Episode No. 536 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features author Barbara Bloemink and artist Jill Magid.
Bloemink is the author of “Florine Stettheimer: A Biography,” which was recently published by Hirmer Verlag. “Stettheimer” offers the early American modernist as a voracious consumer of European modernism, a networker who built impactful relationships with the New York avant garde, and as a major painter. Indiebound and Amazon offer it for $30-42.
Magid’s work is on view at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth as part of the museum’s “Focus” series. The exhibition features work in which Magid juxtaposes the COVID pandemic with the nation’s often economically motivated response to it. To date, nearly one million Americans have been confirmed as dying from COVID, provisional counts based on statistical modeling are significantly higher. The exhibition, which was curated by Alison Hearst, will be on view through March 20.
Magid’s work typically examines systems through conceptual strategies that allow her to investigate those systems from within.
