As you know, a big part of A L P is learning about iconic artists who have shaped art movements over the past century or so. We love finding new resources to learn about artists, and recently we discovered the GEM that is the Getty Podcast titled, Recording Artists. The subject of the first season, Radical Women, features six interviews with some of the most influential artists of the 20th century - and they all happen to be women.
From the Recording Artist website:
What was it like to be a woman making art during the feminist and civil rights movements? In this season of Recording Artists, host Helen Molesworth delves into the lives and careers of six women artists spanning several generations. Hear them describe, in their own words, their work, relationships, and feelings about the ongoing march of feminism. Contemporary artists and art historians join the conversation, offering their own perspectives on the recordings and exploring what it meant—and still means—to be a woman and an artist. This podcast is based on interviews from the 1960s and ’70s by Cindy Nemser and Barbara Rose, drawn from the archives of the Getty Research Institute.
We cannot recommend this podcast enough! Hearing interviews with some of our very favorite artists is the absolute coolest, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
