Dead Hare Radio and This Red Door.
Matthew and I visited the studio of Jomar Statkun to speak with him, Jared Friedman and Christopher Stackhouse about This Red Door. This Red Door evolved out of the opportunity for an artist residency at PS 122 in 2011 presented to Jomar. Instead of using the time and space for a solispistic and plastic generative moment, the three artists came together to offer up a broader, socially, intellectually generative one.
The artists have re-mustered to bring This Red Door into its 2nd iteration at Kunsthalle Galapagos in DUMBO in Brooklyn through January 27th.

Video of Kara Walker's TRD talk.
(more talk relevant links may be forthcoming.)
This episode closes with Willie Survive's remix and rap over Jomar's Chinese Painting sound piece.
The TRD website features a series of video documentations of presentations given in the original iteration and the present one. As I'm writing this post, I'm listening to the talk given by Kara Walker in 2011 which interestingly dissects her own role/responsibility as an artist - and as an artist of color - who has had a great deal of success in her career.
Dead Hare Radio will be present at This Red Door on Sunday, Jan 13 to record conversations with past/present TRD participants...and possibly whoever else is on hand. If you're up and around, come on by and say hi. Kunsthalle Galapagos is at 16 Main St in DUMBO.
