Episode No. 15 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist Doug Wheeler and curator Helen A. Harrison.
Wheeler is one of the pioneers of light-and-space art. A major Wheeler was just acquired by the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, which featured Wheeler prominently in its light-and-space survey “Phenomenal.” The museum’s new Wheeler will be on view in downtown San Diego until August. A Wheeler ‘infinity environment’ installation is on view at Chelsea’s David Zwirner Gallery, where visitors have routinely waited in line for an hour or longer to see the piece.
On the second segment, Helen A. Harrison, the director of the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center joins me to talk about a new exhibition she’s curated for the Archives of American Art in Washington. Titled “Memories Arrested in Space,” the show comes from the AAA’s collection and celebrates the 100th anniversary of Pollock’s birth.
