This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features artists Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller. The Canadian duo’s The Murder of Crows (2008) will receive its U.S. debut at New York’s Park Avenue Armory on August 3 and will remain on view through September 9. Cardiff and Bures Miller are also showing two new pieces at Documenta, in Kassel, Germany through September 16.
The Paradise Institute (2001, pictured above, must-see video/audio of the piece here) is one of the pieces we discuss on this week’s show, particularly when Cardiff and Miller and I discuss their interest in the audio version of trompe l’oeil. (Trompe l’oreille?)
