Description

Ruth Fine, curator of special projects in modern art, National Gallery of Art. In this podcast recorded on June 22, 2008, for the Martin Puryear retrospective exhibition opening at the National Gallery of Art, curator Ruth Fine discusses the work of District of Columbia native Martin Puryear. The retrospective included 46 sculptures made between 1975 and 2007. The first exhibition in the Gallery’s history to be installed in both the East and West Buildings, it provided a unique opportunity to view Puryear’s sculpture in modern and classical settings. Fine discusses the installation process for Puryear’s work at the Gallery, designed in collaboration with the artist, as well as the intentions behind the placement of sculptures.
