Episode No. 522 features artist Aliza Nisenbaum and curator Davide Gasparotto.

Aliza Nisenbaum's work is on view at the Cleveland Museum of Art in "Picturing Motherhood Now," a look at how contemporary artists represent motherhood. Curated by Emily Liebert, it is on view through March 13, 2022.

The Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas City is showing "Aliza Nisenbaum: AquĆ­ Se Puede (Here You Can)," an exhibition of large-scale portraits of individuals connected to Kansas City salsa music and dance communities. It was curated by Erin Dziedzic and is up through July 31, 2022.

Tate Liverpool and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts are among the museums that have presented solo exhibitions of Nisenbaum's work.

Gasparotto discusses the J. Paul Getty Museum's acquisition of Jacopo Bassano's 1554 The Miracle of the Quails. The picture goes on view at the Getty today.

The nearly eight-foot-wide painting is a rare depiction of the Old Testament detailing of the miracle of the quails. Bassano based his visual account from a single line in the Bible's story.
