Episode No. 28 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features curators James Rondeau and Keith Davis.
Rondeau is the curator of a new retrospective of Roy Lichtenstein. He is the head of the contemporary art department at the Art Institute of Chicago, talking about his new Roy Lichtenstein retrospective. Rondeau co-organized the exhibition with Sheena Wagstaff, the head of modern and contemporary art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The exhibition is the first career-length survey of Lichtenstein’s art and the first retrospective of the artist in 18 years. Currently in member previews, the show opens at the AIC on May 22 before traveling to the National Gallery of Art, the Tate Modern and to the Centre Pompidou. The exhibition catalogue is published by Yale University Press.
On the second segment, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art curator Keith Davis talks about “Timothy H. O’Sullivan: The King Survey Photographs,” which is on view in Kansas City through September 2. The exhibition is accompanied by a fantastic Yale University Press-published catalogue, a must-own for lovers of both American art and photography.
