Jacob Chris Hammes– artist, teacher, curator, and founder of the gallery Pilot Projects– met with us in his gallery last week. We learned about Pilot Project’s inception and mission, as well as Hammes’ own artistic practice. Did you know he tells jokes? In this podcast, he explains his “selfish” love for curating and being surrounded by artwork, tells us how they came up with the name “Pilot Projects”, and how the space was funded. He also speaks with us about “pond theory,” and his upcoming solo show at Information, 2024 E Westmoreland St, on April 13th, 2019.

Thank you to Morgan Nitz for recording and editing this podcast interview. More information about Chris Hammes at his website. More information about Pilot Projects at their website.

The podcast interview is 31:40 minutes long. ARTBLOG RADIO is now available on Apple (iTunes and Apple Podcasts) and Spotify, and available via RSS. This podcast was recorded and edited by Morgan Nitz.
