Episode No. 607 features curator C.D. Dickerson III and artist Griselda Rosas.

With Emerson Bowyer, Dickerson is the co-curator of "Canova: Sketching in Clay." The exhibition features more than 30 of the 60 surviving sketch models Antonio Canova made in clay, handsy works which helped him plan his designs for his large sculptures. In addition to clay models, the exhibition also includes a number of plaster works and final marbles, such as Canova's iconic, influential 1805/07 portrait of Letizia Bonaparte, often known as Madame Mère. "Canova" is at the National Gallery of Art through October 9. The excellent catalogue was published by the NGA. Amazon and Bookshop offer it for $60-65.

The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego is presenting "Griselda Rosas: Yo te cuido" an exhibition of Rosas' textile drawings and sculptural installations that explore themes of inheritance, colonialism, and intergenerational knowledge. The exhibition, which was curated by Anthony Graham with assistance from Jill Dawsey, is on view through August 13.
