Live from Dakar 2018-Jolt Radio-16May2018

May 21st, 2018 · Comments

Today, we bring you Fresh Art International LIVE from Dakar, Senegal. We made the journey to West Africa in May 2018, to capture sounds of local art and culture and to document our first encounter with the biennial of contemporary African art known as Dak'Art.

In the first of our two live streaming broadcasts, you'll hear Marisol Rodríguez (Mexico City/Paris), one of the biennial's guest curators, talk about her work with a team of creatives based in the Hurricane Zone (Mexico's Yucatàn Peninsula, Central America and the Caribbean).

Also LIVE: our show from la Boite à Idée, or Idea Box, a cultural hub in Dakar's Mermoz district. In the garden of this space is where cultural activist Ken Aicha Sy, founder of Wakh'Art Music introduces us to a few of the creatives engaging in the local art and music scene. You'll hear from Ms. Sy, along with Franco-Senegalese artist Gabriel Dia, jazz guitarist Paride Pagnotti, I Science vocalist Corinna Fiore, and composer Nathan Fallou Fuhr. A modest local songwriter introducing himself simply as "Jean-Pierre," steps up to the microphone with his guitar to voice our melodic good-bye-for-now.

Fresh Talk: Janet Biggs 2014

March 25th, 2014 · Comments

This episode of Fresh Talk features Cathy Byrd's conversation with Janet Biggs, a video artist whose work you might remember from our first season. Since we last spoke, Janet’s creative drive has taken her inside a volcano and to the edge of China's Silk Road. Her next destination? Spoiler alert: Picture Janet somewhere South of the border, donning an ice suit to explore a spectacular, white-hot crystal cave that lies 300 meters below ground.
