Fresh Talk: Camille Norment

July 9th, 2015 · Comments

American-born artist Camille Norment lives and works in Norway. We recorded the episode inside the Nordic Pavilion at the 56th Venice Art Biennale. Norment's project animates a space designed to converse with the surrounding topography, weather, and natural light. Titled Rapture, her elegant, immersive sonic environment evokes both harmony and dissonance.

Fresh Talk: Agnes Meyer-Brandis

January 14th, 2013 · Comments

In Berlin, Cathy Byrd meets German artist Agnes Meyer-Brandis in the control tower of Tempelhof, an abandoned airport at the edge of the city, to see the artist's installation "Up In the Air: Control Room Tempelhof." Agnes fuses pure science and creativity to explore the zone between fact and fiction, fantasy and technology. So far, her projects have taken Agnes to the U.S., Russia, Brazil, Switzerland, Austria, Argentina and Australia. The artist rarely works in a typical studio or gallery setting. You're more likely to find Agnes exploring the poetics of glaciers beneath ice skating rinks and raising moon geese.

Cathy Byrd spoke on the phone with Jason Moran, a jazz pianist/composer based in New York. The MacArthur Fellow and artistic adviser for jazz at the Kennedy Center talks about when he first started improvising, how he collaborates with contemporary artists, and what unfolded during Bleed, the suite of events he created with his wife Alicia Hall Moran during their Biennial residency at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
