Platemark


Platemark is a podcast about art and ideas. Hosted by Ann Shafer and Ben Levy, formerly colleagues at the Baltimore Museum of Art, conversations focus on museums, curating, critiques, value (market/conceptual), the Western canon, and prints and printmaking.

Oct 25, 2022

In s3e12, Platemark host Ann Shafer speaks with Maureen Warren, curator of European and (North) American art at the Krannert Art Museum at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. For ten years Maureen has been studying, researching, and writing about prints in the Dutch Republic, which was the basis of her dissertation at Northwestern University. At long last, all that hard work has come to fruition in an exhibition and scholarly catalogue. Fake News & Lying Pictures: Political Prints in the Dutch Republic examines the visual strategies of Dutch printmakers and the ways they used images to promote political interests. The exhibition runs from August 25–December 17, 2022. The exhibition will travel to other venues: University Galleries, University of San Diego, February 10–May 12, 2023; and Smith College Museum of Art, September 15, 2023–January 7, 2024.
