This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features Museum of Modern Art curator Anne Umland. Her new exhibition, "Magritte: The Mystery of the Ordinary, 1926-1938," is on view at MoMA through January 12, 2014. The exhibition catalogue, published by MoMA, is excellent.

Umland is one of the world’s top curators of modern art. Her exhibitions include 2011’s “Picasso: Guitars 1912-1914,” 2008’s “Joan Miro: Painting and Anti-Painting 1927-37,” and a 2001 retrospective of Alberto Giacometti.

This is Magritte’s Attempting the Impossible (1928) and a photograph by an anonymous photographer of Magritte posing with the painting. (The picture was plainly ‘art designed’ by Magritte.) For more on another way in which Magritte was interested in photography, see this post on Modern Art Notes.
