Episode No. 400 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features a previously aired conversation between host Tyler Green and Carrie Moyer.
Moyer is included in “Queer Abstraction” at the Des Moines Art Center, a show which looks at how LGBTQ artists have used abstraction to address sexuality and gender. The show, which was curated by Jared Ledesma, is in Iowa through September 8.
Carrie Moyer is a New York-based painter whose work has mined the history of abstract painting, particularly composition and the way artists have used different materials and techniques. Moyer’s work — and titles — often point to contemporary life and politics. Moyer frequently writes criticism for outlets such as Art in America. In 1991 she co-founded the lesbian public art project Dyke Action Machine! The Tang Museum organized a survey of Moyer’s work in 2013; she’s also had solo shows at the Worcester Art Museum, and at the Katzen Arts Center at American University in Washington, DC.
This episode was taped in May, 2018 when Moyer was featured in “Inherent Structures” at the Wexner Center for the Arts. Images are available at the page for Episode No. 343.
Air date: July 4, 2019.
