apexart and Bad at Sports continue their Resident Talk collaboration* with current apexart Inbound Resident, Manolis Angelakis, visiting from Athens, Greece, and recent Outbound Resident, Nilay Lawson, who traveled from Washington, D.C., to Sao Paulo, Brazil. Amanda Browder and Duncan MacKenzie from the Bad at Sports team will conduct the interview on a park bench in Central Park, getting to the bottom of what exactly the apexart Residency is and what their experiences have been during their month away from their routine.

Amanda Browder, co-founder of Bad at Sports, is an internationally shown visual artist who lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.

Duncan MacKenzie, co-founder of Bad at Sports, is a Chicago based Artist / Critic / Writer / Educator / Podcaster and generally a culture enthusiast.

Manolis Angelakis was trained as a graphic designer, yet his knowledge as a printer stems from working as his father's apprentice from a very early age. Read more on his resident page.

Nilay Lawson, based in Washington D.C., has been involved in the DC art scene as curator, artist, teacher, and graphic designer. She has been nominated for a Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship. Read more on 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.
