No. 585: Matthew Ritchie

Episode No. 585 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist Matthew Ritchie.

The Frist Art Museum in Nashville is presenting “Matthew Ritchie: A Garden in the Flood,” a survey of the last 20 years of Matthew Ritchie’s career. The exhibition shows how Ritchie has brought together biology, physics, creation stories, epic poetry and history across painting, sculpture, video and installation. At the core of the exhibition is a new Ritchie video work featuring composer Hanna Benn in collaboration with the Fisk Jubilee Singers and their late music director Dr. Paul T. Kwami. The exhibition was curated by Mark Scala and is on view through March 5. An exhibition catalogue was published by DelMonico Books in association with the Frist. Amazon and Indiebound offer it for about $50.

Ritchie’s most recent institutional solo exhibitions have been at the CVAD Galleries at the University of North Texas, the Moody Center for the Arts at Rice University, and the ICA Boston.
