Agnes Martin: Homage to [a] Life: Paintings 1990-2004
April 6, 2007 - November 26, 2007
Spanning the years 1990-2004, the final installment in Dia’s five-part retrospective devoted to Agnes Martin’s oeuvre will include "Innocent Love," a suite commissioned by Dia in 1999, in addition to other paintings that also explore her long-standing preoccupation with states of innocence, joy, and happiness. Exceptional among these signature works from her final years are the anomalous "black" paintings informed by a more foreboding or disturbing tenor, they recall some of her first mature statements of the late 1950s.
This exhibition is made possible through the generosity of the Dedalus Foundation.
