    Bad at Sports Episode: 604 Matthew Girson

    Oak Park Brawl- Rauschenberg vs. Johns. Who would win in a fight? What if they were underwater? What if they were in the dark? What if they were on a white canvas with a white ground? Who know? Matthew Girson knows. We use a division between these two legendary painters to inform and interrogate the practice of Local Hero Matthew Girson! Woot! I think he was grateful when we left.
