No. 490: Juan Gris, David Driskell

Episode No. 490 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features curators Nicole R. Myers and Julie McGee.

With Katherine Rothkopf, Nicole R. Myers is the co-curator of “Cubism in Color: The Still Lifes of Juan Gris” at the Dallas Museum of Art. Across more than 40 paintings, the exhibition explores how Gris brought color to cubism in still-life painting of striking vivacity. It is on view in Dallas through July 25 before traveling to the Baltimore Museum of Art. The outstanding exhibition catalogue was published by the two museums and distributed by Yale University Press. It’s available for about $45 from Indiebound and Amazon.

On the second segment, Julie McGee discusses “David Driskell: Icons of Nature and History” at the High Museum of Art. The exhibition is on view through May 9. From Atlanta the exhibition will travel to the Portland (Me.) Museum of Art, the Phillips Collection in Washington, and to the Cincinnati Art Museum. The exhibition catalogue was edited by Jessica May and published by Rizzoli Electa. It’s available for $40-50 from Indiebound and Amazon.
