Will Owen Talks Travel, Sound Art, Collaboration, and the Chinatown Bus
This interview with Little Berlin member, Will Owen, reveals a community-spirited, engaged, and thoughtful artist and curator with surprising strategies involving audio, movement, and public transportation. - Artblog Editor


Will Owen is an artist working primarily with design, interactive media, sound…and FOOD! He’s a Little Berlin member who I met in 2014 for a show he curated at that space. He’s a bit of a nomad, living between Philadelphia and New York, where he is an artist in residence at Flux Factory in Queens. So it’s kind of no surprise that some of his curating involves transit, especially subways (he did an audio piece for the Copenhagen subway system) and buses (he’s curated exhibitions on the Chinatown buses between New York, Philadelphia, Boston, and Baltimore). Yes, exhibits on those buses. The 42-minute podcast recorded Oct. 10, 2016 at Moore’s TGMR station covers a lot of territory–geographical and metaphorical–about Will’s practice.

Thank you to The Galleries at Moore TGMR radio project for making this podcast possible, and especially to Matt Kalasky for inviting Artblog to participate in the Moore radio project. Listen to the interview with Will Owen at the TGMR site here.
