"No wonder they cannot appreciate the really central Kafka joke: that the horrific struggle to establish a human self results in a self whose humanity is inseparable from that horrific struggle. That our endless and impossible journey toward home is in fact our home."

— David Foster Wallace, Consider the Lobster, ”Certainly the End of Something or Other, One Would Sort of Have to Think” (via clothedinsky)

This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features Jack Whitten and was taped in front of a live audience at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. 
MCASD just opened the first Whitten retrospective. Titled "Jack Whitten: Five Decades of Painting," and curated by MCASD’s Kathryn Kanjo, the exhibition features 60 canvases from the early 1960s through this year. The show reveals how, at a time when so many artists shrugged off painting, Whitten intensified his interest in the medium by marrying acrylic and canvas to conceptual strategies in an effort to address key issues in art and American society. After it closes in San Diego on January 4, 2015, it will travel to the Walker Art Center and the Wexner Center for the Arts. 
This is the second time Whitten has been on The MAN Podcast. Last year he talked with host Tyler Green on the occasion of an exhibition at the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University. 
The image above is Whitten’s Prime Mover (1974), one of the ‘squeegee’ canvases that Green and Whitten discuss on this week’s program.
