Episode No. 500 features artists Nancy Grossman and Stacy Lynn Waddell.
Grossman is featured in "Nasher Mixtape," a series of micro-exhibitions at the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas through September 26; and in "Vibrant: Artists Engage with Color" at the Weatherspoon Art Museum at the University of North Carolina, Greensboro through June 26.
Grossman's leather-wrapped wooden sculptures are among the most iconic works of twentieth-century art, but are far from her only engagements with the figure. Grossman started her career by painting the female figure, went on to collages built from leather and other found material, to dyed-paper collages of the human figure and more. The Tang Museum at Skidmore College presented a retrospective of her work in 2012.
Waddell is included in three ongoing museum exhibitions, including:
- "Graphic Pull: Contemporary Prints from the Collection" at the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University through June 6. The exhibition is open to to the Duke community only; a thorough virtual tour is available here.
- "Silent Streets: Art in the Time of the Pandemic" at the Mint Museum Uptown in Charlotte. A closing date has not yet been determined; and
- "Taking Space: Contemporary Women Artists and the Politics of Scale" at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia through September 5.
Waddell's work examines both real and imagined histories, often with materials and processes that themselves reference the past.
