Episode 06 - Jamie Foster: The Chorus

March 31st, 2019

Jamie is an artist and fabricator who has worked on extensive sculptural projects with artists such as Banks Violet and Robert Gober. He reminisces about how he got into fabrication, being a young artist trying to make ends meet in the pre-2008 New York art world and what he wishes he could go back tell himself now he has a little more experience. We discuss how technical skills can highlight class distinctions in MFA programs and the relationship labor has within the art world. We admit to making art for a chorus of voices in our heads and what it would mean to quit. Jaime’s favorite tool is a pre-drill counter sink drill bit.
