This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features Judy Fiskin. 
Fiskin’s newest work, I’ll Remember Mama (2013) is featured in "Made in L.A. 2014," the Hammer Museum’s biennial of art from Los Angeles. The exhibition, curated by Connie Butler and Michael Ned Holte, is on view through September 7. 
I’ll Remember Mama cleverly jumps off from George Stevens’ 1948 film "I Remember Mama," which was nominated for five Academy Awards, to consider the ways in which Fiskin’s mother has aged, and how that’s reflected in their relationship. 
Fiskin came to prominence in the 1970s as a photographer who was part of the New Topographics movement. While she was not included in the famous all-male exhibition of that title, Fiskin’s examinations of vernacular architecture in southern California, New York, and beyond earned her significant acclaim.
In 2011, J. Paul Getty Museum curator Virginia Heckert published "Some Aesthetic Decisions: The Photographs of Judy Fiskin" in conjunction with the exhibition “In Focus: Los Angeles, 1945-1980,” a Pacific Standard Time exhibition of the Getty’s holdings of Southern California photographs. The 360-page monograph includes a terrific interview Fiskin did with artist John Divola. 
This is a picture from Fiskin’s "31 Views of San Bernadino" (1974) series.
