48 | Haunted Art – trick or treat special

47 | Art History in Harry Potter - alchemy and the medieval

We’re turning our attention to the magical side of art history. When we think of the Harry Potter series, whether it’s the books or films, a very specific aesthetic comes to mind. J.K. Rowling’s world is full of castles, cauldrons, and cloaks. A very specific aesthetic comes to mind when we think of Hogwarts and the wizarding world. What aspects of art history does Rowling draw from and where does she deviate from tradition? My two guests this week are Larisa Grollemond, Assistant Curator of Manuscripts at the J. Paul Getty Museum, and M.E. Warlick, Professor Emeritus at the University of Denver.

46 | Posthuman art – the future is here

We’re pushing the boundaries of what it means to be human in posthuman art. When the human organism is not entirely organic anymore what do we define as human and when does it become machine? We’ll answer this along with the basics - what is the movement and where did it originate? Support the show on Patreon - https://www.patreon.com/DisturbingthePiece

44 | Isn't it Romantic...

I’m answering the age-old question: what is Romanticism? The word romantic is used to describe everything from movies to greeting cards. But what does it mean when describing art? Specifically, when using the capital “R” Romantic. Get ready for some awe and terror… Support the show on Patreon - https://www.patreon.com/DisturbingthePiece

43 | a History of Still Life

In this episode, Erin and I discuss another art history classic. If you only think of flowers and fruit when you think of still life you’ve only heard the basics. We look back to ancient still lifes, follow them through their heyday in the 17th century Europe, and then examine how they’ve evolved into modern times.

42 | Exhibit Revisit - Degenerate Art

In the summer of 1937, two art exhibits were on display in Munich, Germany. One glorified the German state while the other was created with the intention of shaming and debasing the artwork on display. The art included in the latter now has the title of modern masterpiece. However, during the 1930s it, and the infamous exhibit, were known as “Degenerate.” In this series, I’ll examine an exhibit that’s had a lasting impression on art history. Maybe it galvanized a movement or maybe it was too radical for its time. Whatever the outcome brought us to where we are today.

41 | Iconoclasm - Not Such Ancient History

When I say Iconoclasm, you may immediately start thinking of faceless sculptures and the Byzantine Empire. But what if I today you that Iconoclasm is still alive and practiced today? Erin and I give you a short history lesson behind the movement and then transition into modern examples. Support the show on Patreon - https://www.patreon.com/DisturbingthePiece

40 | Destination: Art - Marfa

Once an abandon military base in West Texas, Marfa is now a modern-day art pilgrimage site. Thanks to artist Donald Judd the Chinati Foundation unites art, buildings, and the natural environment. I visited the site and traveled to the Judd Foundation’s Spring Street location to speak to Director of Marfa Programs & Archivist, Caitlin Murray about the artist who decided to forgo the traditional route and embrace a new possibility for displaying his art.
