Modern Art Notes Podcast

MODERN ART NOTES PODCAST By Tyler Green


The Spelman College Museum of Art is showing "Deborah Roberts: The Evolution of Mimi" through May 19. The exhibition features work Roberts has made in the last half-decade, work that uses collage and girlhood to examine issues of race, gender, and America's present condition. It was curated by Andrea Barnwell. San Francisco's Jenkins Johnson Gallery just opened an exhibition of Roberts' work called "Uninterrupted." It's on view through March 17.

Deborah Roberts was recently included in the group exhibition "Fictions" at the Studio Museum in Harlem. Her work is in the collections of the Studio Museum, the Blanton at the University of Texas, and the Block Museum of Art at Northwestern University.

The Spelman College Museum has uploaded a conversation between Barnwell and Roberts. Part one is here

The Modern Art Notes Podcast is a weekly, hour-long interview program featuring artists, historians, authors, curators and conservators. While the program is typically studio-based, it has taped live-audience episodes at nearly a dozen American art museums, such as the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Baltimore Museum of Art and the Nasher Sculpture Center.

It’s funny how one part of my life has come full circle since my studio visit with the Studio Museum in Harlem. In 2006 I travelled to SMH to speak with Lowery Stokes Sims, then their executive director, and left with the feeling that much more work and scholarship needed to be done.  I met with SMH’s newest associate curator Connie Choi and assistant curator Hallie Ringle and felt good about it. Of course there is always work to do, but I feel much closer. Twins (2017) is now part of their permanent collection! Thelma Golden before Twins Nobody’s Darling: Women and Representation at UT Austin’s Christian-Green gallery continues over the course of this summer and concludes on August 4, 2017. As I’ve said, I’m thrilled to have support in Austin and am as happy to see varying interest across the US. I will participate in the 2017 Art on the Vine atMart…
