On 12/13/14 Lindsey Whittle and Clint Basinger held their wedding reception, #spikow, at Cincinnati’s Contemporary Art Center as a way to curate a museum experience. They asked their friends to give them performances as a wedding gift. On 6/13/19 they revisited those performances as part of Whittle’s show, Archives As Action, at CAC. This event was called #spikow2. This interview was part of my performance that night.
