In the final episode of this season, Ivan talks to Nicole Marroquin about the Texan experience vs the Michigan experience, how punk music can lead to liberation, learning how to be better from younger generations and leaving breadcrumbs for them, CPS, pedagogy, and how her practice makes the public history of student movements and institutions in Chicago accessible. A truly inspiring conversation and a perfect end to the season!
This week Bad at Sports Center welcomes Nicole Marroquin participant in the DePaul Art Museum exhibition LatinXAmerican and Faculty at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Marroquin's practice ranges from social justice to community organizing to educating public school teachers to archiving microhistories and the work of the photographer Diana Solís. Ryan and Duncan trace her practice through a ruckus and bouncy chat that eventually finds its root in Marroquin's history as a printer and ceramicist. https://www.nicolemarroquin.com/ https://resources.depaul.edu/art-museum/exhibitions/latinx-american/Pages/default.aspx
Nicole Marroquin and Liz Born discuss their years-long collaboration, the challenges of maintaining a creative practice, and hurdling full force into things you swore you’d never try. You can see and purchase the work at hoofprintchicago.com and at Buddy Chicago.
