Episode No. 508 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features curators Jodi Hauptman and Samantha Friedman; a clip from a performance by Marcus Fischer; and curator Laura Llewellyn.
Hauptman and Friedman are the curators of “Cézanne Drawing” at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. (They were assisted by Kiko Aebi.) The exhibition surveys 250 of Cezanne’s works on paper, from drawings to watercolors, and includes several key paintings as well. It is on view through September 25. The exhibition catalogue was published by MoMA. It is available from Indiebound and Amazon for $40-45.
Along with John Witty, Laura Llewellyn is the co-curator of “Paolo Veneziano
Art & Devotion in 14th-Century Venice” at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. The exhibition, the first of Paolo’s work in the United States, reunites panels that originally formed a larger ensemble but are today scattered across different collections, including the Getty’s. It is on view at the Getty through October 3. The exhibition catalogue was published by the Frick Collection in association with Paul Holberton Publishing. It is available from Indiebound and Amazon for $60.
The program also includes a clip from Marcus Fischer, one of the artists curator Rachel Adams included in “All Together, Amongst Many: Reflections on Empathy” at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts in Omaha. The clip is from Fischer’s performance at the exhibition’s opening on June 5. Fischer is an artist and musician based in Portland, Oregon. Fischer creates, collects and transforms audio into soundscapes that accompany performances and installations. He’s been an artist-in-residence at the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation’s Rauschenberg Residency, and he contributed two sound works and two performances to the 2019 Whitney Biennial.
