Agnes Martin: A Field of Vision: Paintings from the 1980s
August 3, 2006 - March 5, 2007
"I want to draw a certain response," Agnes Martin stated in an interview in 1966. "Not a specific response but that quality of response from people when they leave themselves behind, often experienced in nature--an experience of simple joy...the simple, direct going into a field of vision as you would cross an empty beach to look at the ocean."The fourth in Dia’s ongoing installment focuses on her practice during the 1980s.
"This volume is an irresistible summons to readers to turn their backs on the world, and follow the artist into her work."-Nancy Campbell, Times Literary Supplement
