Pals with Bill

1. Bill does seem to have interesting friends.
2. Don’t be scared off by the “pals” thing. These aren’t chummy backslapping conversations between the “cool kids.” They know each other, sure, but there’s not really any “inside” talk to speak of that would alienate the audience.
3. Bill is a generous conversationalist and enough of an autodidact that he can ask relevant and probing questions of people in wide ranging fields and allows enough of himself into the conversation to draw out the other person without making it all about him. Everything comes back to the commonalities of creating or the small “a” artistic process, regardless of the profession.
4. And everything is creating. Finding out that sometimes film editing mistakes are intentionally made in view of the greater vision was fascinating. And when I googled Michael Malice before listening I was like “uh, no” but by the end of the interview I may not have agreed with a lot of things, but I was won over. Museum curation, dance. I imagine if bill interviewed a hedge fund billionaire he’d manage to draw out their humanity and self doubt.

Kristen Gaylord, Museum Curator

Great interview with Kristen Gaylord about what is involved with curating a retrospective exhibit. I look forward to seeing exhibits she is involved in curating at The Amon Carter Museum of American Art which I visit frequently.
