Fresh Talk: Sanford Biggers

May 5th, 2016 · Comments

American artist Sanford Biggers has a lot to say about time and the human condition. We meet in New York where Chicago gallerist Monique Meloche is presenting an exhibition of his current projects during the Armory Show. I’m here to find out more about the ideas behind the work. What's motivating him to radically alter old quilts and African sculptures?

Fresh Talk: Binelde Hyrcan

July 30th, 2015 · Comments

Artist Binelde Hyrcan is participating in the Venice Art Bienniale for the first time this year. He's showing a poignant short video in the Angola Pavilion's featured group exhibition On Ways of Traveling. In the work titled Cambeck, four boys imagine themselves touring the world in a limousine. They transcend their reality...if only for a moment.

Fresh Talk: Tameka Norris

March 19th, 2015 · Comments

Tameka Norris just produced her first feature-length film. She plays herself in Meka Jean: How She Got Good. The narrative has a lot in common with The Moviegover, a novel by Walker Percy. Like Walker Percy, Norris grew up in the Deep South, and went away to seek her fortune. Like Binx Bolling, the book’s protagonist, Meka Jean reveals what it means when New Orleans is the city you call home.

We recorded this conversation with Norris when her film debuted during the international exhibition Prospect.3 New Orleans, in 2014. She presented the project as a multi-chambered installation at May Gallery, a nonprofit art space in the district known as the Upper 9th Ward.
