The Modern Art Notes Podcast

This week's Modern Art Notes Podcast features Terry Winters, who is showing collages and eleven new paintings at New York's Matthew Marks Gallery. The exhibition is on view through April 14. Winters was the subject of a Lisa Phillips-curated mid-career survey at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1992, and in 2001 Nan Rosenthal organized a survey of his prints for the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

In the show's second segment, I talk with Isabelle Dervaux, the curator of modern and contemporary drawings at New York's Morgan Library. Dervaux's new show is a survey of Dan Flavin's drawings. It's on view through July 1.

This week's Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist Doug Wheeler, one of the pioneers of light-and-space art. A major Wheeler 'infinity environment' installation is on view now at Chelsea's David Zwirner Gallery. Also, a major Wheeler was just acquired by the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, which featured Wheeler prominently in its light-and-space survey "Phenomenal." 

In the show's second segment, Helen A. Harrison, the director of the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center joins me to talk about a new exhibition she's curated for the Archives of American Art in Washington. Titled "Memories Arrested in Space," the show comes from the AAA's collection and celebrates the 100th anniversary of Pollock's birth.
