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.

And as always, our panelists’ picks for the events we’re most looking forward to seeing in the coming months:
Richard Holland: Sic Transit Gloria Mundi: Industry of the Ordinary, a mid-career survey of the Chicago artists’ collective held in the main exhibition hall at the Chicago Cultural Center, August 17, 2012 – February 17, 2013.
Duncan MacKenzie: Skyscraper: Art and Architecture Against Gravity, at the MCA Chicago, June 30-September 23, 2012.
Thanks so much for listening!
