Episode No. 389 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast is a holiday clips episode featuring a previously aired conversation with artist Rachel Whiteread.
After originating at the Tate Britain and traveling to the National Gallery of Art, the 30-year-retrospective “Rachel Whiteread” is at its final stop, the Saint Louis Art Museum. Curated by Molly Donovan and Ann Gallagher, it is on view through June 9. The excellent exhibition catalogue was published by the Tate, which originated the exhibition. Amazon offers it starting at $34.
Whiteread’s work has long explored domestic spaces and objects through casting and the presentation of negative space. Her sculptures have given us new ways to look at familiar places and spaces, and nudge us toward new understandings of the familiar.
