Artist-to-Artist Interview Series: Molly Zuckerman-Hartung

Artist-to-Artist Interview Series: Molly Zuckerman-Hartung

Rohan DaCosta and I recently had the pleasure of speaking with fine artist Molly Zuckerman-Hartung over Skype. Molly took us on a virtual tour of the Yale Norfolk grounds in upstate Connecticut, where she was a visiting artist on their Yale-affiliated summer school, and showed us some of the works-in-progress in her studio. Our conversation spanned two days. Zuckerman-Hartung talks about her perspectives on painting, philosophy, and politics in addition to shedding light on her experiences teaching and traveling. She discusses the intentions behind her early performance work Disaster Kitchen as well as two recent exhibitions: QUEEN at Lyles and King, NY, 2016, and TIME SHARE at Fiendish Plots, Lincoln, NE, 2016.
