Episode No. 3 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features curator Debra Bricker Balken and curator and critic Ed Schad.
Bricker Balken is the curator of “John Marin: Modernism at Midcentury,” an exhibition on view now at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art in Fort Worth. It explores the work Marin made between 1933, when he was 63 years old, and the end of his life twenty years later, and demonstrates how he tackled oil paint even as he continued working in watercolor. The show was co-organized for the Portland Museum of Art and by the Addison Gallery of American Art.
On the second segment, Ed Schad and host Tyler Green look at artists whose work is featured in exhibitions and scholarship launched as part of the Getty-funded Pacific Standard Time initiative and who they think deserve in-depth, sustained attention from curators, critics and collectors. Schad is an assistant curator at The Broad Art Foundation and a critic who publishes in ArtSlant magazine, in LA Weekly and on I Call It ORANGES.
