From the Archives – Interview with Mario Zoots

Today from our archives we bring you an interview with artist Mario Zoots, conducted by Daily Serving‘s founder, Seth Curcio. This article was originally published on February 15, 2010.

Dushko Petrovich. El Oso Carnal (in progress), 2012-present; acrylic on paper, 108 x 90 in.

I first met Dushko Petrovich in 2013 at the “Painting Expanded” symposium at the California College of the Arts.

As an idea and word, “curator” continues to suffer a death from overdose. Still, I am tempted to place this burdensome phrase upon Conny Purtill and his chosen allies—that is, if we can agree that curating involves working with someone else’s objects to elucidate a concept. The exhibition The Ground, recently on view at Adams and Ollman Gallery in Portland, Oregon, began with Purtill gifting[.....]

Supertheory of Supereverything: Interview with Eric William Carroll

GUT FEELING Installation Photos-5 RE-EDIT

Like many in the scientific community, Eric William Carroll is searching for an ultimate theory of everything, but he’s doing so in a slightly different way. For G.U.T.
