Jacolby Satterwhite has been making moves from MoCADA’s 2011 PIXELATING: Black in New Dimensions to the 2014 Whitney Biennial and the Sundance Film Festival.

Satterwhite uses video, performance, 3D animation, fibers, drawing and printmaking that explore themes of memory, desire, and personal and public mythology.

Make your way to The Studio Museum in Harlem’s When the Stars Begin to Fall: Imagination and the American South, where Satterwhite and his mom’s (Patricia Satterwhite) work is currently on view, along with 34 other artists. The exhibition closes this Sunday - See it today or for free at Studio Museum’s Target Free Sundays!

This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist Deborah Grant and J. Paul Getty Museum curator Scott Allan.  

Grant makes paintings deeply rooted in art history, but takes as a significant goal the adding of new names and bodies of work to the roster of artists we know. Her work mixes folk traditions, the work of famous artists and our cultural history to build narratives that use our past to address our present. Her work is included in "When the Stars Begin to Fall; Imagination and the American South," a group show at the Studio Museum in Harlem that was curated by Thomas J. Lax. The show is open through this weekend and then travels to the NSU Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale in August. Earlier this year The Drawing Center exhibited "Deborah Grant: Christ You Know it Ain’t Easy!!", which was curated by Claire Gilman. 

The image at top is of Grant’s The Birth of a Genius in a Midnight Sun (2012), which is in the Studio Museum show. A detail is below it.

Next, Allan, the curator of "The Scandalous Art of James Ensor," at the J. Paul Getty Museum. It will be on view through September 7. The show focuses on Ensor’s wild, groundbreaking work of the 1880s and 1890s, and places the artist’s two greatest works in the context of Ensor’s larger project. The Getty’s own Christ’s Entry into Brussels in 1889 is famous and well-known, but the exhibition also includes Ensor’s 1887 The Temptation of St. Anthony, a mammoth drawing never before exhibited in the United States. It’s in the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago, to which this exhibition will travel after it’s in LA.
