This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features Joyce Pensato. The Santa Monica Museum of Art is currently showing “I Killed Kenny,” a survey of Pensato’s work. Curated by Jeffrey Uslip, the exhibition will be on view through August 17.
This is Pensato’s first solo museum show. She’s been the focus of a three-person show at the Saint Louis Art Museum (with Mike Kelley and Raymond Pettibon), at the Wexner Center for the Arts and more. Her work is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, SFMOMA, the Hammer Museum and the Dallas Museum of Art, among others.
This is Pensato’s Evil Stan (2007).
On the second segment, Alexander Dumbadze discusses the life of Bas Jan Ader and his new book, “Bas Jan Ader: Death is Elsewhere.” It was published by the University of Chicago Press. It is the most significant book on Ader’s life and work published to date. Dumbadze teaches art history at The George Washington University in Washington.
