apexart and Bad at Sports are collaborating once again for their Resident Talk with current apexart Inbound Resident, Nanna Nordström, visiting from Stockholm, Sweden. Amanda Browder and Tom Sanford from the Bad at Sports team will interview Nanna in the depths of a once-hospital out in Brooklyn, getting to the bottom of what exactly the apexart Residency is, what her experiences have been during her month in New York, and new influences the city has brought.
Amanda Browder is a visual artist who lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Born in Missoula, MT, Amanda moved to Chicago in 2001 to teach at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and to later help start the Bad at Sports podcast with Duncan MacKenzie and Richard Holland. In 2007 Amanda moved to New York and now heads the NY Bureau. As a fine-artist Amanda has shown nationally and internationally and last year she received a grant from Brooklyn Arts Council and the NPArt.
Tom Sanford is a New York based artist. He is represented by Leo Koenig Inc and Galleri Faurschou and has exhibited all over the world. He is a contributor to Bad at Sports and one of their New York correspondents.
Nanna Nordström is a Swedish artist based in Stockholm, Sweden. She was born 1981 in Jönköping, Sweden and before going on to the arts she studied agriculture. She got her art education at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm and at the Akademie der bildenden Kunste in Vienna. She has exhibited both in Sweden and abroad. Nordström is one of the holders of the IASPIS (The Swedish Arts Grants Committee's International Program) studio grant 2011 and she is currently living and working in Dresden, Germany.

Nanna Nordstrom's residency is supported in part by the Swedish Arts Grants Committee's International Program.
Over the course of the series, the Bad at Sports team will grill and provoke apexart residents in increasingly ridiculous scenarios while talking art, residencies, the role of conversation, and the inspiration that comes with travel.
