Episode No. 234 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features curators Jodi Hauptman and Lynne Ambrosini.
Jodi Hauptman is the curator of the Museum of Modern Art exhibition “Edgar Degas: A Strange New Beauty,” which examines Degas’s monotypes and how he made monotypes into a broader practice. The exhibition includes 120 monotypes and 60 related works, including paintings, drawings, pastels and more. Hauptman was joined in the project by conservator Karl Buchberg, as well as by Heidi Hirschl and Richard Kendall. The exhibition is on view through July 24. Its smart, readable catalogue was published by MoMA.
Hauptman’s previous exhibitions include surveys of Odilon Redon, Georges Seurat’s drawings and Henri Matisse’s cut-outs, which she discussed on MAN Podcast No. 154.
Along with five colleagues, Lynne Ambrosini is the co-curator of “Daubigny, Monet, Van Gogh: Impressions of Landscape.” The exhibition examines Charles-Francois Daubigny and his impact on 19th-century European landscape painting. It will be on view at Cincinnati’s Taft Museum of Art through May 29. The exhibition’s excellent, richly illustrated catalogue was published by the National Galleries of Scotland.
