Episode No. 290 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features a previously aired conversation with artist Pipilotti Rist.
This summer, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston will exhibit two immersive installations that are new to its collection: Pipilotti Rist’s Pixel Forest and Worry Will Vanish. They go on view on June 11 and will remain up through September 17.
Rist, who is based in Zurich, has been the subject of many single-artist museum exhibitions, especially in the last half-decade. Among the museums to give her shows are the Kunsthaus Zurich, the Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art in Seoul, the Hayward in London, the Wexner in Columbus, MoMA in New York and the Pompidou Center in Paris.
The MFA Houston’s new Rists were included in Rist’s 2016 New Museum survey. For images of works discussed on this week’s program, which was recorded on the occasion of that exhibit, see the show page for Episode No. 267.
