    BonusEp 0.5 - Tamar Avishai interviews Dr. Rachel Saunders, Harvard Art Museums

    BonusEp 0.5 - Tamar Avishai interviews Dr. Rachel Saunders, Harvard Art Museums

    Like so many of us, Dr. Rachel Saunders had a tough 2020. As the curator of Asian art at the Harvard Art Museums, she was thrilled to co-curate, with professor Yukio Lippit, the exhibition "Painting Edo: Japanese Art from the Feinberg Collection," the largest single exhibition the museum had ever mounted. And then, a month after its opening, it was shuttered by Covid, and remained closed until the entire exhibition came down early last month.

    But what could have been a bitter disappointment actually became exceptionally educational - perhaps par for the course at a prestigious university art museum, but with far-reaching implications for museums everywhere. Because when we talk about accessibility - and inaccessibility - in this context, we start to think about it in every context. How accessible are museums, ever? How authentically cross-cultural are our conversations? How do art historians wrestle with and decide on narratives? And how do we honor the multiplicity of these objects' histories while still making them present, today?

    I sat down with Dr. Saunders this past May, the last month that the exhibition was still up on the gallery walls but still behind locked doors, and we dove into these issues and more.

    LookWithYourEarsEp. 0.3: The Urban Sublime

    LookWithYourEarsEp. 0.3: The Urban Sublime

    The Lonely Palette is collaborating with the Addison Gallery of American Art in celebration of the museum's 90th anniversary! In this episode, we're using the Addison's collection to explore the American city in the same way that art history has been looking at landscape since time immemorial: what it represents, what stories it tells us about ourselves, what stories it leaves out, what it replaces, and how its relationship to the human figure is as fraught and dramatic as any relationship you'll ever find on a canvas.

    Artists Explored:
    Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper, Robert Frank, Berenice Abbott, Charles Sheeler, Martin Wong

    Ep. 53 - Painting Edo, Post-Pandemic

    Ep. 53 - Painting Edo, Post-Pandemic

    The world is reopening just as Harvard's special exhibition "Painting Edo: Japanese Art from the Feinberg Collection" is permanently closing, having been open to the public for one heartbreakingly short month. But the exhibition, which documented the Edo period in all its diverse, aesthetic richness, doesn't have to be in front of you to describe its uncannily Buddhist and modernist moment, or to share in the strange lightness of ours.

    This episode was produced with support from Harvard Art Museums.

    LookWithYourEarsEp. 0.2: The Figure

    LookWithYourEarsEp. 0.2: The Figure

    The Lonely Palette is collaborating with the Addison Gallery of American Art in celebration of the museum's 90th anniversary! In this episode, we're using the Addison's collection to explore the figure, which, in art history, is almost exclusively the object of the gaze. But what does it mean when the body – that is, the multi-dimensional person who inhabits it – steps behind the lens as well to take back control?

    Artists Explored:
    Lalla Essaydi, Laurie Simmons, Cindy Sherman, Lorna Simpson, Sally Mann, Dawoud Bey

    LookWithYourEarsEp. 0.1: Abstraction

    The Lonely Palette is collaborating with the Addison Gallery of American Art in celebration of the museum's 90th anniversary! In this episode, we're using the Addison's collection to explore abstraction, i.e. the one guaranteed way to alienate your visitor. Or...maybe not? Maybe, when it comes to art without a fixed meaning, our presence is requested, and even required?

    Artists Explored:
    Agnes Martin, Jackson Pollock, Mark Bradford, Jasper Johns, Donald Judd

    Music Used:
    The Blue Dot Sessions, “The Zeppelin,” “Pinky,” “Flattered,” “A Little Powder,” “Arizona Moon,” “Daymaze,” “The Summit,”
    Jason Leonard, “Ritual Six”
