March 11, 1965. Twelve protestors stage a sit-in demonstration at the White House in relation to civil rights.

From the White House Diary:

On March 11, 1965, President Johnson devoted much of the day to discussing the civil rights demonstrations in Selma, Alabama. Just after noon, the President met with the National Newspaper Publishers Association, a group of Negro publishers, in the Cabinet Room and talked with them about the situation in Selma. Late in the morning a small group of civil rights demonstrators staged a sit-in in the East Wing of the White House. Several hours later policemen removed the demonstrators.”

This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features photographer and essayist Leo Rubinfien, who curated the Garry Winogrand retrospective opening this weekend at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

Winogrand’s pictures, typically taken with a hand-held camera, are classics of the street-photography genre that dominated American photography in the 1950s and ’60s. They captured American prosperity, the flight to the suburbs, the tumult of the Vietnam era and the retreat of Americans into a kind of self-interested hedonism in the 1970s and early ’80s.

The exhibition, which was co-organized by the National Gallery of Art, includes more than 300 pictures; the Yale University Press-published catalogue that accompanies the show includes more than 400. The book also includes numerous essays on Winogrand’s career and influence, including a particularly excellent essay by Rubinfien.

Among the pictures Rubinfien and host Tyler Green discuss are the photographs Winogrand took in the booming American West, such as Fort Worth (1975, detail)..

How to listen to the show: Download the show to your PC/mobile device. Subscribe to The MAN Podcast via iTunesSoundCloud or RSS. Stream the program at MANPodcast.com. See images of art discussed on the show.

Way down in the background,
I can see frustrated souls of cities burnin,
And all across the water vapor,
I see weapons barkin out the stamp of death,
And up in the clouds I can imagine UFO’s jumpin themselves,
Laughin they sayin,

Those people so uptight, they sure know how to make a mess

“In this expertly researched, wonderfully witty essay, O’Connell explains why we enjoy watching the spectacular artistic failures of others. The culture of the epic fail is a culture of “sublimated predation,” he writes. It’s a concept well understood by great artists, including Shakespeare, but understood little by its unfortunate victims, who often remain convinced of their creative genius even in the face of mass ridicule.” The San Francisco Chronicle on our own Mark O’Connell’s Epic Fail.

Tseng Kwong Chi

Tseng’s self-portraiture skirst along the border between serious and humorous.  His cheap Mao outfit was bought from a thrift store to wear to a dinner with his sister and mother. 

In his portrait series, he poses in front of famous Western tourist spots. He also impersonated a foreign dignitary and was able to weasel himself to rub shoulders among rich and famous figures.  

In his later work, arguably more contemplative and perhaps influenced by his HIV+ diagnosis, his human figure begins to fall away from the frame, taking up less space and attention, making room for the natural scenery and landscape.
