Published 25 October 2011

Listen to this episode.

Conversations About Creativity in the 21st Century  

William Pope.L, a critically important interventionist, is one of the artists featured in Radical Presence: Black Performance in Contemporary Art, the current exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art Houston. In 2011, Pope.L presented a magic lantern show titled Blink for Prospect.2 New Orleans. For this project, the artist made a film from more than a thousand images donated by the people of the city. Pope.L projected the film through the back of an old ice cream truck as it was pulled through the streets of the city by volunteers.  

This Fresh Talk episode features the sounds of Blink in motion and a hint of Don Quixote. Sound Editor: Jeff T. Byrd recorded the Pope.L performance on location in New Orleans.
