The Modern Art Notes Podcast

Episode No. 317 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features curators Carmen Bambach and Alexandra Munroe.

Bambach is the curator of "Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman and Designer" at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The exhibition, which features 133 drawings, three sculptures, a painting and a wood architectural model, all by Michelangelo, and contextualizing contemporary works by his teachers, peers and pupils, is on view through February 12, 2018. The lavish, extensive exhibition catalogue was published by the Met and is distributed by Yale University Press. Amazon offers it for $58.

Bambach is a curator at the Met. Her previous exhibitions include a 2010 survey of Bronzino's drawings, a 2003 exhibition of Leondardo da Vinci's drawings, and a 2001 show spotlighting the draftsmanship of Correggio and Parmigianino.

On the second segment, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum curator Alexandra Munroe discusses "Art and China After 1989: Theater of the World." The exhibition, which presents work made in or about China by 71 artists and groups between 1989 and the 2008 Beijing Olympics, is at the Guggenheim through January 7, 2018. Munroe co-curated the exhibition with Philip Tinari and Hon Hanru.
