This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist Andrea Zittel.
A survey of Zittel’s work, titled “Lay of the Land,” is on view now at the Baltic Center for Contemporary Art in Gateshead, England. The show was organized by Stockholm’s Magasin 3, where it opened late last year. In 2005, the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston and the New Museum for Contemporary Art in New York organized a traveling American survey of her work.
Zittel lives and works at A-Z West outside Joshua Tree, Calif., an enterprise that encompasses “all aspects of day to day living, [in which] home furniture, clothing, food all become the sites of investigation in an ongoing endeavor to better understand human nature and the social construction of needs.” Zittel also operates High Desert Test Sites, a series of experimental art sites in the California desert.
For the show’s second segment, Katherine Ball, who lived on Zittel’s Indy Island (2010), joins me to discuss her Zittel-based residency at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
