Anne Appleby

In conversation with Anne Appleby for the Modern Art Notes Podcast:

The Podcast features Elizabeth Easton, the curator of “Snapshot: Painters and Photography: Bonnard to Vuillard.” The exhibition, organized by the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Phillips Collection, and the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, is on view at the Phillips through May 6. The Yale University Press-published catalogue is top-notch.

The exhibition spotlights six artists – Pierre Bonnard, Edouard Vuillard, Maurice Denis, Henri Evenepoel, Henri Riviere and George Hendrik  Breitner – and examines how their use of the hand-held Kodak camera, which was introduced in 1888, informed their work. Even more interesting: The exhibitions shows how their painting informed the pictures they took.

7:30 p.m. Films of Nathaniel Dorsky: Recent Films
Nathaniel Dorsky (U.S., 2010–12). Nathaniel Dorsky and critic/curator Mark McElhatten in conversation.

Sunday, June 17, 2023
7:30 p.m. Films of Nathaniel Dorsky: The Quartet
Nathaniel Dorsky (U.S., 2008–10). Nathaniel Dorsky in person. Dorsky’s imagery is of the everyday world, both city life and nature. Yet his shots are often mysterious and ambiguous, equally “about” what he sees as how he sees it. Tonight’s screening features the quartet Sarabande, Compline, Aubade, and Winter. (67 mins)

Sunday, June 24, 2023
7:30 p.m. Films of Nathaniel Dorsky: Devotional Songs
Nathaniel Dorsky (U.S., 2002–06). Nathaniel Dorsky in person. Dorsky’s films continually reawaken us to the poetry of visuals, as can be seen in Song and Solitude, Threnody, and The Visitation. (64 mins)
