Episode No. 32 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features curators Joseph Rishel and George Shackelford.
Rishel is the curator of “Gauguin, Cezanne, Matisse: Visions of Arcadia,” a major exhibition that opens June 20 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Shackelford, who was the head of European art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston before decamping for the Kimbell, contributed a catalogue essay on the MFAB’s great Gauguin, Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going? (1897-98).
Rishel is the senior curator of European painting before 1900 at the PMA. His previous exhibitions include a major 1996 Cezanne retrospective and 2009’s “Cezanne and Beyond,” which surveyed Cezanne’s influence on generations of painters.
Shackelford is the second guest on the program. He and host Tyler Green talk about Gauguin — and a particularly dramatic moment in Shackelford’s catalogue essay.
