Episode No. 351 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features curator Britt Salvesen and art historian Bridget Alsdorf.
Salvesen is the curator of “3D: Double Vision” at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The exhibition features objects from mass culture, photography and fine art in which makers exploit the nature of perception and binocular vision, the way our brains turn what our two eyes see into a single image. It is on view through March 31, 2019. (Yes, really.) The outstanding exhibition catalogue is both a good read and a fascinating object in its own right. It was copublished by LACMA and DelMonico Prestel. Amazon offers it for $38.
On the second segment, art historian Bridget Alsdorf discusses her contribution to “Women Artists in Paris, 1850-1900,” which is now at the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Mass. Alsdorf, who teaches at Princeton University, wrote an essay titled “Painting the Femme Peintre” for the exhibition catalogue. It was published by Yale University Press and American Federation of Arts. Amazon offers it for $43.
Air date: July 26, 2018.
