Episode No. 95 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features clips from previous segments with Sophie Calle and Wangechi Mutu.
Sophie Calle came on the program last November, when she was included in the exhibition “The Progress of Love,” a three-venue collaboration between the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts in St. Louis, the Menil Collection in Houston and the Centre for Contemporary Art in Lagos, Nigeria. In addition, Siglio Press had just published Calle’s “The Address Book,” the first time the book has been published in its entirety in English. The artwork dates back to 1983 when it was published in Paris’ Liberation newspaper and consists of Calle’s documenting her experiences contacting the people in a lost address book she found on a Parisian street. Amazon offers the book for $20, a $10 discount.
This fall the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum will present “Sophie Calle: Last Seen,” an exhibition which will in part address the infamous 1990 theft of art from the ISGM.
Wangechi Mutu was on the show back in April, when the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University opened “Wangechi Mutu: A Fantastic Journey,” the first mid-career survey of Mutu’s work. Curated by the Nasher’s Trevor Schoonmaker, it opens at the Brooklyn Museum on October 11.
