Ryan McGinness is a critically acclaimed artist with works in the permanent collection of the MOMA. He uses icons, logos and public symbols to explore the power and influence they have on our visual language. Tune in as we discuss how he once destroyed his studio with pigmented fish oil for a conceptual party, and how he got 50 naked people to show up his studio to have their bodies covered in neon paint.
Artist Miya Bailey breaks down his art origin story, how he pursues his many creative outlets from tattooing to sculpture, and how his latest enterprise Peter Street Station Is helping him fulfill his personal mission of elevating Black artists in Atlanta. We also talked about why women are the shit, how our egos get us in trouble as men and the conflict artists have with capitalism.
As an artist I am particularly interested in the tension between nature and culture, between tradition and innovation. I try to push the limits of digital possibilities, while maintaining respect for the (art) historical legacy. When creating a work I investigate the possibilities between the organic and the digital, between the virtual and the physical. I explore classical themes such as man (with a focus on the anatomy and the emergence of cyborgs), plants (especially their genetic manipulation), masks and animals, always starting from an (art) historical background that I cut with contemporary pop and sci-fi culture. Nick Ervinck
We take a deep dive with Joan Shin and Brigitte Podrasky into their work ‘Traces', performed at arts and music festival Soft Centre. Glimpsing at ghostly gestural markings, fragmented rhythms and scrambled visuals, ‘Traces' is a live audiovisual performance showcasing the multidisciplinary offerings of DBR, Cypha, Brigitte Podrasky and Joan Shin. Situated as a collaborative project across three remote cities, ‘Traces' takes inspiration from memory and disorderly exchanges between each artist's temporal context. Brigitte and Joan talk about their process working across three cities and as four artists with different practices and reflect on the experience of live performance as visual artists. Plus, the value in finding good collaborative dynamic.

Rowan Atkinson is associated with a lot of ‘B's – Blackadder, Bean, bumbling British spies... and now bees. He plays an inept house-sitter in a luxury mansion chasing after an insect in Netflix's new Man Vs Bee. He talks about this, his iconic characters, and why making comedy isn't always that fun. Artist Thomas J Price's Warm Shores, a pair of 9 foot tall bronze figures, have just been installed outside Hackney Town Hall in London to mark Windrush Day. 74 years on from the arrival of the SS Empire Windrush at Tilbury Docks, Thomas joins Tom live in the studio to discuss how his work honours the Windrush Generation while playing with ideas of power, public space and 3D body scans. When the Oscar-winning film director Susanne Bier turned her attention to television, the result was the acclaimed series The Night Manager, followed by The Undoing. She talks about her new series, The First Lady, which explores the lives of the wives of three American Presidents – Michelle Obama, Betty Ford, and Eleanor Roosevelt.

In this episode Gary Mansfield speaks to Lise Bouissière (@lisebouissiere) Lise Bouissière is a Franco-British artist. She graduated from Central Saint Martins School (London) and Villa Arson (Nice, France). Bouissière is a Royal Society of Sculptors member. Over the past ten years, she has shown in solo and group shows across the United Kingdom and Italy, including at The Royal Society of Sculptors (2021), Aora Space (2021), Koppel Exchange Project (2020 and 2021), The Crypt Gallery (2021), Gerald Moore Gallery (2020), The Smallest Gallery in Soho (2019), Villa Arson (2014), Palais de Tokyo (2016). Bouissière also took part in Venice land Biennale (2019) and Monaco's music festival (2011). Bouissiere's practice focuses on the optimisation of space and the use of materials. Through a distinct construction of ideas, found materials are played with to create minimalist and honest compositions. Bouissière's structures reveal a memory, a current state or a hidden side of a place with the elements that surround it. In many cases, the place Bouissière constructs her art is transformed like a mental space, offering the viewer a large panel of interpretations. Lise Bouissière lives and works in London.

Artist Stevei Houkamau originally planned to study Ta Moko before she was seduced by the feeling of clay in her hands and her ability to carve into it. It was 2011 when she met members of the Nga Kaihanga Uku - the Maori Clayworkers Collective. They included the late Manos Nathan, Baye Riddel and the artist who would become her Tuakana or teacher, Wi Taepa. Stevei's gone on to establish her own distinctive style of uku carving, referencing whakapapa, customary vessels and tattoo practices of Ta moko and Tatau. She's just opened her first solo exhibition - Ira Tangata Ira Atua - in the South Island/Te Waipounamu at Nelson's Suter Gallery. Stevei tells Lynn Freeman that her first encounter with the Collective uku artists got off to a shaky start.

