In s3e7 of Platemark series three, Ann Shafer and Tru Ludwig sit down with Elizabeth Wyckoff, Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Saint Louis Art Museum, to talk about the exhibition Catching the Moment: Contemporary Art from the Ted L. and Maryanne Ellison Simmons Collection, which is open until September 11, 2022.

The Simmons collection, recently acquired by the Saint Louis Art Museum, provided an opportunity to take a deep dive into three artists they collected in depth: Kiki Smith, Enrique Chagoya, and Tom Huck. The major through line is works that critique a broad range of social, political, and art historical concepts. Other artists in the exhibition include Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Bruce Nauman, H.C. Westermann, Tony Fitzpatrick, and Kara Walker.

Elizabeth, like so many curators of prints and drawings, is responsible for works of art on paper from the 15th century through tomorrow, even though her dissertation focused on Dutch print publisher Jan Pietersz Berendrecht, who was active in Haarlem in the 1620s. Hear about living in Amsterdam while researching Berendrecht, working with the Simmons, and what her (fictitious) retirement gift will be.
