Cargo Space on Bad at Sports
If you like inane discussion, we talk with the Bad at Sports crew about the Cargo Space Chicago/Milwaukee exhibition.
- 1:06 pm
Music, art, theatre, and a legendary parade—there’s more happening than we can even count this month.
Thanks, Chicago Magazine!

Here’s a time-lapse of the trip between Steuben, WI and Amish Market Square in St. Charles, MN. 107 miles of rage-less road shot as we left the Acre residency, en route to the Walker Art Center on August 8, 2014.

The Cargo Space: Milwaukee/Chicago installation continues apace. On Monday participating artists met at A&D Gallery in the south loop. Today, the very handsome poster (Photo by David A. Brown, awesome bus paint by Houston’s own Dual) arrived today, as did the signage. The show opens next week, but that won’t be the end of it, as the exhibition will continue to evolve and change throughout its run. August 22 will see the bus move up I-90 for the Milwaukee installation of the exhibition at INOVA. Both shows are linked, will mirror, be distinct and will continue to change for the next month. If you’re in either town, drop in.

It was a busy day at the Poor Farm for The Cargo Space. David Krueger performed, Rahul Mitra completed another Box City, and Bad at Sports documented (and broadcast) the first meeting of Chicago and Milwaukee artists. It’s not all dominos and river floats up here. Although, we did that too.

Do It Yourself RV just posted a long write-up on Cargo Space. If Doing It Yourself is your thing, this website is the place. It’s an always informative resource!

A troubling little leak under the sink was tracked back to a busted O-ring in the cold water tap. Lesson learned: don’t over tighten. That’s how we cracked it.
It’s funny how something so tiny can cause so much trouble. The leak itself wasn’t bad, but we had to find it, shut off the water, drain the system, find a replacement, and then… replace it.
We’ve officially added another whistle-stop on our journey. There will be a lecture about Cargo Space on Monday, October 6, at Washington University in St. Louis. Check back for more details, closer to the day.

An utter disappointment as an air conditioner, this little unit did do a fair job at beating back the morning chill at the Poor Farm. Still, don’t buy this brand. Phase 3 will see a more comprehensive HVAC solution.

Cargo Space ‘selfie’ at The Poor Farm. TX to WI. 1,225 miles without a hitch (discounting the blown tire).

On the road, Day 6. We stopped for the night on the shores of Lake Winnebago, between Fon du Lac and Oshkosh. The exterior paint job slows a lot of traffic, and has been the backdrop for many ‘selfies.’

Missouri loves company. Today we’re taking the slow and steady route from Memphis to Chicago. Truck stop stops every three hours will find us on the shoulders of the Big Shoulders tonight. Tomorrow is a pre-dawn raid on the outskirts, and the we’re aiming the prow straight at Wisconsin.
