Art This Week-Between Action and the Unknown: The Art of Kazuo Shiraga and Sadamasa Motonaga

At the Dallas Museum of Art
Between Action and the Unknown: The Art of Kazuo Shiraga and Sadamasa Motonaga
Gabriel Ritter Interview
Episode 237-March 31, 2015


This week, we visit the Dallas Museum of Art and speak with curator Gabriel Ritter, about the exhibition Between Action and the Unknown: The Art of Kazuo Shiraga and Sadamasa Motonaga on view at the museum through July 19, 2015.
On the cutting room floor: One scene that was cut for time purposes featured Gabriel talking about the artistic paths Motonaga and Shiraga took in the years after the death of the Gutai movements founder, Jiro Yoshihara:
“I think with both of the artists you can really argue that into the 60s and into the 70s they were really trying to experiment more and define themselves, not necessarily within the umbrella of Gutai but the growing pains, how to figure out who Shiraga was…who Motonaga was…what defined them as individuals. For Shiraga, it was the pursuit of Buddhism, for Motonaga it becomes a transition to a more hard edge shape cartoon-y [style] that harkens back to his early work with illustration.”

Art This Week-Witness: Art and Civil Rights in the Sixties

At the Blanton Museum of Art
Witness: Art and Civil Rights in the Sixties
Evan Garza Interview
Episode 235-March 24, 2015


This week, we visit the Blanton Museum of Art and speak with Assistant Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Evan Garza, about the exhibition Witness: Art and Civil Rights in the Sixties on view at the museum through May 10, 2015.
In order to tell the story of Witness: Art and Civil Rights in the Sixties, our video focuses on several of the artworks in the exhibition. Evan spoke about the scope of the exhibition and its importance for those artists included saying it makes “the argument that the Art that was being produced from that period was not only political but also belongs in a larger narrative about art history. So many of the artists in the exhibition have really been overlooked by the predominately white art historical canon of the last several decades and really makes the argument for the importance of African-American artists who were making work during this time.” We want to thank Evan for speaking with us about this important exhibition.
