This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist Martha Rosler. An exhibition of Rosler’s pictures of Cuba, taken in January, 1981, are on view now at Mitchell-Innes & Nash in Chelsea. Rosler and I talked last week in front of a live audience at the Baltimore Museum of Art.
Rosler has been the subject of dozens of major exhibitions, including the 1999 retrospectinve “Martha Rosler: Positions in the Life World,” which was organized by Ikon Gallery in Birmingham and Generali Foundation, Vienna. That show traveled throughout Europe and to the New Museum and the International Center of Photography in New York. She will receive her first solo show at the Museum of Modern Art this fall when her Meta-Monumental Garage Sale takes over MoMA’s atrium for 13 days at the end of November.
Rosler and I discuss:
- The roots of her interests in politics and activism;
- Her memories of attending the 1963 March on Washington;
- How she came to montage;
- How she distributed (and distributes) her work; and
- Her first garage sale — and her soon-to-be newest iteration, upcoming at MoMA.
