Collin Lloyd : December 3rd 2014

Winter is upon us listeners. How are you fairing? Well, I hope…

Today’s guest is Collin Lloyd. The above video piece is a collaboration between him and his spouse Alexia Serpentini. If you guys remember, I spoke to Alexia during the first year of Blind Date. And much like her interview, we ended up talking for quite awhile, going all over the place. With that said, you may need to be ready to get comfy for this one, or make this two sittings…

Collin’s work centers around themes of masculinity, femininity, gender, identity construction, and his inner life. Besides his sculpture and performance work, he has been writing a novel based on his dreams which form a consistent ongoing story. As you’ll hear in our discussion, narratives are something quite close to his heart as well as his work. We also touch on gender inequality and its results in many parts of culture.

You can learn more about his work at his website, collinlloyd.com.

Happy listening…

Only a week away…

Oh, hi November. The holidays are around the corner, as is Blind Date’s first hosted event Glances: An evening of short films and performances. For only five dollars, you get to see work from creative people of Louisville, its sister cities, and beyond. This will be an evening of short films, music videos, and visual/auditory performances showcased at the Clifton Center’s Eifler Theatre. Doors at 7, show should start around 7:15 (so please don’t be late). You can find out more information on the Blind Date Facebook page, in the events section.

Also, be sure to take some time to listen to this week’s episode (posted on Wednesday as always), featuring a hearty discussion with Mark James. Mark is the gallery director of Open. Open provides a forum for artists of all mediums including visual, audio, and performance art, helping them to develop their vision and then provide them a venue to present their work. It is a contemporary art gallery that houses four resident artists, with five studio spaces.
