No. 579: Uta Barth

Episode No. 579 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist Uta Barth.

The J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles is presenting “Uta Barth: Peripheral Vision,” a retrospective of Barth’s work. For over forty years Barth has made work about the act of looking, perception, movement and the passage of time. The exhibition debuts Barth’s newest work: a project commissioned in celebration of the Getty Center’s twentieth anniversary. The exhibition was curated by Arpad Kovacs, and is on view through February 19, 2023. A catalogue is forthcoming in 2023.

A previous mid-career survey, “Uta Barth: I Between Places” was organized by the Henry Art Gallery at the University of Washington in 2000. Barth’s work is in nearly every major museum collection in North America.
