No. 294: Roni Horn

Episode No. 294 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist Roni Horn.

The Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas is showing the first American museum exhibition devoted to Horn’s cast glass sculptures. Eight of them are on view in the Nasher’s Renzo Piano-designed building through August 20. In New York, Hauser & Wirth is presenting the debut of four new Horns, including the photographic series “The Selected Gifts, (1974-2015),” two series of works on paper, “The Dog’s Chorus” (2016), “Th Rose Prblm” (2015), and two recent glass sculptures.

Horn has been mining the intersection of minimalist object making and conceptualism in sculpture, photography and works on paper — and particularly the relationships between discrete objects — since the mid-1970s. In 2009 the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the Institute of Contemporary Art Boston, the Tate Modern and the Collection Lambert in France surveyed her career in an exhibition titled “Roni Horn, aka Roni Horn.” She has had other solo shows at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, the Dia Center for the Arts in New York, among others.

On the program, Horn and host Tyler Green discuss Horn’s ongoing 2007 commission for Artangel Vatnasafn/Library of Water and reference its website.

Air date: June 22, 2017.
