Ep. 103 Art History with Ashley Patton
Ashley M. Patton is a PhD candidate in the department of Art History and holds a minor in Early Modern Studies. Her research interests include early modern Italian sculpture, gender, religion, and materiality. Her dissertation project, titled "Tangible Women: Marble Sculptures of Female Saints in Seventeenth-Century Rome," explores the construction of early modern gender in post-Tridentine Rome by examining how sculptors employed different typologies of white marble sculpture in sacred spaces to present archetypal, yet largely inimitable models of the early modern, ideal Christian woman. She is also interested in the global impact of early modern Catholicism, including the trans-Atlantic relationships between Italy and the Americas in the seventeenth century. Ashley is currently the Joseph F. McCrindle Foundation Curatorial Intern in the department of Sculpture and Decorative Arts at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Prior to her doctoral studies, she worked at the J. Paul Getty Museum as a Graduate Intern and the Getty Research Institute as a Research Assistant. She has also contributed to multiple museum exhibitions, including “Turkish Rugs on Tudor Walls: 16th Century Trade between England and the Islamic World” at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, and “Albrecht Dürer: Master of the Black Line” at the Huntington Library.

Ep.98 The Year Time Stopped
The Year Time Stopped The Global Pandemic in Photos By Christina Hawatmeh, Nour Chamoun Curated by the founders of Scopio, a community-based image marketplace, a stunning and unforgettable visual history that captures the world’s response to major events that defined 2020: the COVID pandemic and the sweeping movements for racial and social justice. In 2020, the world experienced massive change. Millions of lives were ended—and millions more upended—by the Covid-19 pandemic. The shocking police killings of Black men and women gave rise to powerful social movements and widespread collective action to rectify centuries of injustice and racism in the United States and globally. Together, these three colossal events tested the resilience of the social fabric bringing us all together. Attempting to illuminate and make sense of this new reality, photographers from around the world documented these transformational moments as they unfolded. Carefully combing through their archive, the founders of Scopio have curated these photographs to tell the story of the year 2020. It began with a collective sense of isolation and fear to eventually people coming together and protesting the social injustices that were uncovered later that year. Representing artists from around the globe, The Year Time Stopped seeks to empower us and give credence to the extraordinary circumstances that changed our world. The 200 images in this striking visual collection are indelible, impassioned, and unforgettable. Taken together, they are a singular testament to this unprecedented time.

Ep. 96 Xxavier Edward Carter
“Carter (born 1986, Dallas, Texas) is a transdisciplinary artist with a BFA from Stanford University and an MFA from Southern Methodist University. His work is presented as videos, publications, installations, and performances to encompass multi-sensorial and layered circumstances encountered by the artist. Personal interactions, media bombardment, observed and lived experiences, and material excess/waste influence his work towards a complex revolutionary promise. These are ecologically centered works often heavily linked to the material history of currency in how it relates to the histories of marginalized people. Carter is of Black and Native American heritage and views his work as a continuation of the survival and storytelling practices of these cultures. More broadly, he is interested in how these practices have analogies across cultures worldwide. Stories of origins, the afterlife, superhuman beings, and of love and tragedy are the most compelling for him. Carter creates work dealing with what these stories mean in an often violent and oppressive context and the power they have toward influencing revolutionary momentum.” https://xxavieredwardcarter.wordpress.com/about/

