This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features Stephanie Barron, the curator of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s major retrospective of Ken Price. The exhibition is in member previews and opens to the public on Sept. 16.
This early Price, from SFMOMA’s collection, is a super example of Price’s often wickedly erotic work. Orifices such as the one here would recur in his work for three decades. On this week’s show, Barron and I discuss orifices in Price’s work and how they evolved during his career.
Price is a sculptor who worked with clay, paint and forms rooted in whimsy, erotics and the history of sculpture across many cultures. He died in February at age 77.
Barron is LACMA’s senior curator of modern art. Her exhibition credits include co-curating with Maurice Tuchman a retrospective of David Hockney, an exhibition of Hockney’s portraits and a series of landmark exhibitions on German modern and contemporary art.
