The GalleryBeat live talk show, COOKING WITH GALLERYBEAT, avoided the skillet again by not cooking with strange fruit. We performed at the Brooklyn Museum's architectural futurama, the Rubin Pavilion on October 6th, 2011 as part of the museum's Thursday Night Series. Guests for this show were Mercer St. Medical's Dr. Daryl Isaacs, ArtNews Chief Editor Robin Cembalest, Upright Citizens Brigade's Ann Carr, World artist man/wife team Spencer and Kristin Bowler Tunick, and BM's main event artist, Sanford Biggers.
Part 1 - We introduce NEW Father and music director Pat Daughtery in bizarro footage we collected at the consistently eccentric Dumbo Arts Festival. Then we move to first guest artist Sanford Biggers, whose retrospective at the BM showcases "Blossum", a major work based on Billie Holiday's song, STRANGE FRUIT. We talk about anything from his vertical artworld success to his marital status. Does Dr. Lisa state she is willing to leave her husband for Mr. Biggers? This is just the first guest of five at the most dramatic location for a live show we can imagine, so far the only Brooklyn starship to fly us into the 21st century. Stay turned for the rest of the COOKING WITH GALLERYBEAT miniseries at THE BROOKLYN MUSEUM 2011.
