A Conversation with Michelle Blade
by Brian Andrews and Patricia Maloney
Brian Andrews and Patricia Maloney sat down with Oakland-based artist Michelle Blade on February 20 in her storefront studio, which is also the location of the alternative space she created in 2009 to encourage dialogue around the connections between art and life. It was the day following the opening for her solo exhibition, “Blow As Deep As You Want to Blow,” on view at Triple Base galleryin San Francisco through March 21. Their conversation tackled a range of topics, from the economic realities that perennially plague artists in the Bay Area to the pleasures of walking across a painting. This is the second collaboration between Art Practical and Bad At Sports.
