Episode No. 373 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast is a holiday clips episode that features a previously aired conversation with artist Ursula von Rydingsvard.
The program was taped on the occasion of The Fabric Workshop and Museum’s presentation of “Ursula von Rydingsvard: The Contour of Feeling,” an exhibition of roughly 20 von Rydingsvards mostly made since 2000. The exhibition was curated by Mark Rosenthal. The exhibition catalogue, which is not yet available, will be published by FWM and Hirmer. In addition, the Philadelphia Museum of Art is showing two von Rydingsvards through April 28, 2019, New York’s Galerie Lelong is showing an exhibition of von Rydingsvard’s work through June 23, and von Rydingsvard is included in “Studio Visit: Selected Gifts from Agnes Gund” at the Museum of Modern Art, New York through July 22.
Ursula von Rydingsvard is one of America’s leading sculptors. Since her first solo exhibition 43 years ago, she has had solo exhibitions at or fulfilled commissions for museums such as the Storm King Art Center, the Art Institute of Chicago, the North Carolina Museum of Art, the Walker Art Center and many more.
