Who are some of the teams competing in this Sunday’s Art Handling Olympics at Ramiken Crucible? We caught up with Screw ‘Em, one of 15 teams competing in the games. This is what they had to say.
Paddy Johnson: When and how did you hear about the Art Handling Olympics?
Screw ’em: Are you kidding? Is there anyone that doesn’t know?
PJ: How do you all know each other?
S’em: A sorceress inducted us into the cabal in an abandoned subway tunnel. She forced us to read so much theory it made our eyes bleed… No – seriously, we met through softball.
PJ: Are you the only all girl team in the competition?
S’em: Is this some kind of trick question?
PJ: What have you done to prepare for the event?
S’em: We already had the skills, so we’ve just fine tuned our style.
PJ: What skills do you think your team brings to the table that others will not?
PJ: What did you think of the Brice Marden hanging at MoMA in 2006?
S’em: It needed more pink.
PJ: 59 on center or 58 on center?
S’em: It doesn’t matter as long as we’re well hung.
