Episode No. 220 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artists Sara VanDerBeek and Susan Philipsz.
VanDerBeek is included in “Photo-Poetics: An Anthology” at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. The exhibition, which was curated by Jennifer Blessing and runs through March 23, examines how ten artists use conceptualism-derived ideas to explore studio-based, often still-life and histororically rooted photography. The exhibition’s catalogue was published by the Guggenheim.
The Whitney Museum of American Art, the Hammer Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Cleveland, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen and the Baltimore Museum of Art have each featured solo exhibitions of VanDerBeek’s work. Later this year, Hatje Caantz will publish a monograph on VanDerBeek’s work.
If you’re in New York, VanDerBeek and next week’s MAN Podcast guest, Lisa Oppenheim, will have a conversation at the museum with Guggenheim curators Susan Thompson and Blessing on the evening of January 27. That’s this coming Wednesday.
Among the artists that VanDerBeek and host Tyler Green discuss is Michael Snow, who was featured on Episode No. 117.
Next, a 2013 segment with Susan Philipsz. The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden recently acquired Philipsz’s 2014 Part File Score, and the work goes on view this weekend. (Hear and see the Hamburger Bahnhof version of the work.) The clip is from when when Philipsz’s Study for Strings (2012) was on view at the Museum of Modern Art, and when Sunset Song (2003) was on view at the Hirshhorn (as it is now).
