Hugh Lane

Such Friends


Episode 78: I met Kathleen Dixon Donnelly on Facebook. She’s a writer who lives in Birmingham, UK with her Irish husband. She is originally from Pittsburgh.

Our research cross paths & her blog, Such Friends covers a lot of the same people in the Irish Literary Revival that I am writing about.  I wanted to have her on the podcast so  we could chat about the subject of my upcoming book.

Exalted Position

Episode 44 : What is art?  What gives an image meaning?  Exalted Position, which will run at the Peter Blum Gallery in Manhattan until August 31, 2016, suggests that an object can rise above its material status into the realm of the spiritual or the symbolic.  The exhibition features new works by artists Graham Durward, Irina Rozovsky, and Roger White.  Through their works these three artists offer entry points into the possibility of gleaning transcendent meaning out of mundane and ordinary moments.

Brooke has a casual, free-form conversation with curator Vlad Smolkin about Exalted Position, his career, and the Peter Blum Gallery.  The interview ends with Brooke describing her current writing project about early 20th century Irish art dealer Hugh Lane.

The Peter Blum Gallery is located at 20 West 57th Street, NYC, and the Exalted Position exhibition will run until the end of August, 2016.
