Episode No. 2 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist Charline von Heyl and curator Kristen Hileman.
Von Heyl is having a break-through year. Her first museum survey is on view at the Institute of Contemporary Art Philadelphia through February 19. It will thentravel to the ICA Boston. (The show was organized by Jenelle Porter when she was working in Philly.) Next year the Tate Liverpool will launch the first European survey of von Heyl’s work. That exhibition opens on February 24.
Last year von Heyl completed a major commission for the Worcester Art museum’s Wall at WAM program. Inspired by the museum’s 1963 Ellsworth Kelly (see below), the mural remains on view. Von Heyl’s next mural project will be for a museum in Dijon, France.
Because our conversation included a discussion the Worcester mural, the program’s second segment is an outtake from last week’s conversation with Baltimore Museum of Art curator Kristen Hileman about museums and large-scale commissions. We discuss why they usually go to men.
