A Podcast Blast from the Past, Harry Bouras

Way back in 1982. "Art and Artists," Harry Bouras on WFMT about a Brandl exhibition.

Review of Mark Staff Brandl in Raw Space, Marilyn Sward at ARC, Joanne Carson and Janet Pines Bender at N.A.M.E. October 24, 1982.

One of the most unique, yet most insightful reviews I have ever had of a show of mine. This installation was described by the New Art Examiner in their Guide to the Galleries as a "fine requiem for "personal" art ... poignant yet powerfully uncompromising " and as the only non-trite use of Raw Space in 1982. It was the basis of change from Late Conceptualist to the expanded painting installation combinations I do today.
