The Modern Art Notes Podcast

Episode No. 569 features curator Stephanie Weissberg and artist Rosamond Purcell.

Weissberg is the curator of "Barbara Chase-Riboud Monumentale: The Bronzes," the artist's first retrospective in 40 years and the largest exhibition of her work to date. In addition to sculptures, such as from Chase-Riboud's "Malcolm X," "Zanzibar," and "La Musica" series, the exhibition includes nearly two dozen works on paper and a selection of Chase-Riboud’s poetry. "Chase-Riboud Monumentale" is on view through February 5, 2023. A catalogue will be available in January 2023.

Purcell discusses her work on the occasion of "Rosamond Purcell: Nature Stands Aside" at the Addison Gallery of American Art at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts. The retrospective exhibition examines how Purcell has collaborated with paleontologists, anthropologists, historians, curators, and more in exploration of the shifting lines between art and science. The exhibition was curated by Gordon Wilkins and is on view through December 31. The museum has published an excellent catalogue in collaboration with Rizzoli Electa. Amazon and Indiebound offer it for $45-65.
