Episode No. 19 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artists Mark Bradford and Steve Roden.
A mid-career survey of Bradford’s work is on view at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. (Also, a couple of large-scale works are installed across the street from SFMOMA, at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.) The exhibition was curated for the Wexner Center for the Arts by Christopher Bedford in 2010. The show has traveled to the ICA Boston, the MCA Chicago and to the Dallas Museum of Art. San Francisco is its final stop.
This week’s program also features something new: Sound! Over the course of today’s program and each MAN Podcast, you’ll hear the entire piece artist Steve Roden made for the show. Roden is a painter, a sculptor and he works in various time-based media. Curator Howard Fox organized a 20-year retrospective of Roden’s work for Pasadena’s The Armory Center for the Arts in 2010. Roden’s work is in the collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Blanton Museum at the University of Texas and more.
