This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features Serge Guilbaut, the editor of the recently published "Chatting with Henri Matisse: The Lost 1941 Interview." This week’s show was taped live at Getty Center.
"Chatting with Matisse," which was published by Getty Publications, is a fascinating book: In 1941 art historian Pierre Courthion conducted an extensive interview with Matisse that was seen at the time as a vital assessment of his career. But just weeks before the book was to come out, Matisse suppressed its publication. Scholars have known about the interview for some time, but it’s never been published, or even widely available, until now. This beautiful new publication includes essays by Guilbaut, Yve-Alain Bois and Laurence Bertrand Dorleac. Chris Miller translated the interview.
Guilbaut is professor emeritus at The University of British Columbia. His previous projects include the book “How New York Stole the Idea of Modern Art: Abstract Expressionism, Freedom, and the Cold War.”
Today on MANPodcast.com we’ll be featuring paintings and drawings Matisse made of Lydia Delectorskaya. From 1935 until the end of his life in 1954, Delectorskaya served as Matisse’s secretary, model — and maybe paramour. She was intensely involved with the 1941 interview featured on this week’s program, especially working to edit the text. 
This is Matisse’s second major painting featuring Delectorskaya, Pink Nude (1935). It’s in the collection of the Baltimore Museum of Art.

This second guest on this week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast is Sarah Oppenheimer, a New York-based artist whose architectural interventions challenge our perception of space.
This week the Baltimore Museum of Art will re-open its remodeled contemporary wing. As part of the re-opening the museum will unveil two commissioned works by Oppenheimer that will be permanently on view at the museum. W-12 (2012), shown in several pictures here, is installed across from this untitled 1962 Tony Smith painting (which is in the BMA’s collection). It’s a striking juxtaposition, one that reminds the viewer that what she sees in the Smith is kind of how she’s seeing through the Oppenheimer.

This week the Baltimore Museum of Art will re-open its remodeled contemporary wing. As part of the re-opening the museum will unveil two commissioned works by Oppenheimer that will be permanently on view at the museum. This is a detail of one of them, W-12, as seen from the second floor of the BMA (no Photoshop here!): As the viewer looks forward, on the left side she sees across the museum’s staircase. As she looks forward and to the right, she sees what’s… beneath her!

Sculptor/architectural intervener Sarah Oppenheimer is the second guest on this week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast. We discussed this piece — her brand-new P-0101 (2012), one of two commissions permanently installed at the Baltimore Museum of Art — on this week’s show. It’s installed in/between the museum’s Cone Wing of modern art and its newly remodeled contemporary wing.

(If it looks like the guy in the staircase is looking up but can see down, it’s because that’s exactly what the piece does…)

This week the Baltimore Museum of Art will re-open its remodeled contemporary wing. As part of the re-opening the museum will unveil two commissioned works by Oppenheimer that will be permanently on view at the museum. This is one of them, W-12, as seen from one of three vantage points: The museum’s contemporary wing stairwell. If it looks like the camera is positioned to look up, that’s because it is. If it seems as if the camera is seeing someone on the floor below, that’s because it is. Pretty wild, no?

Next week the Baltimore Museum of Art will re-open its remodeled contemporary wing. As part of the re-opening the museum will unveil two commissioned works by Oppenheimer that will be permanently on view at the museum. This is one of them, P-0101 (2012). It consists of a giant diagonal cut in a limestone wall and an aluminum-and-glass insertion. It’s less peek-a-boo than it is ‘where am I?’

There are no photo-tricks going on here: If the viewer looks through the aperture to the left, she sees straight ahead into a staircase. Through the right aperture, she sees the BMA gallery immediately below where she is standing. Art as real-world special-effect!

Artist Sarah Oppenheimer is the guest on the second segment of this week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast. She’s just made two permanent installations for the Baltimore Museum of Art, works that will go on view when the BMA re-opens its contemporary wing next week. The first photos are just in!
This is a picture of W-12 (2012), a matte aluminum sculpture installed between the two floors of the BMA’s contemporary wing. This view is looking up at the piece (in the ceiling) from the ground floor, and at a Robert Motherwell hanging on a wall on the second floor. Think about that for a second….
