Episode No. 347 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artists Thomas Scheibitz and B. Ingrid Olson.
Thomas Scheibitz is included in “Inherent Structure” at the Wexner Center for the Arts. The exhibition features 16 artists who complicate abstract painting’s traditional association with chance and aesthetic purity with work that addresses concerns that range from an exploration of materials and paints to the artists’ sociopolitical interests. The exhibition was curated by Michael Goodson and is on view through August 12.
Scheibitz is a Berlin-based painter and sculptor known for developing a distinct abstract language compiles references to objects and forms into colorful wholes. In 2005 Scheibitz represented Germany at the Venice Biennale in a two-person presentation with Tino Sehgal. The Museum for Modern Art in Frankfurt presented his first retrospective in 2012. Other major solo exhibitions have been at the Kunstmuseum Bonn, the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin, and the Camden Arts Centre in London.
B. Ingrid Olson is included in “Being: New Photography 2018,” which is on view at the Museum of Modern Art, New York through August 19. The exhibition was curated by Lucy Gallun. Concurrently, Olson is in “Picture Fiction: Kenneth Josephson and Contemporary Photography,” which was curated by Michael Darling and Lauren Fulton. It’s at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago through December 30. She’s also in a two-person show at San Francisco’s Jessica Silverman Gallery through July 14. Olson’s work, which includes both photography and sculptural elements uses the body, her body, to explore gender, architecture, space, and form. The Albright-Knox Art Gallery just concluded Olson’s first museum show, “B. Ingrid Olson: Forehead and Brain,” which was curated by Holly E. Hughes.
