Show Notes

Today on the show we have Apsara DiQuinzio, the Senior Curator of Contemporary Art at the Nevada Museum of Art, to discuss an amazing current exhibition about the artist Adaline Kent. Here’s the press release about this amazing exhibition: The Nevada Museum of Art will host the first retrospective exhibition of one of mid-century America’s most innovative and underrecognized artists to occur in nearly sixty years in Adaline Kent: The Click of Authenticity. The exhibition features approximately 120 works that span Kent’s entire career, and will be on display at the Museum from January 28, 2023 – September 10, 2023. The exhibition will occupy the entire second floor, charting major thematic developments in the artist’s work, which progressed from figuration to abstraction. Encompassing a diverse range of media, the exhibition includes drawings, original pictures incised on Hydrocal (a plaster mixture), sculptures both large and small, and a collection of terracottas — many of which have not been seen by the public in over half a century.
Our conversation will give you a broad overview of Kent’s biography, features and themes of her art, and how she speaks to our time.
