Ep. 5 - "Fallingwater" (1938) by Frank Lloyd Wright

17m · Art Snap’s Podcast · 25 Mar 18:27

It’s not a painting or a sculpture... but another form of art that deserves attention as we meander through the world of famous works of art together.

In this episode, Claire brings Fallingwater, designed by the famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright for the Kaufmann family in 1935, and constructed between 1936 - 1938. The woodland residence in the Appalachian Mountains of rural Pennsylvania has become an iconic work of organic architecture.

Built partly over a waterfall along the Bear Run River, the home embodies the idea that the surrounding natural world can be seamlessly incorporated into the design and made an experiential part of the living spaces. It blends in with its environment while presenting a unique and daring engineering challenge.

It’s on the UNECSO World Heritage List, the Smithsonian named it one of the “Places to See Before You Die,” and called "best all-time work of American architecture" by the American Institute of Architects.

Ep. 7 - "Fox Games" (1989) by Sandy Skoglund

This episode’s work of art was Claire’s pick, by her perhaps all-time favorite artist, Sandy Skoglund, called "Fox Games" (1989). Skoglund is an American born installation artist and photographer, currently teaching at Rutgers University while actively creating and exhibiting around the world.

Her Installation Art delights lovers of Pop Art and Surrealism with colorful and clever commentary. Creatures and treats invade the mundane worlds as if a brightly colored plague has infected the space. We are left wondering if this abundance is a delight, or a threat! One thing the viewer knows for sure: you simply can't look away.

Some favorite Installations discussed in the podcast include "Radiactive Cats," 1980, "Fox Games," 1989, "The Wild Inside" (1989), and "Cocktail Party," 1992.

Ep. 6 - "The Dinner Party" (1979) by Judy Chicago

This week, we look at Judy Chicago’s iconic feminist work, “The Dinner Party” (1979), which debuted at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art to both rave reviews and stark criticism.

Laid out as a dinner party, the formal table is set for 39 distinguished guests complete with elaborate handmade runners and 3D ceramic plates. It’s a table celebrating famous women in history and the female archetype - a place where women usually prepared the meal and then receded out of view.

Nothing like it had been done before, a push to bring the stories and histories of these women into the modern narrative.

A revolutionary artist with works spanning over 60 years, Judy Chicago continues to push the conversation with her themes of identify, self-exploration, and challenges to the status quo.
