This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features Katharina Grosse. The Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas just opened “Wunderblock,” an indoor/outdoor exhibition of new Grosses. It’s on view through September 1.
These pictures are from Grosse’s 2007 exhibition at The Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago. The image at the top is the cover of the outstanding, highly recommended catalogue for the show. (It’s still available from The Renaissance Society — and for just $30!) Grosse and MAN Podcast host Tyler Green discussed the show and its catalogue, and in particular the idea of time-based painting that Grosse explored in this exhibition. The first two pictures here were taken right after the show opened, on April 29, 2007. The third is from May 10 and the last photo is from June 10. The Renaissance Society’s website offers up more images and videos about Grosse and her work.
Grosse is known for her intensely colorful, usually spray-painted installations that often begin on walls but that typically extend into a room, the surrounding space(s) and who knows where else. There’s an astonishing amount of her work on Flickr and almost everything she’s ever made is on her own website.

I love when one of my paintings can make someone cry.
