Joe and Matthew join Michi Meko at his studio as he prepares for not one, but two exhibitions in the same week. The creative struggle and permanence versus impermanence in art are discussed.
Sun Ra however is the catalyst for this gathering. And Sun Ra leads to an examination of Afrofuturism, altered destiny, jazz, and artist personas.
Michi scores very respectably on the Art Speak Red Flags. Namechecks go to Wynwood, Sam Gilliam, Robert Rauschenberg, Thornton Dial, Black Herman, and Daddy D’z BBQ.
More ice is required.
