Episode 1: Africa, OH

Episode 1: Take a quick trip with us to Africa, Ohio and hear from Steven Nelson, Dean of the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts at the National Gallery of Art, Michelle Grabner, Crown Family Professor of Art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Dawoud Bey Professor and Distinguished Artist at Columbia College Chicago, as they discuss art, narrative, place, names, and public space.

In this episode, we'll take a deep dive into the creation process of Bey's Night Coming Tenderly, Black and the unique experience it created while on view at St. John's Episcopal Church in Cleveland during the first FRONT Triennial.

Episode 2: Glass, A Slow-Moving Liquid

Episode 2 introduces us to FRONT 2022 artist Loraine Lynn, whose rambunctious and inviting work was featured in the FRONT 2022 preview exhibition, 'Grand Prototypes, Humble Tools', and now as part of the FRONT 2022 Triennial, 'Oh Gods of Dust and Rainbows', at Reinberger Gallery at the Cleveland Institute of Art. Tufting guns, stitch and bitch, mis-performance—it’s a wild ride from glass blowing, to blowing up carpets, to blowing up as a FRONT 2022 artist.
The Pod of Dust and Rainbows has been made to accompany the 2022 edition of FRONT International: The Cleveland Triennial for Contemporary Art.

The show was hosted and produced by Dr. Lady J & Kenyon Farrow, recorded at the Studio West 117 and West 117 Foundation podcast studio.

This project was made possible with generous support from Cuyahoga Arts and Culture.
