This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast spotlights “Italian Futurism, 1909-1944: Reconstructing the Universe” at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. It is the first overview of Italian Futurism to be presented in the United States. It’s on view through September 1.
The first guest is Guggenheim curator Vivien Greene, who organized the show. Greene’s previous exhibitions include “The Vorticists: Rebel Artists in London and New York, 1914–18,” (which she co-organized with Mark Antliff), “Utopia Matters: From Brotherhoods to Bauhaus” and “Divisionism/Neo-Impressionism: Arcadia and Anarchy.”
On the second segment, Blanton Museum of Art curator Veronica Roberts details her new exhibition “Converging Lines: Eva Hesse and Sol LeWitt,” which examines the two artists’ friendship and the ways in which they informed each other’s work. The exhibition is accompanied by an excellent catalogue co-published by the Blanton and Yale University Press. It reproduces not only numerous works by the two artists, but marvelous examples of their correspondence. It’s available from Amazon for just $25.The exhibition is on view through May 18.
