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 Whitten’s Epsilon Group I (1976), from the collection of the Dallas Museum of Art.

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.

It’s an example of the ‘squeegee’ paintings that Whitten made in the early 1970s using a tool he called his “developer” (second picture). Whitten pushed the ‘developer’ across acrylic paint he had poured onto canvas.

George Caleb Bingham's Rivers

This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast — our 150th show! — features curator and historian Nenette Luarca-Shoaf and artist Sonya Clark.

Luarca-Shoaf is one of the curators of "Navigating the West: George Caleb Bingham and the River," which opens at the Amon Carter Museum on October 2. Bingham was the first great American artist to take the newly opened trans-Appalachian West as his subject. A Missourian, Bingham paintings of waterways, typically presumed to be those in his native state but in reality images that filled in for the river culture that dominated trade and the movement of people through the Ohio, Missouri and Mississippi River valleys, represent America’s first major visual grappling with the enormity and variety of our continent. ”Navigating the West” examines how Bingham both created his art and some of America’s first ideas about the West. The show will travel to the St. Louis Art Museum and to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The catalogue is published by Yale University Press. Luarca-Shoaf is one of the half-dozen or so curators and conservators who worked on the exhibition. 

This is a detail from Bingham’s Fur Traders Descending the Missouri (1845) from the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

On the second segment, Sonya Clark talks about work included in "State of the Art" a large survey exhibition at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. It was organized by Don Bacigalupi and Chad Alligood and is on view through January 19, 2015 . Clark is the chair of the department of craft and material studies at VCU. She has exhibited widely across the United States received numerous awards and fellowships, including a Pollock-Krasner Award, a Rockefeller Foundation residency and in 2011 she was named a United States Artists fellow. 

This year’s MAN Podcast survey: Finally, later this fall The MAN Podcast will begin its fourth season. Each fall we conduct a listener survey in an effort to learn a little bit more about our audience. Please help keep The MAN Podcast free to download by completing this survey. It shouldn’t take more than about five minutes. Thanks.
