Episode No. 10 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artists Zoe Strauss and Kianja Strobert.
Strauss discusses the new exhibition that surveys her 10-year “Under I-95” project at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The show opens on Saturday and is on view through April 22. A terrific catalogue accompanies the exhibition and includes particularly strong essays by Strauss and exhibition curator Peter Barberie. Strauss and the Philly Museum have also installed 54 billboards featuring her work throughout Philadelphia. The museum has set up a dedicated website for the billboard project. It includes images of the billboards, a map and even some help with driving the circuit. Zoe Strauss’s own website/blog is here.
Strobert’s first New York solo show is on view at Zach Feuer Gallery. Clyfford Still is one of Strobert’s major influences, so she and host Tyler Green discuss some favorite Still paintings from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Albright-Knox, SFMOMA and the Hirshhorn.
