Wise Guys: Johanna Fateman on the art of Nicole Eisenman

“Even before this presidency, Eisenman zeroed in on the pathetic flip sides of the masculine archetypes that drive each cycle of our fresh hell, from Tea Partiers to frat guys.”
–Johanna Fateman

Drafts: Huey Copeland introduces Steffani Jemison

“I am thinking about what happens when writing is decoupled from communication, or when it is deliberately encoded. I am thinking about automatic drawing and speaking in tongues and spirit writing.”
–Steffani Jemison

Humanly Possible: Dan Nadel on the art of William T. Wiley

“Wiley focused on the idea of America as embodied in the sights of his childhood—‘America’ as both subject and terrain, ideology and physical entity.”
–Dan Nadel

1000 Words: Trenton Doyle Hancock talks about Mind of the Mound: Critical Mass

–Trenton Doyle Hancock
