One of the best damn interviews I’ve ever done, Javier Peres holds nothing back in this one. From his humble roots in San Francisco to his meteoric rise in Los Angeles, then to Athens and now with his two spaces in Berlin, Peres tells all.

Eroticism, El Greco, Warhol auction shenanigans, Bruce LaBruce, gay zombies, the new German plague, old ladies and poppers, you name it, we talked about it.

I have been following this power duo for the past 5 years. Amazing projects all over the world is only part of their charm, quality work and actual commitment to the betterment of humankind weigh in as part of their creedo as well. I’ve been meaning to do this interview for years. Very intimate and truly heartfelt as well as funny, this is a great conversation.

Axel Wieder (Pro qm) and Joep Van Liefland (AUTOCENTER) at
The Node Center for Curatorial Studies in Berlin

I was asked to come to Berlin by the curator Lian Ladia and have a conversation with Axel Wieder of Pro qm and Joep Van Liefland of AUTOCENTER. The conversation took place during the big Based in Berlin show, a giant hubbub affair at 5 different locations and both of these gentlemen were a part of it. The conversation was a lot of fun and insightful as well. Thanks to Node Center and all of the curators there for supplying a fantastic environment for a great conversation.

Listen along!

Art dealer Anton Kern and artist David Shrigley

As the starting bell for the fall season sounds, I happened to swing by a delightfully mischievous show at Anton Kern Gallery and who should be showing but the talented, the unholy, the pithy, the nimble Scot himself….  David Shrigley.

.

From mounted crooked fingers on the wall, to a robot bludgeoning a baby seal, to a long plinth of huge ceramic black boots, Shrigley’s fourth show with Kern is a winner. Listen along as they suss out such heated topics as yoga balls, saddle chairs, hating children (except for one lucky child, Linus), how to get a gallery in NYC and of course no interview is complete without an in-depth investigation of the deadly ‘Glasgow Smile’.

Elizabeth Dee (Elizabeth Dee Gallery) and Ryan McNamara (artist)

.

When one thinks of dynamic combinations, most often Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups come to mind, two great tastes that go great together. When one thinks of stunning alliances in the art world, here, like the poignant Reese’s cup, is a classic being born.
.

Ryan McNamara is one of the most talented artists working in performance today. From his piece at Performa last year called “Sacred Band of Thebes AKA Any Fag Could Do That to his more recent projects in the Whitney Biennial and PS1’s Greater New York, McNamara is stepping up the game and blending different practices of dance/theater/history/make-up and more.  Now add Elizabeth Dee in the mix, one of the most exciting cultural producers making things happen today (she was one of the main people responsible for the fantastic X Initiative, as well as running one of the most dynamic galleries in Chelsea) and the possibilities are nearly endless.

.
Listen along and hear of such amazements as the permanent black eye, high school art projects on mass public display,  re-envisioning the collector/steward/patron role  and of course, disconnecting your ass and learning the almighty booty dance.

Ari Jankelowitz and Steven Day of Vinyl Contemporary

.

With galleries closing left and right, the henchman’s axe swinging wide over American employment and prudence if not outright fear as the prevailing mindset, there comes a voice of hope on the horizon. Ari Jankelowitz and artist Steven Day have spearheaded a new mobile gallery dubbed Vinyl Contemporary. While they don’t have a concrete physical space, they are doing projects including an upcoming show at the Verge Art Fair in Miami this December.

Listen along as we answer such stirring questions as whether or not New York is a talentless art vacuum, what awaits us post-hedge fund, whether or not art has any suggestions for our foundering economy, whether or not anyone cares what artist’s think and the granddaddy of them all, the revival of the small business model.
