apexart and Bad at Sports are collaborating once again for their Resident Talk with current apexart Inbound Resident, Nanna Nordström, visiting from Stockholm, Sweden. Amanda Browder from the Bad at Sports team will interview Nanna in the depths of a once-hospital out in Brooklyn, getting to the bottom of what exactly the apexart Residency is, what her experiences have been during her month in New York, and new influences the city has brought.
Amanda Browder is a visual artist who lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Born in Missoula, MT, Amanda moved to Chicago in 2001 to teach at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and to later help start the Bad at Sports podcast with Duncan MacKenzie and Richard Holland. In 2007 Amanda moved to New York and now heads the NY Bureau. As a fine-artist Amanda has shown nationally and internationally and last year she received a grant from Brooklyn Arts Council and the NPArt.
Nanna Nordström is a Swedish artist based in Stockholm, Sweden. She was born 1981 in Jönköping, Sweden and before going on to the arts she studied agriculture. She was educationed at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm and at the Akademie der bildenden Kunste in Vienna. She has exhibited both in Sweden and abroad. Nordström is one of the holders of the IASPIS (Swedish Arts Grants Committee's International Programme for Visual Artists) studio grant 2012. For more information on apexart resident Nanna Nordström, visit her resident page.
Over the course of the series, the Bad at Sports team will grill and provoke apexart residents in increasingly ridiculous scenarios while talking art, residencies, the role of conversation, and the inspiration that comes with travel.