Ep 95 Art in Odd Places
Art in Odd Places (AiOP) presents visual and performance art in unexpected public spaces. AiOP also produces an annual festival along 14th Street in Manhattan, NYC from Avenue C to the Hudson River each October. https://artinoddplaces.org/story/ Mission Art in Odd Places aims to stretch the boundaries of communication in the public realm by presenting artworks in all disciplines outside the confines of traditional public space regulations. AiOP reminds us that public spaces function as the epicenter for diverse social interactions and the unfettered exchange of ideas. History Art in Odd Places (AiOP) began as an action by a group of artists led by Ed Woodham to encourage local participation in the Cultural Olympiad of the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. In 2005, after moving back to New York City, he re imagined it as a response to the dwindling of public space and personal civil liberties – first in the Lower East Side and East Village, and since 2008, on 14th Street in Manhattan. AiOP has always been a grassroots project fueled by the goodwill and inventiveness of its participants. AiOP 2022: STORY OPEN CALL FOR PROPOSALS Art in Odd Places invites proposals for its seventeenth annual public art and performance festival taking place along 14th Street in Manhattan, NY – from Avenue C to the Hudson River this fall. “Obstacles are put in our way, not to stop us, but to call out our courage and strength.” ― Unknown Today, public personal merit is based on the number of followers on social media – and relevance changes with the shifting weather. True identity and community are where words are genuinely heard, truths shared, stories told, and perceptions possibly changed. Is it feasible to change others’ perceptions? Finding meaning in life is a collective universal truth. The pursuit of meaning can be lost in the static of the passionate necessity to search. One’s narrative writes itself. Every insurmountable obstacle, laugh, devastation, tear, scar, heartbreak, familiarity, and inexperience is a chapter. If executed with fearless honesty and mindful intent – change is possible. Will the story of your existence endure the test of time? Art in Odd Places(AiOP) 2022: STORY scheduled for September 23-25, 2022, curated by Jessica Elaine Blinkhorn invites proposals for its seventeenth annual public art and performance festival taking place along 14th Street in Manhattan, NY – from Avenue C to the Hudson River. Art in Odd Places 2022: STORY seeks imaginative proposals by artists from the Disabled, BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and Allied communities that tell her, his, their STORY (Community. Identity. Endurance. Merit. Perception). Jessica Elain Blinkhorn, Who Am I Who Are You? ABOUT THE CURATOR: Jessica Elaine Blinkhorn was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy very young. The muscle wasting disease has left her as a wheelchair user but she uses living with a disability to inform her work and educate society about differences. She began to explore Performance Art in Graduate School to assist with creating and constructing a social narrative to promote change, equity, and inclusion. She has been featured on ABC World News(2010), was the subject of the award-winning documentary short “Grounded by Reality”(2010), and has received grants from Change, Inc., FL(2012), Artist Fellowship Grant, NY(2013, 2014, 2015, 2021), Foundation for the Contemporary Arts, NY(2018, 2020, 2021), C4 Atlanta, GA(2020).

Ep. 89 Caitlin Mary Margarett
Caitlin Mary Margarett is a Midwestern artist, born and raised between Minnesota and Iowa. CMM attends the University of Wisconsin-Madison, seeking an MFA in 4D (2024). She holds a BFA in performance art and a BA in art history from the University of Northern Iowa (2018). Rooted in a durational, performative practice, CMM's work shifts between seeking an esthetic, spiritual ambience and an immediate, frenetic urgency about our climate crisis. Her work is a multimedia exploration of place and the near past; utilizing video, photography, ceramics, antiques, and textiles to evoke both nostalgia and solastalgia. She has most recently been analyzing her local ecology and considering the Midwest landscape as an article of history in and of itself. The 100 Days project is a durational performance practice that began in 2020, illustrating the timeline of the Midwest’s loss in biodiversity alongside her maternal family's immigration from Denmark to Iowa. The project is focused on generating a discussion surrounding our concept of time, ecological and cultural erosion, and grief. In 2021, her 100 Days V.ii documented the Iowa Derecho's damage and showed her multi-day pilgrimage across the state. In the final days of V.ii, CMM documented the homes, graves, and churches of her maternal line, and the Rompot prairie that was destroyed by Cargill and the City of Cedar Rapids. Through 100 Days V.i in 2020, CMM cataloged much of her surrounding landscape and domestic rituals at the onset of the pandemic. CMM's art practice is a means to make sense of her own feminist spirituality within systems of cultural / ecological flourishing and suffering. Her work poses questions about individual agency, and the experience of being locked in cycles of redemption and reemergence. These recurring threads, woven into narratives around site specificity and our connection to place, coalesce into new work that asks what our roles are as we brace for the impact of our climate emergency. Her work has been shown throughout the Midwest, at 2021's Miami Art Week as a part of the PERFORMANCE IS ALIVE / Satellite Show that runs concurrent with Art Basel Miami; at Louisiana State University for the 2019 Queeramics Symposium; in Ceramics Monthly; Emergency Index V. 8 and V. 9; and Aesthetica Magazine. She is currently preparing for her research trip to Denmark in 2022 and her solo show in Berlin, Germany, at LiTEHAUS GALERIE & PROJEKTRAUM, also slated for 2022. CMM's next upcoming solo show is scheduled at ARTIFACT Gallery, New York, NY, on January 11-29, 2023. https://www.caitlinmarymargarett.com/

