    Bad at Sports Episode 658: Lit y Luz

    Dana hosts solo on this episode of Bad at Sports Center featuring curators Esteban King of Espac in Mexico City and Mia Lopez of the DePaul Art Museum, alongside artists Tamara Becerra Valdez and Alejandro Jiménez Flores. Our guests bring us into their textually inspired exhibition “So close, far away” (Tan cerca, tan lejos) which opens Saturday, October 13th at Sector 2327. Sector’s last ever exhibition, “So close, far away” is presented in partnership with the Lit y Luz Festival, celebrating and exchanging culture between Mexico City and Chicago. Our guests discuss the discursive and experiential aspects of the show, and Alejandro treats us to a short poetry reading. We threw in a little gossip at the end just for fun. More information about “So close, far away” and Lit y Luz can be found at https://www.litluz.org/

     

    Super special thank you & shout out to Julie Wi for helping us produce this episode!

    Live from the patio of the Oakland Museum!

    Artist, organizer, spiritualist Brett Cook enlightens us on the structure of dialogue and how we as artists can provide platforms for others. we also stared towards the negotiation of power relationships within the visual and the social. We also wrestle with how an audience can more completely understand artists and their production.

    All of us struggle with validation in the context of separation and exclusion.

    KT Hawbaker is a fiercely Midwestern harpy who accidentally became an arts journalist. A graduate of the University of Iowa and SAIC, they cover Chicago’s visual art and theater communities, while writing longer features on LGBTQ+ lives and femme healthcare. When they aren’t at the Tribune, they produce a sex-positive zine called “pill magazine” and a queer podcast entitled “A Fairy Home Companion.”

    Susan Snodgrass is a Chicago-based critic and editor of ARTMargins Online. Much of her writing is devoted to alternative models of critical practice and art making, whether exploring new genres of public art or contemporary art in Eastern Europe. Her blog, In/Site: Reflections on the Art of Place, explores art, architecture, and urbanism. She has written for both print and online publications for over 30 years, most notably for Art in America, for which she served as a Corresponding Editor, and more recently for Textile: Cloth and Culture and The SEEN. Her book on the experimental architecture of Ken Isaacs, published by Half Letter Press, is forthcoming in late 2018.
