So this should be fun: The Modern Art Notes Podcast is on its way to Getty Center!
To celebrate the Getty Publications release of "Chatting with Henri Matisse: The Lost 1941 Interview," The MAN Podcast will be holding a live-audience taping with “Chatting with Matisse” editor Serge Guilbaut at the Getty at 3 pm on November 17. Admission is free, but you may guarantee your seat now by making a reservation here.
"Chatting with Matisse" is a fascinating book: In 1941 art historian Pierre Courthion conducted an extensive interview with Matisse that was seen at the time as a vital assessment of his career. But just weeks before the book was to come out, Matisse suppressed its publication. Scholars have known about the interview for some time, but it’s never been published, or even widely available, until now. The Getty book includes essays by Guilbaut, Yve-Alain Bois and Laurence Bertrand Dorleac.
Guilbaut is professor emeritus at The University of British Columbia. His previous projects include the book “How New York Stole the Idea of Modern Art: Abstract Expressionism, Freedom, and the Cold War.”
The Modern Art Notes Podcast featuring Guilbaut and host Tyler Green at the Getty will air four days after taping, on Nov. 21.