Ep. 88 Mind of Milk and Honey
A flesh-centric collaboration between Isla P Gordon and Ashley Kaye, Milk and Honey explores and lampoons pop culture, partnership and the body. Milk and Honey takes its name from the biblical phrase, and inspiration from its use in the modern day to describe, among other things, The United States of America, a 1984 album by John Lennon & Yoko Ono, and an ancient form of corporal punishment. Milk and Honey’s oeuvre draws on the creators’ experiences as a transgender woman and a gender non-conforming woman. Utilizing an array of props, custom designed and printed textiles and bodysuits, their live performances, videos and installations contemplate new ways of being. Recent recipients of Artist 360 Grants from the Mid-America Art Alliance, their performances and installations have been featured at Theatre Squared, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and online by Inverse Performance Art Festival. mindofmilkandhoney.com - satellite-show.com - performanceisalive.com

EP. 85 Hammond's unique abstract art that tells a story.
https://www.hammondartstudio.com/ Hammond, represented by Rehs Contemporary Galleries in Midtown Manhattan, grew up in the historic Hudson Valley of New York. His earliest influences included Jim Davis and Charles Schultz, as well as characters created by DC and Marvel Comics. His interest in art was further fueled by the strong museum and arts background of his parents. In the late 90's, Hammond studied the business and presentation side of the fine art world while working for Vanier Galleries, Scottsdale, AZ. In doing so, he was exposed to world-renowned artists such as Dale Chihuly, Francoise Gillot, Fritz Scholder and Paul Jenkins. He had his first solo exhibition in 2000 and earned his B.A. in Art from Arizona State University in 2006. While trained in representational art, Hammond began working from the subconscious, and in 2011 he shifted to an abstract expressionistic style. The initial outcome was his first abstract series, UNTITLED. In 2012 he moved to Cincinnati, OH. He then partnered with Artworks Cincinnati on multiple projects, and in 2014 he founded the Cincinnati Abstract Art Group. Hammond’s work was selected for the Ohio Governor’s Office and Residence Loan Program in 2016 and he has received three purchase awards through the Ohio Percent for Art program. He has had solo exhibitions in AZ, NY, OH and WI and is in public and private collections nationally.

This blue is the light that got lost. Light at the blue end of the spectrum does not travel the whole distance from the sun to us. It disperses among the molecules of the air, it scatters in water. Water is colorless, shallow water appears to be the color of whatever lies underneath it, but deep water is full of this scattered light, the purer the water the deeper the blue. The sky is blue for the same reason, but the blue at the horizon, the blue of land that seems to be dissolving into the sky, is a deeper, dreamier, melancholy blue, the blue at the farthest reaches of the places where you see for miles, the blue of distance. This light that does not touch us, does not travel the whole distance, the light that gets lost, gives us the beauty of the world, so much of which is in the color blue." - Rebecca Solnit ---------- ✨pc + mua: @angelicaasaroo ✨