Episode No. 554 features artists Andrea Bowers and Suzanne Lacy. The Hammer Museum, Los Angeles is presenting a retrospective of Bowers' work. The exhibition reveals how Bowers has combined her artistic practice with activism. Both focus on structural inequities, elevating and celebrating the work of activists trying to create a more just nation and world, and tying present day struggles to historical movements such as the global labor movement. The show features about 60 works reflecting Bowers's use of many media, including drawing, installation, video and sculpture. "Andrea Bowers" was curated by Connie Butler and Michael Darling. After debuting at the MCA Chicago, it's on view at the Hammer through September 4. The excellent exhibition catalogue was published by DelMonico Books in association with the two museums. Indiebound and Amazon offer it for $40-60. On the second segment, our 2019 conversation with Bowers' sometime-collaborator, Suzanne Lacy. The program was recorded when the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts jointly presented the retrospective “Suzanne Lacy: We are Here.” The exhibition explores Lacy's roots in early conceptualism and her emergence as a pioneer of what has become known as social practice, the use of community organizing and media-focused strategies to prompt events and discussions. The exhibitions are on view in San Francisco through August 4. Suzanne Lacy is best known for her ambitious Three Weeks in May (1977), a project that exposed the extent of reported rapes in Los Angeles. It was the first of Lacy's large-scale works that addressed violence against women and that revealed Lacy's strategies for melding art and organizing practices. Links and images to artworks Lacy discusses are at Episode No. 393.
When the Seattle Art Museum opened the Olympic Sculpture Park on the urban waterfront in 2007, it changed the way people could interact with art and experience the city's environment. The fact that it's free and open to everyone makes the park one of the most inclusive places to see art in the Pacific Northwest. The sculpture park contains pieces like Alexander Calder's red sculpture The Eagle, Jaume Plensa's giant head Echo, and Neukom Vivarium, a 60-foot nurse log in a custom-designed greenhouse, among many others. Although many people believe that the greatest work of art at the park is the park itself and the way it connects with its surroundings. Because of the efforts of the Seattle Art Museum and the city, instead of being filled with private condo buildings, this former industrial site has become a welcoming part of the waterfront for the public to enjoy sculptures, activities, and the gorgeous Elliott Bay views. The new book Seattle's Olympic Sculpture Park: A Place for Art, Environment, and an Open Mind, pays homage to the interconnected spirit of the park. Mimi Gardner Gates — the director of the Seattle Art Museum (1994–2009) at the time of the Sculpture Park's conception and creation — edited this collection of writings and images about the park and how public-private partnerships can create innovative civic spaces. Other contributors include Barry Bergdoll, Lisa Graziose Corrin, Renée Devine, Mark Dion, Teresita Fernández, Leonard Garfield, Jerry Gorovoy for Louise Bourgeois, Michael A. Manfredi, Lynda V. Mapes, Roy McMakin, Peter Reed, Pedro Reyes, Maggie Walker, and Marion Weiss. Seattle Times journalist Lynda V. Mapes and SAM curator Catharina Manchanda joined Gates in discussion about the remarkable waterfront park and how it might inspire future innovation in civic spaces. Mimi Gardner Gates was director of the Seattle Art Museum for fifteen years and is now director emerita, overseeing the Gardner Center for Asian Art and Ideas. Previously, she spent nineteen years at Yale University Art Gallery, the last seven-and-a-half of those years as director. She is a fellow of the Yale Corporation; Chairman of the Dunhuang Foundation; Chairman of the Blakemore Foundation; a trustee of the San Francisco Asian Art Museum; a trustee of the H. John Heinz III Center for Science, Economics and the Environment, and serves on the boards of the Yale University Art Gallery, the Northwest African American Museum, the Terra Foundation, and Copper Canyon Press. Dr. Gates formerly chaired the National Indemnity Program at the National Endowment for the Arts and served on the Getty Leadership Institute Advisory Committee. Lynda V. Mapes is a journalist, author, and close observer of the natural world, and covers natural history, environmental topics, and issues related to Pacific Northwest indigenous cultures for The Seattle Times. Over the course of her career she has won numerous awards, including the international 2019 and 2012 Kavli gold award for science journalism from the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the world's largest professional science association. She has written six books, including Orca Shared Waters Shared Home, winner of the 2021 National Outdoor Book Award, and Elwha, a River Reborn. Catharina Manchanda joined the Seattle Art Museum as the Jon & Mary Shirley Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art in 2011. Notable exhibitions for SAM include