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.

Sculptor/architectural mess-with-er Sarah Oppenheimer is the second guest on this week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast. We discussed this piece — her brand-new W-12 (2012) at the Baltimore Museum of Art — on this week’s show. (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?’

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.

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, W-12 (2012). 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….

This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features the new Museum of Fine Arts Houston exhibition "War Photography: Images of Armed Conflict and its Aftermath." Anne Wilkes Tucker, the show’s co-curator (along with MFAH’s Will Michaels and Natalie Zelt) joins me to discuss the exhibition and the related 600-page book from the MFAH and the Yale University Press.

The show, which opens this weekend and runs through February 3, includes almost 500 objects, images by more than 280 photographers on six continents, all of it covering 165 years of war. The exhibition and catalogue are presented thematically, with sections on war-related topics such as recruitment, training, daily routine, patrol, the wait, the fight itself, leisure time and more.

On the second segment I talk with Sarah Oppenheimer, a New York-based artist whose architectural interventions challenge our perception of space. 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 on view permanently at the museum. Photographs of the installations were unavailable as of show-time. When they become available I’ll add them here and feature them via social media, especially on our new Facebook page.
