Episode No. 115 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist Sedrick Huckaby and architect Mark Carroll.
Huckaby’s Hidden in Plain Site, an 18-foot-by-14-foot painting, is on view at the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth through February 2. Hidden in Plain Site is one of Huckaby’s quilt paintings, a series of works that are simultaneously abstract and not, simultaneously flat and pushed up against the picture plane, and not and filled with hidden meaning — or not.
Huckaby teaches at the University of Texas at Arlington. He has exhibited extensively through mostly Texas and New England — he earned his undergraduate degree at Boston University and his MFA from Yale — and he’s won just about every major grant an artist could win, including grants from the Guggenheim Foundation, the Joan Mitchell Foundation and a Louis Comfort Tiffany Award. Earlier this month solo shows of his work closed at Art League Houston and at Valley House Gallery in Dallas. His paintings are in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the MFA Boston and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, among others.
On the second segment, Mark Carroll, the partner at Renzo Piano Building Workshop responsible for working on recently opened Piano Pavilion at the Kimbell Art Museum, discusses his new projects. Among his other Piano Workshop projects have been the Menil Collection and the forthcoming Whitney and Harvard Art Museums.