Pop Departures (2014-15), City Dwellers: Contemporary Art from India (2015), Figuring History: Robert Colescott, Kerry James Marshall, Mickalene Thomas (2017), and Frisson: The Richard E. Lang and Jane Lang Davis Collection (2021). Prior to joining SAM, she was the Senior Curator of Exhibitions at the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, Ohio. She has also worked in curatorial positions at the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum, St. Louis; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Discover what goes on during its installation.Creative director, Rosie Pearson tells us about the finials by Anthony Turner on her gateposts which she commissioned in 2000, and how these sowed the seeds for creating on form.We hear from the curator, Anna Greenacre, about how she and Rosie choose artists through studio visits, then work alongside them to select pieces for the exhibition. She describes how her master wall-planner acts as a powerful tool in helping to place sculptures to their best advantage in the garden.In this episode you'll hear some of the sculptors sharing their thoughts about what they love about working with stone and what work they are presenting at on form this year.on form is created with love and encourages visitors to wander and absorb the beauty of the sculpture and know that there is no need to understand what it means, just enjoy it.Resident animals, with bags of character, include Lovage, the not-quite Jack Russell and Ziggy the cat with a half black, half white face.In the weeks before opening, the sculptors descend in groups to install their work, many staying a few nights in the beautiful house and creating a core team to help other sculptors unpack and place their work. We recorded this podcast when installation was in full swing and share the behind-the-scenes stories of how the community of artists, staff, gardeners – and even neighbours with tractors – all played their part.Rosie considers herself a custodian of the 18 acres of nature and is committed to biodiversity. She works with ecologist Tim Mitchell, who is running the walled garden as a food-share scheme: ‘some for the birds, some for the bugs and some for us'.We also hear from head gardener, Owen Vaughan, who brings to perfect readiness the 100% organic garden, originally designed and planted by Isabel and Julian Bannerman in 1998, for the four long weekends of on form.The 2022 exhibition of on form runs from 12 June to 10 July – open Wednesday to Sundays (closed Monday and Tuesday) – book tickets online.onformsculpture.co.ukinstagram.com/on_form_sculptureThanks to all the contributors to this programme: Rosie Pearson, creative director Anna Greenacre, curator Owen Vaughan, head gardener Deandra Barrett, administrative assistant Annie Taylor, Rosie's daughter Thanks to the sculptors: Sergio Baroni Rob Good Lotte Thuenker Jason Mulligan Richard Perry Christine Madies Jaya Schuerch Mark Stonestreet Ben Russell CreditsSound edit and design: Mike AxinnMusic: licensed from Epidemic Sound I Will Hold Onto You (instrumental version), Garden Friend
In this episode Gary Mansfield speaks to Kipling Hunt (@kipling_hunt) Born in London, Hunt has also lived in Barcelona, Birmingham and in semi-rural isolation on the borders of Wales. Kipling makes fine art pieces in ceramic, in paint, in print, in film, or in fact any medium most able to deliver each concept in question with assurance and panache. Kipling has also worked for over a decade in the Secondary Art Market, as a General Specialist in Fine Art Paintings, Prints and Sculpture. This gave Hunt great insight and a comprehensive knowledge of artists both practicing and those now deceased; and a working blueprint of what goes on behind the scenes to oil the wheels of the global art market.

It's Mara Thomas in conversation with artist and educator Luan Joy Sherman! Mara connected with Luan through the http://schoolofthealternative.com/ (School of the Alternative) (SotA) an immersive, non-hierarchical learning environment that seeks to “create conditions necessary for a present-day community of pioneering artists and critical thinkers.” During this year's SotA session, Luan facilitated a class titled, “Fertile Fear" which Mara and Luan discuss in this episode. The description of Fertile Fear: "A class focused on making friends with fear/avoidance and using these instructive feelings as a door into our true desires. Compassion, vulnerability, emotional safety, and community support are the ideal ingredients for accessing bravery. We'll discuss dimensions of fear, the power of vulnerability, and create guidelines for how we can cultivate bravery together." One of the tools Luan shares in this episode is what he calls his “Daily Practice” – identifying things that he needs to connect with on a daily basis to help him feel emotionally, physically, and creatively healthy. Luan discusses how his Daily Practice came to be, how it was received in creative community, and the tendency that can creep in around using tools like this as a form of self-judgment.

Until it is solved, the overall meaning of the statue remains an unfinished riddle. Today we explore the puzzling Kryptos Sculpture.
