Live-blogging Friday’s workshops at NEW INC, part of the New Museum’s IDEAS CITY festival.
The performance-centric art space BB created hellotalkshow.info to promote their new interview program in Baltimore. From this month until August, the gallery space will host events where participants can be interviewed and tell stories in the format of a late-night talk show. The website is an interactive environment where different GIFs can be moved around a virtual representation of the gallery to assemble or disassemble a disheveled postmodern talk show set. It’s weirdly addictive. Maybe that’s a psychosomatic association with all those coffee cups? The project was recently funded by The Grit Fund, a juried grant administered through The Contemporary with support from The Andy Warhol Foundation.
