This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features painter Lari Pittman. One of Pittman’s most important paintings, The Veneer of Order (1985) is featured in the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago exhibition “This Will Have Been: Art, Love & Politics in the 1980s.” The thesis of the exhibition, which was curated by Helen Molesworth, is that the political, often confrontational art of the 1980s had its roots in feminist art of the preceding decade. 

On the second segment of this week’s show, Crown Point Press founder Kathan Brown joins me to talk about Richard Diebenkorn’s printmaking practice. Many of Diebenkorn’s Crown Point-published prints are on view in “Richard Diebenkorn: The Ocean Park Series,” which is on view now at the Orange County Museum of Art. I reviewed the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth’s presentation of the exhibition here.
