No. 413: Tiffany Chung, Houston’s new Delacroix

Episode No. 413 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist Tiffany Chung and art historian and museum director Gary Tinterow.

Chung is currently featured in “Unquiet Harmony: The Subject of Displacement” at the Sheldon Museum of Art at the University of Nebraska. The exhibition spotlights how painter Carlos Alfonzo, the collective SUPERFLEX and Chung have examined issues surrounding migration. It’s on view in Lincoln through December 31. This episode was taped before a live audience at the Sheldon on September 25.

New York’s Tyler Rollins Fine Art is offering a solo show of Chung’s work titled “passage of time.” It’s up through November 2.

Earlier this year the Smithsonian American Art Museum presented “Tiffany Chung: Vietnam, Past is Prologue,” a solo show that explored the legacies of the Vietnam War, including on Chung’s own family. In recent years she has exhibited in the Sydney, Gwangju and Venice biennials, and in exhibitions at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and SFMOMA.

On the second segment, MFAH director and art historian Gary Tinterow discusses Eugène Delacroix’s Women of Algiers in Their Apartment (1833-34), which appears to be the first version of Delacroix’s great Femmes d’Alger (1834) at the Louvre. The museum announced the acquisition last week; it’s already on view.

Air date: October 3, 2019.
