"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.
