Jacob Allers Hatlie and Humanize My Hoodie

This week we reverse our usual roles and Jasa will be presenting an interview with artist Jacob Allers Hatlie, who creates unexpected, yet meaningful combinations of drawing and text. Sarah addresses an opening she attended of Humanize My Hoodie and also speaks further about other awareness and activist exhibitions around the Twin Cities. In the news, we talk about the discontinuation of the Art Shanties Project, which will not be making an appearance in 2019 and what we can do show our support. And, as always, our music has been provided by the wonderful The Von Tramps!

Erin Sandsmark and Dear 1968,…

Greetings SOTA listeners! We have some major power ladies to discuss this episode. Sarah presents an interview with body-positive Twin Cities figure painter, Erin Sandsmark. Jasa continues to cover the “beyond” by delving into the exhibition Dear 1968,… by artist Sadie Barnette, which was presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. In art news, we discuss the New Orleans Museum of Art’s new mobile museum, NOMA+ and speculate on how a similar model could be applicable to the Twin Cities. This episode also features a special guest, Sarah’s cat, Kitty. We apologize for his outlandish interjections.
