The Modern Art Notes Podcast

Episode No. 608 is a holiday clips episode featuring artist Ebony G. Patterson.

The New York Botanical Garden is presenting "…things come to thrive…in the shedding…in the molting…," a site-specific exhibition that immerses Patterson's work in the NYBG's spaces. It is on view in the Bronx through October 22.

This episode was taped in 2020 on the occasion of “Ebony G. Patterson… while the dew is still on the roses…”, a survey of work Patterson had made in the previous decade that was on view at the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University.

Patterson’s installations, tapestries, videos and sculptures wield beauty to address disenfranchised communities, violence, masculinity and the impacts of colonialism. “… while the dew” especially examines her consideration of gardens. Patterson’s work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Savannah College of Art and Design Museum of Art, The Studio Museum in Harlem, the Bermuda National Gallery, and more.
