On the second segment of this week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast, artist Robyn O’Neil discusses her These Final Hours Embrace At Last; This Is Our Ending, This Is Our Past (2007), a seven-foot-tall, 14-foot-wide graphite drawing. The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth announced its acquisition of the piece last week. O’Neil talks about the origins of the piece, why she made it out of graphite, and how this classic Winslow Homer painting motivated the work. (The O’Neil segment starts at about the 51-minute mark.)
The first segment 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.
