The Modern Art Notes Podcast (visual art)

The Easter-weekend Episode No. 284 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features a previously-aired conversation with curator George Shackelford.

Shackelford is the curator of "Monet: The Early Years" at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco. The show features about 60 paintings from the first phase of Claude Monet's career, from a painting Monet made in Normandy in 1858 when he was 18 years old, until 1872, when Monet lived in Argenteuil, along the Seine near Paris. The exhibition debuted last winter at the Kimbell Art Museum, where Shackelford is the museum's deputy director. "Monet" is on view in San Francisco through May 29. The show's beautiful catalogue was published by the Kimbell and distributed by Yale University Press.

Rosen's text-based works, presented as wall-drawings, paintings and works on paper, use language, words, humor and two-dimensional forms to explore ideas, histories and contemporary life. Rosen's work is in the collection . Her museum exhibitions and installations have included projects at the Aspen (Colo.) Art Museum, the University Art Museum at the University of California, Santa Barbara, The Drawing Center, New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles and the Otis College of Art and Design, the MIT List Visual Arts Center, the MCA Chicago and more.
