This week's Modern Art Notes Podcast features Jack Whitten and was taped in front of a live audience at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego.
MCASD just opened the first Whitten retrospective. Titled "Jack Whitten: Five Decades of Painting," and curated by MCASD's Kathryn Kanjo, the exhibition features 60 canvases from the early 1960s through this year. The show reveals how, at a time when so many artists shrugged off painting, Whitten intensified his interest in the medium by marrying acrylic and canvas to conceptual strategies in an effort to address key issues in art and American society. After it closes in San Diego on January 4, 2015, it will travel to the Walker Art Center and the Wexner Center for the Arts.
