Episode No. 517 features author Tyler Green with curator and art historian Elizabeth Kornhauser; and artist Lisa Corinne Davis.
Tyler Green is the author of “Emerson’s Nature and the Artists,” which features a new appraisal of Ralph Waldo Emerson’s classic text, new research that reveals how it was informed by Emerson’s engagement with American art, and critical analysis of how the ideas Emerson offered in “Nature” informed American art for 100 years after it was published.
Green is (usually) the producer/host of The Modern Art Notes Podcast.
Green is interviewed by Elizabeth Kornhauser, a curator in the American Wing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Along with Tim Barringer, Kornhauser curated “Thomas Cole’s Journey: Atlantic Crossings” at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and London’s National Gallery, which helped motivate his new book. Kornhauser’s “Jules Tavernier and the Elem Pomo,” which she co-curated with Shannon Vittoria, is on view now at the Met. She discussed it on Episode No. 515 of The MAN Podcast.
On the second segment, Lisa Corinne Davis discusses her work on the occasion of “Point of Departure: Abstraction 1958–Present” at the Sheldon Museum of Art at the University of Nebraska. The exhibition, drawn primarily from the museum’s collection, surveys two-dimensional abstraction and is on view through December 23. Davis’ work is in the collection of museums such as the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. Among her many awards are a National Endowment for the Arts Visual Artist Fellowship and a Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation award.
