Episode No. 525 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast is a holiday clips episode that features curator Shawnya L. Harris.
Harris is the curator of “Emma Amos: Color Odyssey,” a retrospective of Amos’s career at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It is on view through January 17, 2022.
Amos was important in bringing second-wave feminism into American art, in addressing many American and art histories within her work, and in making work that synthesized her interest in printmaking, weaving and painting.
The show’s outstanding catalogue, which features essays by Lisa Farrington, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Laurel Garber, Kay Walkingstick, and Phoebe Wolfskill, was published by the Georgia Museum of Art. It’s available from Indiebound and Amazon for about $40.
Air date: November 25, 2021.
