Episode No. 47 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist Carrie Mae Weems and journalist Aimee Levitt.
A new retrospective exhibition of Weems’ work titled, “Carrie Mae Weems: Three Decades of Photography and Video,” opened last week at Nashville’s Frist Center for the Visual Arts. Curated by Kathryn Delmez, it will travel to Weems’s hometown Portland Art Museum, to the Cleveland Museum of Art, to the Cantor Center at Stanford and to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. The catalogue, published by Yale University Press and including contributions from Delmez, Rob Storr, Deborah Willis and Franklin Sirmans, is full of good reads.
On the second segment, Aimee Levitt, a staff writer at the Riverfront Times, an alt-weekly in St. Louis, talks about this fantastic story about outsider artist Edward Deeds and how he and his work have been re-discovered. Click here for the RFT’s terrific gallery of dozens of Deedses.
Air date: Sept. 27. 2012.
