Phyllida Barlow, most recently seen in the United States in the just-closed Carnegie International, has fulfilled a major commission for the Tate. The exhibition goes on view today and will be up through October 19. The image above is a detail from the installation, which is titled dock (2014).
Barlow was the guest for the full hour of Episode No. 109 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast. All of us here at The MAN Podcast think it’s one of our very best shows.
