The image at the top of this post is Robert Irwin’s masterpiece 1° 2° 3° 4° (1997) at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, At bottom is John Divola’s Zuma #8 (1977). Several of Divola’s late-’70s “Zuma”-series pictures feature similar perspective shifts, in ways that may have been informed by the light-and-space movement. On this week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast, Divola told host Tyler Green that he doesn’t think Irwin was influenced by his Zuma pictures, but who knows…
Three Southern California museums are featuring a Divola retrospective this fall: The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (through July 6, 2014), the Pomona College Museum of Art (through December 22) and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art (through January 12, 2014). The exhibition catalogue was produced by the Santa Barbara Museum of Art and includes contributions from curators at all three museums, plus an interview with Divola conducted by the Tate’s Simon Baker. It is published by Delmonico Books Prestel (and it’s just $35 on Amazon).
The exhibitions are the first museum shows to examine Divola’s four-decade career. His influential work is among the first to merge painting, photography and conceptual practice.
