Double Vision Lecture Series: Nene Humphrey

6 Minutes 27 seconds

Seeking to ground herself and get back in to the studio after a great loss, Brooklyn-based artist Nene Humphrey found Victorian mourning braiding the same way most Americans do when looking for help: Google. The pattern similarities to her previous work – drawings from neuroscience lab slides – were uncanny and surprising. Humphrey expands on her journey with Kemper Museum Curator and Head of Adult Programs, Erin Dziedzic, discussing her 5 year exploration, collaboration, and the future of her work, Circling the Center.

  Artist Talk: Hope Gangloff and Susan Inglett
6 Minutes 51 seconds

In this interview, Kemper Museum Curator and Head of Adult Programs, Erin Dziedzic, talks to Dressed Up exhibition artist Hope Gangloff and Susan Inglett, owner of Susan Inglett Gallery. Together they discuss their practices, points of intersection, and the relationship as artist and gallerist.

Not very often does an outside observer get a glimpse into the relationship of an artist and the person who represents them. Inglett first met Gangloff in 2007 and from that point forward it has been a perfect left brain-right brain match according to Inglett.

Recently, Gangloff produced a series of paintings of her friends and people she is most familiar with. The Kemper Museum was fortunate enough to purchase one of those paintings, Vera, now on view in Dressed Up.

Glass Represents Life For Artist Beth Lipman

6 Minutes 27 seconds

To Wisconsin-based multi-media artist Beth Lipman, glass represents life – there is a beginning and an end, there is change, it is fragile, it is precious. For over a decade glass has been the material of choice for Lipman who is considered one of the most compelling conceptual artists working in glass today. Recently Beth Lipman sat down with the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art's Erin Dziedzic, curator and head of adult programs, to discuss two of her works on view in the atrium of the Museum. Pocket Watch, Book, Skull and Candles (2011) and Still Life with Kudzu (2010) are on view in the atrium at the Kemper Museum.

Laura McPhee: River of No Return

5 Minutes 57 seconds

In her large-scale photographs—each measuring six by eight feet—Laura McPhee says "you feel the past and the present in one place." The exhibition's theme is a look at the landscape and culture of the American West with a special focus on the Sawtooth Valley in central Idaho, a desolate part of the United States. Along with capturing the area's beauty and its permanent and migrant residents, McPhee's images raise issues about the impact of humans on the land and the tensions among ranchers, hunters, environmentalists, and recreationists. Her lush images—made with a large-format camera and printed using traditional photographic methods—envelope and engage viewers in their sheer scale and warmth.
