Episode No. 282 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features curator Diane Waggoner and curator Katy Rothkopf.
Waggoner is the curator of "East of the Mississippi: Nineteenth-Century American Landscape Photography." For several decades, the story of America's nineteenth-century photographic history has mostly run through the West. Waggoner's exhibition instead looks at how photographers looked at the region between the Mississippi River and the Atlantic Ocean. The exhibition features 175 nineteenth-century photographs, including daguerreotypes, salted paper prints, albumen prints, stereographic prints and even paintings. It's on view at the National Gallery of Art through July 16, when it will travel to the New Orleans Museum of Art.
On the second segment, Baltimore Museum of Art curator Katy Rothkopf discusses Richard Diebenkorn's 1964 visit to the Soviet Union in the context of "Matisse/Diebenkorn." The exhibition, which Rothkopf co-curated with San Francisco Museum of Modern Art curator Janet Bishop, is on view at SFMOMA through May 29. Bishop discussed "Matisse/Diebenkorn" on Episode No. 266.
