The One Way Street to Pit Beef

For this episode of Conversations Gary Kachadourian is interviewed by Jack Livingston. Gary is a visual artist and curator born in 1957 in Baltimore, Maryland. He makes pencil drawings of everyday places and objects – like giant dumpsters, chain link fences, and the interior of his own bathroom. Gary’s drawings are designed to be photo-copied and enlarged to the actual size of his subjects. These giant Xeroxes are exhibited, and also distributed as printed booklets, prints, posters, or 3D objects.

Gary is a recipient of a Mary Sawyers Baker Prize, the Trawick Prize, a Maryland State Arts Council Individual Artist Grant, and a Joan Mitchell Painters and Sculptors Grant. He has exhibited his work at the Baltimore Museum of Art, participates each year in the New York Art Book Fair, and has been included in many exhibitions nationwide.

From 1987 through 2009 Kachadourian served as Visual Arts Coordinator for the City of Baltimore for the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts where he coordinated grant programs, exhibitions for Artscape, the city’s mural program, and numerous temporary public arts projects in the city of Baltimore. The artist was interviewed in his home in Towson, Maryland during the Summer of 2015.
