Lila Snow has a new episode of the Art Scene tonight at 9pm. Featuring artists, writers, and more. Including Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, Naomi Savage, Betye Saar, Ntozake Shange, Louise Nevelson, Mark Rothko, George Orwell, Leonardo da Vinci, and Jared Diamond.
Lila first takes us to The Hirshhorn in Washington, DC where 50 major historical artworks by Marcel Duchamp was donated by collectors Barbara and Aaron Levine. On view April 18, 2020–Oct. 12, 2020 this exhibit examines Duchamp’s extraordinary legacy and explore the lasting impact through the lens of the Hirshhorn’s permanent collection, including significant works by a diverse roster of modern and contemporary artists. The exhibition will include a number of Duchamp’s most famous readymades, including “Hat Rack,” “Comb,” “Apolinère Enameled,” “With Hidden Noise,” “L.H.O.O.Q.” and “Why Not Sneeze?,” which together embody Duchamp’s then-radical idea that an artist’s ideas are more important than craft or aesthetics.
Lila discusses Marcel Duchamp Readymades and his relationship with friend and fellow artist Man Ray, and also Man Ray’s niece artist in her own right Naomi Savage.
Learn about novelist and essayist, journalist and critic George Orwell, author of 1984, Double Speak, Big Brother Is Watching You, and Animal Farm. Who is compared to noble laureates in literature. Turns out he’s relevant to the greatest writers because he understood what the world would become.
We hear about Betye Saar, an artist known for her assemblage and collage works and so many more.
