Episode No. 553 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist Hayv Kahraman and conservator and author Susan Lake.
Hayv Kahraman is included in “Women Painting Women” at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. The exhibition features 46 female artists who choose women as subject matter in their works. It was curated by Andrea Karnes and is on view through September 25. The exhibition catalogue was published by Delmonico Books. Indiebound and Amazon offer it for $39-50.
Kahraman is a Baghdad-born, Los Angeles-based painter whose work explores the non-fixity of diasporic culture. Her work has been featured in solo exhibitions at the Contemporary Art Museum Saint Louis, the Joslyn Museum of Art, Omaha and the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco.
On the second segment, Lake discusses “Clyfford Still,” a new book in the Getty Conservation Institute’s “The Artists Materials” series. Lake co-authored the book with Barbara A. Ramsay. Built from unprecedented access to art in the Clyfford Still estate and later in the Clyfford Still Museum, Denver, the book offers a detailed account of Still’s materials, working methods and techniques. Indiebound and Amazon offer it for $40.
