Jack Whitten

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. 

This is the second time Whitten has been on The MAN Podcast. Last year he talked with host Tyler Green on the occasion of an exhibition at the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University. 

The image above is a detail of Whitten’s Pink Psyche Queen (1973), in the collection of the MCA Chicago. It’s one of the ‘squeegee’ paintings that Whitten and Green discuss on this week’s program.

Cory Arcangel

This weekend the New York Art Book Fair is underway at MoMA PS1. Among the highlights of the fair is the availability of new projects by artist Cory Arcangel, including a new monograph that is now available in the US for the first time, a limited-edition print available only at the NY Art Book Fair, and much more. (It’s Cory Arcangel, so of course there’s more!)

Cory Arcangel was the lead guest on Episode No. 25 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast. The image above is a detail from the installation of Arcangel’s MIG 29 Soviet Fighter and Clouds (2005), from the collection of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery.
