I think it was early 2019 that I went to see Tracy Molis’ last show at Kai Matsumiya. There were two types of paintings on view: paintings of artifacts inspired by an archaeological drawing class she was teaching at Columbia, and then paintings of stills from a Rage Against The Machine music video… a different type of artifact. In some ways, this re-released podcast in honor of her next show at the gallery feels like a dusty dug up artifact, a remnant from the “before times.” Enjoy this time capsule! It’s one of our most downloaded episodes.
