Leo Koenig and Greg Bogin with Zefrey Throwell on Frank Prattle

Leo Koenig (Leo Koenig Inc.) and Greg Bogin (artist)

A mere two hours before Greg Bogin’s show opened at Leo Koenig Inc. on 23rd st. in Chelsea, I swung by and tangoed with these two as they both fought off the pre-show jitters. We spun quite a yarn on this one, from naked high school dreams, to the realities of expansion in an age of shrinkage, to the idea of perfection, to triathlons, trust amongst artists and gallerists, and the raucous and infamous Leo Koenig crew.

Dynamite! (other than some cell phone static… sorry about that)

On a dreary day, when the Soho streets were filled with floating rats and soggy trash, I had the chance to sneak up to Marilyn Minter’s cozy studio and chat with her for a bit about her upcoming show at Salon 94. We covered a lot of turf, from the difference between being turned on to being seduced , to billboards and videos in Times Square, to the hot white light of success and how not to deal with it, to the age old policy of No Smiling Before Christmas. This one is truly delightful, listen along and also make sure to check out the trailer for her new video: HERE

On the Chelsea Piers in the middle of a fantastic spring afternoon, Dana Schutz and I strolled about looking for trouble. Dana has a new show up at Zach Feuer Gallery called Missing Pictures that is most certainly not to be missed. Listen along as we cover everything from Facebook fanaticism, to arm hole shaping, to Rick Berlin, to navy blue, and even the recent gonorrhea outbreak in the Gowanus Canal.

To be candid, this interview is fucking awesome. Don’t be the only one who hasn’t heard it!

I had a chance to sit down with Mungo right before his latest opening called “The Varieties of Experience” at John Connelly Presents. We shot the moon as far as subject matter, from sword masters, to whale songs, Brian Eno, light sabers, nostalgia, and all things in between. Mungo is one of my favorite contemporary artists, funny as hell and sharp as a whip across the backside.

Got to listen to this one.

Hank is one of the most comfortable and agile speakers that I have ever had on my show. In addition to being
well versed, what he’s saying is damn intelligent and strikingly honest. This interview comes on the heels of his stunning show at Jack Shainman Gallery called Pitch Blackness. Listen along as we tackle such subjects as slick logos, Johnny Walker, Obama, text books, myths, legends, and much more.

Bryan Suereth (director of Disjecta)

Two of Portland’s hottest stars face off in this lively mixer. They cover immense ground, from Sam Adams the naughty mayor of Portland, to grants for the arts, thinning out art makers, and tons more. If you’ve been wondering what is happening in the booming city of bridges, this is a must listen!

Cecily Brown on Frank Prattle with Zefrey Throwell

Cecily Brown (artist)

Cecily Brown is one of the most startling and amazing painters living today. She has traversed the terrain from left, right to center; dealing with eroticism, motion, suggestion, and dicing colors like a surgeon handles a tricky bypass. I caught up with her in her studio in Manhattan and we chatted about everything from her new book, to how she came to New York, to recent changes in her work, to her ingenious 3-deep stocked book shelf, to the secret code of her paintings, and what she considers to be her biggest regret in painting.

Don’t miss out on this one, you’ll hate yourself for not listening!
