No. 528: Mitch Epstein, Milton Avery

Episode No. 528 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist Mitch Epstein and curator Edith Devaney.

Steidl has just published Epstein’s newest book “Property Rights.” Featuring 197 pictures across 288 pages, “Property Rights” examines the relationship between the United States, land and the impact of the American nation on the people who live here. The book was edited by Susan Bell and includes texts by both Epstein and Bell. Indiebound and Amazon offer it for about $75.

Epstein has published 15 books including “In India,” “American Power,” and “Family Business.”

Devaney discusses “Milton Avery,” a survey of the artist’s career at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. The exhibition features about 70 paintings Avery made between the 1910s and the mid-1960s and emphasizes Avery’s interest in color. It’s on view at MAMFW through January 30. “Avery” was co-organized by the Royal Academy, London, the Wadsworth Atheneum and MAMFW. Its catalogue was published by the Royal Academy. Indiebound and Amazon offer it for about $45.
