art talk am on the radio


Art Talk AM on the Radio was a weekly radio show in conjunction with the Portland State University MFA Monday Night Lecture Series. Visiting artists were interviewed the day of their lecture live on KPSU, Portland’s college radio. Founded and hosted by Cyrus W Smith, Art Talk AM served as an archive of the lecture series, as well as an opportunity to hear some of contemporary art’s most important figures discussing their work in conversation. During the summer months, Art Talk AM ran independent of the PMNLS, instead Smith invited Portland area artists and curators.

A ten book box set that distills the year long effort features Regine Basha, Harrell Fletcher & Jen Delos Reyes, Dan Attoe, Patrick Rock, Courtney Fink, Chris Johanson, Calvin Johnson, Lucky Dragons and Daniel Bozhkov.

These books were available for sale at Reading Frenzy and Rock’s Box in Portland, Golden Age in Chicago, Art Metropole in Toronto, Extra Extra in Philadelphia, and Printed Matter in New York.

An archive of Art Talk AM is available here.

Book design by Nicole Lavelle.
