Episode No. 349 features artist Sylvia Plimack Mangold and curator Naoko Takahatake. Mangold is included in "Studio Visit: Selected Gifts from Agnes Gund," which was organized by MoMA's Ann Temkin and Cara Manes and is on view through July 22. Mangold is among the most prominent painters to respond to emerge in the late 1960s in response to a decade dominated by minimalism and pop art. Her paintings, seemingly rooted in realism but often undermining it, played with perspective, flatness, and often engaged the centuries-long tradition of painters making paintings about painting. In 1994 the Albright-Knox Art Gallery organized a major retrospoective of her paintings; two years earlier the University of Michigan Museum of Art organized a works on paper survey. Her work has long been collected by major museums such as the Kunstmuseum Winterthur in Switzerland, the Saint Louis Art Museum, the Nelson-Atkins, the Metropolitan, Brooklyn, the Whitney and more. On the second segment, Los Angeles County Museum of Art curator Naoko Takahatake discusses "The Chiaroscuro Woodcut in Renaissance Italy," which is on view at LACMA through September 16. The exhibition charts the rapid and rich development of the chairoscuro woodcut from its introduction to Italy in 1516 until the end of the sixteenth century. The exhibition is the first major presentation on the subject in the United States. The fantastic exhibition catalogue was published by LACMA and DelMonico Prestel. Amazon offers it for $59.Read more »

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.
