Episode No. 240 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artists Joel Shapiro and Linn Meyers.
Joel Shaprio’s newest immersive installation is now on view in an eponymous exhibition at the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas that also includes works on paper and Shapiros from the Nasher’s collection. It’s on view through August 21.
Shapiro is one of the world’s best-known sculptors. His museum exhibition credits include Cologne’s Ludwig Museum, the National Gallery of Canada, the MFA Boston, the Addison Gallery, Munich’s Haus der Kunst, Copenhagen’s Louisiana Museum, and plenty more. His work is in pretty much every major museum collection in America.
On the second segment, Linn Meyers discusses her new 360-degree, installation at Washington’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. Titled Our View From Here, Meyers’ mural covers more than 400 linear feet along the inner-ring galleries of the Hirshhorn’s second level. It will remain on view through May 14, 2017. Among Meyers’ previous credits are solo exhibitions at the Hammer Museum and The Phillips Collection, and group shows at the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh and the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Art.
