Hiroshi Sugimoto, Sea of Buddha, 1995.
This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts curator Francesca Herndon-Consagra, who joins me to discuss “Reflections of the Buddha,” on view at the Pulitzer through March 10. Among the topics we discuss is how Buddhism informed the work of Pulitzer architect Tadao Ando, a non-Buddhist. The museum recently published its online catalogue for the show. No one does this exhibition-specific micro-sites better than the Pulitzer: The pictures are fantastic and plentiful and there’s plenty of smart information available.
The first guest on the program is trickster-cum-artist Tom Friedman, whose first New York show in six years opens this weekend at Chelsea’s Luhring Augustine gallery. Friedman is also included in "Lifelike," a major exhibition opening this month at the Walker Art Center. The show will travel to the New Orleans Museum of Art, MCASD and to the Blanton.
