53 – Art, Representation, & Realism w. Patrick Higgins

Artist Patrick Higgins is with us to talk all about his art and his upcoming new show On the Green Seesaw.

We discuss the tension between realism & representation when creating a static image; we go over Patrick’s history as an artist; we also break down the ways in which you can create an engaged audience by obscuring features of your subject. All cool stuff.

Speaking of cool stuff, go search Patrick’s website for reference to what we’re talking about and what you could see at his new show!

39 – Performance Art w. Julie Ferguson

Working artist Julie Ferguson is on the show to talk about performance art & the work that they do to support it.

We discuss how to manipulate audience engagement through movement & design; how one goes from having a weird idea to having a performance that people pay you money to see; and we talked all about how performance art, in particular, elicits complex conversations with(in) the audience.

So make sure to check out Julie’s Instagram & website for all of their NIUBOI work – past, present, and future.
