To say that Albie is a multidisciplinary artist shows the paucity of art speak itself. He seems to use whatever tactics are at his disposal. Some of them relate, some of them don’t, although throughout our conversation we seem to find more vectors that connect through work than he was willing to admit to. Albie’s practice seems to be about just doing what seems right and feasible at the moment. He works as a graphic designer, he’s done conceptual audio pieces, one we play here, he’s made and shown sculptures and film and until the recent pandemic has split his ...

In these last several days, I’ve been thinking about what to do on this channel. It persists that I feel like I have a responsibility to say something. It’s been in our mandate to include those unheard, underrepresented, marginalized voices from the beginning—not through some attempt at tokenism but because we felt good work and important voices were being overlooked and are necessary to the overall conversation. I have tried in both what I publish and broadcast to keep these voices in mind, to hold Talk as a platform that continues to boost these signals. Black Lives Matter. So not to ...

In this episode I chat with the one the legendary DJ SWEATPANTS aka Erik Carter. We get his take on the MTV moment, on what and how designers should focus their time, our back to back editorials on the Walker blog and what it REALLY means to DESIGN HARDER (and who actually coined that, hint: it wasn’t Erik). Great guy, great ep, feel the flow.

We get into dance, the hidden history of black graphic design and what the hell we’re all trying to do in this crazy field. Great ep. One note, the artist I was thinking about from the Greater New York show at PS1, I got wrong, it was a piece by Glenn Ligon not David Hammonds. Shout out to Vance Wellenstein (https://vancewellenstein.com/) who did a great little book on it too. You can find that book here: https://www.amazon.com/Glenn-Ligon-Housing-History-Greater/dp/0989985962. I know Amazon, not ideal but I think its sold out most first market places. I have a copy that I bought at PS1 ...

Artist, curator and man about town, Jesse started and ran the iconic 247365 gallery that ran in the donut district alongside Primetime and Know More Games, which if you were around was definitely a moment on the New York scene between 2012-2017. We get into the relationship between his obsession with the malleability and seductive qualities of plastic as sculpture, we avoid the polemic political connotations between the material and the global market and network structure 😉 We also think through the comparison between that and the seduction process and the slippery performance of self that goes into curating and ...

In his reletivly short career (so far) Kurt has accomplished a lot and certainly made his mark on culture. As art director of the new Interview Magazine he, along with Richard Turly defined a new and experimental look, one of the freshest of any legacy titles that I know of. He also runs a zine publishing house called TXT Books that continues to innovate graphic language and push everyone’s vocabulary forward. And like several other guests on this show he worked on Turley’s experimental video graphics department that did some of the the most energetic, demented and avant garde television ...

She’s also written a novella “Fantasian, a New Lovers” published by Paul Chan’s imprint, Badlands Unlimited and is soon coming out with what she calls a mixtape of personal writing and essays, “How to Run Away” to be published by Catapult. Here we get into her thoughts on the rise and need for the personal in writing and when it goes too far, how art helps the artist to both express and disguise personal vulnerability, ...

Here I talk to editor and writer Matthew Shen Goodman. Long time Talk fam, Matt contributed to our first issue for which I will forever be grateful. Matt is an editor at Triple Canopy and frequent contributor to Art in America among a fistful of other cultural and critical platforms. Here we talk about why he dropped out of not one but two prestigious grad programs, circle around the question of the space for idiosyncratic style and interiority in critical writing and why fiction is starting to feel more and more relevant in the early days of 2020. We also ...
