Bad at Sports
Bad at Sports
Residency Period: December 2013
Cannonball is thrilled to welcome Bad at Sports (B@S) into the 2013 Visiting Residency Program. During their residency, B@S will curate a booth of limited-edition posters by Chicago and Miami artists at PULSE Miami (December 5–8) as part of this year’s Art Basel Week shenanigans. They will also occupy a cozy space in the fair’s public restroom to conduct live interviews of the rich, famous, and fabulous as part of an internet broadcast radio show. Please stop by and laugh with us!
Bad at Sports can be tricky to describe: it acts as a curious investigator, an archivist, oral historian, and occasionally as a provocateur. They produce content that lies somewhere on the Venn Diagram of art, journalism, criticism, and gossip. They represent artists and their worlds through an archive that exists as text, audio, and ephemera, and is constantly evolving through ongoing and unique projects. Founded in 2005 by Duncan MacKenzie, Richard Holland, and Amanda Browder, B@S now features over 25 principle collaborators and is a weekly podcast, a series of objects, events, and a daily blog produced throughout the United States and abroad that features artists and “art worlders” talking about art and the community that makes, reviews, and participates in it.
