Jo Baer: The Minimalist Years
September 12, 2002–June 15, 2003, Dia Chelsea
The Minimalist Years, 1960-1975, an exhibition of works by American artist Jo Baer, brings together some twenty paintings and a number of drawings and prints produced in the years she lived in New York City. The exhibition includes a number of Baer's early works, which address the relations of pictorial edge and field and of color and composition, plus more experimental works from the mid-seventies, which explore questions of flatness versus volume, frontality versus multiple vantage points, and objecthood versus illusion.
Jo Baer was born in Seattle in 1929. She lives and works in Amsterdam.
