2 days ago
**In stereo** Episode No. 298 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features sound artists Bill Fontana and Christina Kubisch. This is the first of two MAN Podcast episodes spotlighting artists in "Soundtracks," a new exhibition at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art that examines the role of sound in art. The show, which was curated by Rudolf Frieling and Tanya Zimbardo, will remain on view through January 1, 2018. It features nearly three dozen artworks that are or include sound. SFMOMA has built out an extensive digital infrastructure for the show, including an exhibition guide, a catalogue, and interviews with artists such as Jacqueline Kiyomi Gordon, Christina Kubisch, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, and Richard T. Walker. This week's MAN Podcast features exhibition artists whose work makes the invisible audible. San Francisco-based artist Bill Fontana has been making what he calls 'sound sculptures' for 40 years. He's exhibited all over the world, including at the Venice Biennale, Madrid's Reina Sofia, London's Tate Modern, New York's Madison Square Park, and more. Christina Kubisch is a Berlin-area-based composer and artist who works with electromagnetic induction, making both walks for which listeners/viewers wear a special set of headphones and move through a city to hear sounds to which Kubitsch has guided them on a map, and sound sculptures that feature sound related to their physical presence. Kubisch has created dozens of electrical walks all over the world, has been featured in the Venice Biennale, Documenta and in scores of group and solo shows.

An exceptionally informative interview of the Italian Futurism exhibition art the Guggenheim Museum. I had very recently seen the exhibition and this interview with the curator was engaging, knowledgeable and highly pertinent. It greatly increased my understanding of the era and improved my appreciation of the work. The interviewer asked exactly the questions i wanted to have answered for both information, analysis and interpretation.

I not only like this show - I need this show
I'm a full time artist who understands that it's important for me to grow and learn more about art in order to make better work. I really like this show as it's opened my mind/eyes to artists who I may never have heard of had it not been on this podcast. If you're an artist, you owe it to yourself to give this a try. I'm a big fan.
