  • Please note: This event has been postponed. Check back for details on an upcoming event. Mn Artists Presents: Free Black Dirt Join Free Black Dirt to explore what a Black liberation future will look, sound, and feel like. Drawing from the Black August prison abolition movement, the evening blossoms into Afro-futuristic rhythms, lush queer intellectualism, expanded expressions of the erotic, and rituals of creative healing from ancestral wounds. This interactive exploration will honor our radica…
  • Mn Artists Presents: Eric Larson October 5, 5-9 pm Walker Art Center, Free Mn Artists, the Walker’s platform for local artists, brings its online network live and into the museum. A local artist guest-curates performances, temporary installations, and other projects. Connect with local artists of all disciplines, and engage with the questions driving the MN arts community. What can internet memes do? An art object frequently encountered by a wide range of communities, memes complicate boun…
  • Last time we approached the topic of misogyny in the music scene, we checked in with rapper Kat Fox about the general and specific ways she's seen women treated during her time as a musician. But it was clear from the beginning of that conversation that her experiences were just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. It isn't as though Fox is the only woman who ever had to confront a bloke in the scene. It's just that this was the first time a woman said “yes” after I asked her to interview abou…
  • Misogyny, the discrimination toward or oppression of others solely over their apparent lack of a Y chromosome, is everywhere. For some, dismissal of a term like “misogyny” comes easily. It may even feel, at times, like the term gets bandied about rather heavy-handedly. It's a very real offense, though, and clearly in evidence when one behaves as if gender renders others undeserving of even the simplest equalities – like pay, comfort, or basic safety. Think of it like that, and it isn't har…
  • Some things worth knowing about comic Molly Cathryn Glover, in no particular order: One, she’s an insult comic. Two, she's strangely obsessed with goats. (She may even believe she's actually two goats in a trench coat.) Three, she's one-third of the crew that produces the long-running atheist podcast, Geeks Without God. Four, a bunch of other stuff we're skipping over for time's sake. Five, her day job is making board games. Six, she has Asperger Syndrome. Seven, a bunch more stuff we'll get t…
  • Chastity Brown has been working steadily on a new album for some time now, having taken a reprieve from the world of music labels and the various corporate concerns therein, choosing instead to revisit her indie roots. (Although she put out several early releases on her own, it was the 2012 album Back Road Highways, released on the Creative & Dreams Music Network, that really broadened her place on the map.) Two years after the release of Back Road Highways, Brown announced that she was plan…
  • Twin Cities history is riddled with artists who probably should have been huge in their times but didn't quite fit with what their respective industries wanted. Think the Replacements or Rob Callahan. Folks who, one way or another, brushed hard enough against the big time to pick its pockets, but stumbled and fell back instead. Ian Rans has a similar story. These days, you'll find him celebrating the tenth anniversary of Triviasco, his unique take on bar trivia, but his personal brand is broader…
  • Christopher Jones's hands have channeled visual magic into comics and graphic novels featuring such heroes as Iron Man, Batman, Spider-Man, the Avengers, and the Justice League. The rogues' gallery of villains he's drawn includes the Riddler, False-Face, MODOK, and Gorilla Grod, to name a few. He worked on the cult hit, Superheroes In Love, and he's drawn countless independent and small titles over his career, though his best-known work was probably on Young Justice, which he drew from 2011 to 2…
  • “The hardest thing is I can't control it,” says Greg Berman, reflecting on the often fickle and fleeting nature of success as an artist. “I don't get to control what parts I get, I only get to audition.” Even getting an audition can be out of his hands, though, and the young actor/comic estimates that only about ten percent of his auditions end in a call back, much less paid work. “The thing is, I think I'm doing okay, but it doesn't feel like that, because I hear no so much more than …
  • If literary awards were made of some kind of fabric, say leather or silk, then the belt Marlon James could sew together from them would have one more notch in it this week, and that notch would be Man Booker Prize-shaped. (Admittedly, that's a terrible metaphor. In fact, it may not even be a metaphor. Might count as a simile. I'm just not sure — which is why you don't see Rob Callahan winning the Booker Prize.) In other words, Marlon James just won the Man Booker Prize. He did so in London on …
