Episode No. 277 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast is a re-broadcast of our May, 2016 interview with Kerry James Marshall.
On March 12, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles opens “Kerry James Marshall: Mastry,” the artist’s first retrospective. Marshall is one of the most significant chronicler’s of the American experience, especially the African-American experience. For 35 years he has worked to add black people and black culture to a Western art historical canon that is mostly built of white faces and stories. The exhibition was curated by Dieter Roelstraete, Helen Molesworth and Ian Alteveer. The exhibition catalogue was published by Skira Rizzoli.
