The Modern Art Notes Podcast

Episode No. 622 is a holiday clips episode that features artists Otobong Nkanga and Griselda Rosas. 

Nkanga was just awarded the 2025 Nasher Prize, for "weaving together powerful works that delve into the complex, often fragile relationships between humans, the land, and its resources, touching on issues of consumption, global circulation, connectivity, and care." 

This segment was taped in 2018 on the occasion of “Otobong Nkanga: To Dig a Hole That Collapses Again” at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. The exhibition, a survey of her work, was curated by Omar Kholeif. For images, see Episode No. 340.

Rosas' work is on view at the Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive in "Matrix 282/Griselda Rosas: Yo te cuido." The exhibition presents Rosas’ textile drawings and sculptural installations that explore themes of inheritance, colonialism, and intergenerational knowledge. The exhibition, which debuted at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego and which is on view in Berkeley through November 19, was curated by Anthony Graham with assistance from Jill Dawsey. This segment was taped in the spring when the MCASD presentation was on view. For images, see Episode No. 607.
