No. 573: Matthew Ronay, Jade Doskow

Episode No. 573 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artists Matthew Ronay and Jade Doskow.

The Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas is presenting “Matthew Ronay: The Crack, the Swell, an Earth, an Ode” through January 15, 2023. The exhibition features a nearly 24-foot-long sculpture that functions as both an introduction to Ronay’s exploration of surrealism, abstraction, representation and art’s history, and also as a summary of the last decade of his work. The exhibition was curated by Leigh Arnold and is accompanied by a catalogue published by the Nasher and Gregory R. Miller & Co. Indiebound and Amazon offer it for about $55.

Ronay’s work has been featured in solo shows at the Blaffer Art Gallery and at the Pérez Art Museum Miami. He has been included in group shows at the Dallas Museum of Art, the North Carolina Museum of Art, the Williams College Museum of Art, and more.

The John Hartell Gallery at the Cornell University College of Architecture, Art, and Planning is presenting “A New Wilderness: Freshkills.” The exhibition features photographs by Freshkills photographer-in-residence Jade Doskow and a series of soundscapes by Heather Campanelli. The work shows the evolution of Staten Island’s Freshkills from a landfill — the world’s largest household garbage dump — into a 2,200-acre city park. The exhibition is on view through November 4.

Doskow’s Freshkills work debuted in The New York Times. Black Dog London published a monograph of Doskow’s “Lost Utopias” work in 2016.
