Bad at Sports : Episode 12 Michelle Grabner!





Michelle Grabner! We show up with bagels and coffee to interview artist, critic, gallerist, teacher, and writer Michelle Grabner in her Oak Park Studio.

Michelle has written criticism for more magazines than I can comfortably count, and shown her work internationally. We talk about her career, the't find a decent solo show to review for Art Forum.

And as if that discussion isn't enough to fuel thoughtful conversation for weeks and provide enough grist for the intellectual mill, Duncan and I review current shows. And, for the first time, we completely, utterly, and collectively dislike something!

We review the Hyde Park Art Center's new show of James Faulkner's work, the Smart Museum's exhibition Beyond Green: Toward a Sustainable Art, the Illinois State Museum Chicago Gallery's show Art in the Abstract, and the Renaissance Society's exhibition All the Pretty Corpses.
