Duncan ever be the same?

    Bad at Sports Episode 804: Azadeh Gholizadeh

    The Bad at Sports crew is joined by Azadeh Gholizadeh. Her works explore the body, landscape, and the fragmentation of memory. Her works use weaving and needle work to generate and worry her images and objects. The works call to mind a powerful connection to place and dismantle that connection through a glitchy digital memory and build towards a reassembled experience. Azadeh Gholizadeh is a Chicago-based artist and educator, and a 2022 Artadia awardee.

    Bad at Sports Episode 802: Inga Danysz and Haynes Riley

    On today’s harrowing episode of Bad at Sports Center the we are back in the WLPN studio (and we brought our old mixing board bumbles with us)! Polish-born artist, Inga Danysz, and gallerist, Hayes Riley, join Jesse and Ryan to discuss Danysz’s solo exhibition In Ancient Rome at Good Weather. We discuss the materiality and ontology of Danysz’s sculptural sarcophagi, and our orientation to the physical and metaphysical space they delineate. We also accept the fact that puns have been and will continue to be a part of our process.

    Bad at Sports Episode 801: Jeffrey Michael Austin

    Everything Must Go, so let’s. Jeffrey Michael Austin — interdisciplinary artist and musician — joins Ryan Peter Miller and Jesse Something Malmed to talk about their reflective new exhibition at the Chicago Art Department. Hope in the dark, illusion, allusion, elusiveness, late capitalism, climate crisis, the collective, the needing-tending, the tenderness of a phrase like *help wanted* and enduring questions of scale and capacity guide our winding conversation. What else?
