This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features Catherine Yass.
Her large-screen projection Lighthouse (2011) is on view at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in the exhibition “Fluid Motion.” The installation, which will remain on view through June, was curated by Al Miner. Later this year Lighthouse will go on view at the Museum of Modern Art, Vienna. The image above is a still from Lighthouse.
Yass’ exhibition credits include a 2011 mid-career retrospective at De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill-on-Sea, England and presentations at Washington’s Phillips Collection, the Stedelijk-Hertogenbosch Museum and the Saint Louis Art Museum. Her work is in the collections of the Tate, The Jewish Museum, New York, The National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, and the Scottish Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh. She was short-listed for the 2002 Turner Prize.
On the second segment, the program airs the fourth of its four segments on the Getty Conservation Institute’s work on Jackson Pollock’s landmark Mural (1943). The painting is in the collection of the University of Iowa Museum of Art. GCI conservator Laura Rivers updates us on the work done on the painting and what Getty scientists learned about the creation of the artwork.
With the conservation of Mural complete, the painting will be on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum from March 11 through June 1. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue that details the conservation of the painting. Amazon lists it at $20.
