ARTSPEAK RADIO host & producer Maria Vasquez Boyd talks with Bruce Hartman & Karen Gerety Folk with the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, GDD Boombox creator Gus Davis & Paul McDaniel, and writer/performer Joel Barrett.

Executive Director Bruce Hartman and Curator of Education Karen Gerety Folk represent the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art at Johnson County Community College in Overland Park, Kansas. Bruce was director of the JCCC Gallery of Art from its inception in 1990. Bruce is the Nerman Museum’s chief curator and oversees exhibition organization and manages and develops the college’s permanent art collection.

Public Art Review magazine named JCCC as one of the top 10 college campuses for public art in America, citing the artwork installed throughout the campus. The Nerman Museum has one of the top internationally acclaimed collections of emerging and established artists today, and we present many of the region’s most important exhibitions of leading-edge contemporary art. Admission is always free. This year we are celebrating our 10th anniversary!

Karen joined the Nerman Museum staff eleven years ago when the Nerman Museum was under construction. She develops dynamic educational resources for JCCC academic use and the broader community, including youth, families and lifelong learners. Through various educational programs and materials, individuals of all ages and backgrounds may explore contemporary art, develop critical thinking skills and expand visual literacy at the Nerman Museum.

Joel Barrett is an LGBTQ writer, speaker and mentor. I am a survivor of ex-gay therapy. Some call it conversion therapy, repairative therapy or just plan counseling, but the goals are the same: To eliminate or reduce homosexual desires and actions. Needless to say, it didn’t work.
I am a recovering fundamental Baptist. If you don’t know what a fundamental Baptist is, I can explain: We thought the Southern Baptists were liberal.
I was a Baptist pastor married to a woman living the midwest raising our three children. Yes, I spent over 15 years in ministry before exiting that line of work to focus completely on becoming fixing myself so I could save my marriage and live as a straight man. I always knew I was gay, but being gay wasn’t an option in the world I lived in so I kept trying to make it go away through church, prayer, scripture, and the pursuit of godliness because everyone told me that being gay was a sin and probably just about the worst sin anyone could commit.

Today I am happily married to my husband of over a decade. I share my colorful story with audiences everywhere to encourage them to live each day as their authentic, powerful and beautiful self.

Yet again, Hollywood mistakes vulgarity for wit. Charlie Day and Ice Cube star in “Fist Fight,” an R-rated comedy about a wimpy teacher challenged to an afterschool brawl by a testy fellow educator. This mean-spirited vehicle manages to pummel a few crass laughs from the audience, but it may make you want to punch the screenwriters.

 

Style over substance isn’t necessarily a bad thing. But in the case of the gothic horror flick “A Cure for Wellness,” the style chokes out any substance. Filmmaker Gore Verbinski, best known for the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies, allows the visual razzle-dazzle to overwhelm an interesting premise and a strong cast. Dane DeHann is a business executive who travels to a creepy health resort in the Swiss Alps to bring back his vacationing boss, but winds up a patient instead. Overlong and overblown, “A Cure for Wellness” is too dark to be campy fun.

 

“Toni Erdmann” is an Oscar-nominated black comedy from Germany about a man who creates a fake persona to worm his way back into the life of his estranged daughter, an ambitious corporate type. It’s brilliant in a number of ways, but its deliberate pace, considerable length and frank sexuality may be off-putting to many viewers.

 

“Neruda” is a Chilean film about a policeman, played by Gael Garcia Bernal, who pursues the titular Communist poet who went into hiding in the 1940s to escape persecution by Chile’s right wing government. Beautifully shot and produced, Pablo Larrain’s film isn’t so much about the title character as it is a poetic view of obsession.

 

The great Chinese filmmaker Zhang Yimou tries his hand at an English-language, Hollywood-style spectacle, complete with hoards of monsters and an American star, Matt Damon.  The visuals are spectacular, but this fantasy action movie lacks the depth of most of Zhang Yimou’s work.


Susan and Russ review a sentimental adaptation of W. Bruce Cameron’s bestselling novel. It’s the story of a dog (voiced by Josh Gad) who is reincarnated a number of times until he discovers the reason for his existence. The film was directed by Lasse Hallstrom (“Chocolate”) and stars Dennis Quaid and Peggy Lipton.

Russ and Susan take a look at the latest melodrama from acclaimed Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar. “Julieta” has all of the splashy color and over-the-top flourishes that are the hallmark of Almodovar’s films. It’s the story of a mother-daughter relationship. In a series of flashbacks, we learn how the two became estranged. Emma Suarez plays the elder Julieta and Adriana Ugarta plays her younger self.
