No. 201: Ann Temkin & Anne Umland, Tamara Schenkenberg

Episode No. 201 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features curators Ann Temkin and Anne Umland, and curator Tamara Schenkenberg.

The program features an extended conversation on “Picasso Sculpture,” which opens today at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The exhibition surveys the sculpture Picasso made over a 62-year period, from 1902 to 1964 and includes about 150 works.

The exhibition is in member previews starting today and opens to the public on September 14. It will remain on view through February 7, 2016. The program’s guests are two of the the show’s co-curators, MoMA chief curator of painting and sculpture Ann Temkin, and her MoMA colleague Anne Umland. Virginie Perdrisot from the Musee national Picasso-Paris is the show’s other co-curator.

Temkin’s previous exhibitions have included retrospectives of Barnett Newman and Constantin Brancusi, and MoMA exhibitions of work by Claes Oldenburg, Ellsworth Kelly as well as 2010’s “Abstract Expressionist New York.” Umland has curated major shows of Joan Miro and Rene Magritte.

On the second segment, Pulitzer Arts Foundation curator Tamara Schenkenberg returns to the program to give us her final take on “Fred Sandback: 64 Three-Part Pieces.” You may recall that this is the Sandback that is cromprised of three lines of yarn that is stretched individually across three adjacent spaces, and that Sandback created the work to have 64 different permutations. Each week since May, the Pulitzer has realized a different permutation of the work. This is the first time the work has been exhibited since 1975. The show closes this weekend.

Air date: September 10, 2015.
