    Episode 99: Kathryn Hart: What Pulses Beneath the Skin

    Episode 99: Kathryn Hart: What Pulses Beneath the Skin

    In my celebration and conversation with contemporary artist Kathryn Hart, you will experience her sculptures, room sized installations and photography very collaboratively. Meaning you, the viewer or spectator, look and see the works from multiple angles. You walk around them to see all the sides and layers that allow a space for you to insert your own experiences; a very interactive looking experience that expands beyond the work's physicality.

    Episode 98: Video Art: Consuming Female Imagery

    Episode 98: Video Art: Consuming Female Imagery

    The medium video art gives artists the freedom to create works outside the gallery or museum space, opening avenues to record, document their performances and to be own producers and distributors. For female artists, incorporating video art into their performance works becomes a means of self-expression and the exploration of female imagery.

    Episode 97: Chiharu Shiota: Drawing in Space

    Episode 97: Chiharu Shiota: Drawing in Space

    Using place as her canvas, Japanese contemporary artist Chiharu Shiota creates a new visual plane in her monumental installations. She suspends networks of media, from used everyday objects to her signature red and black threads strung across entire spaces, tying individual narratives together. It is as if she is painting in midair. Come, journey with me into her universes of bellowing and dripping colors and lines.

    Episode 94: Meg Hitchcock: "Visual Mantras of Devotion"

    Episode 94: Meg Hitchcock: "Visual Mantras of Devotion"

    There is a fascinating link between women artists who get their voices across through the use of text within art. Words become an image. Contemporary female artist Meg Hitchcock "examines and dissects the word of God, deconstructing a sacred text by cutting its individual letters, and reassembling them to form a passage from another holy book." Her text drawings give voice to her personal journey as a spiritual seeker.
