Episode No. 114 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artists Saskia Olde Wolbers and Charles Simonds.
Wolbers’ Pareidolia (2011) is included in the Aspen Art Museum exhibition “Trapping Lions in the Scottish Highlands,” which presents ways in which “narrative complexity” is presented in recent art. “Trapping Lions” is on view through February 2. The museum’s short publication on the show is available for free download.
The London-based Wolbers has exhibited extensively mostly in Europe. Last year the M-Museum Leuven outside Brussels presented “Kinemacolor,” an exhibition of four Wolbers video works. Next year, Wolbers will present an Artangel commission at 87 Hackford Road in London, where Vincent van Gogh lived during his time in London. Wolbers has also exhibited at the Vienna Secession, at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, the Saint Louis Art Museum and at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. Her work is in the collection of the Hirshhorn and the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
On the second segment, Charles Simonds discusses his career, including the recent presentation of his work in “New Jersey as Non-Site,” which recently closed at the Princeton University Art Museum. The show’s excellent catalogue, produced by PUAM and distributed by Yale University Press, is available here. Simonds has exhibited around the world since the early 1970s. His most recent solo shows have included an exhibition at New York’s Knoedler Gallery in 2011 and at Washington’s Dumbarton Oaks in 2009.
Air date: Jan. 9, 2014.
