This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features a rare interview with artist Doug Wheeler, one of the pioneers of light-and-space art. A major Wheeler ‘infinity environment’ installation is on view through this weekend at Chelsea’s David Zwirner gallery, where visitors have routinely waited in line for an hour or longer to see the piece.
Also, a major Wheeler was recently acquired by the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, which featured Wheeler prominently in its light-and-space survey “Phenomenal.” The museum’s new Wheeler, above, will be on view in downtown San Diego until August.
In the show’s second segment, Helen A. Harrison, the director of the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center joins me to talk about a new exhibition she’s curated for the Archives of American Art in Washington. Titled “Memories Arrested in Space,” the show comes from the AAA’s collection and celebrates the 100th anniversary of Pollock’s birth.
