I had the pleasure of attending the Frank Stella exhibit currently on view at The Whitney Museum of American Art when I ran unto NYC for 24 hours last week. It was so much more than I anticipated. I was so moved and inspired by the movement, color and geometry of it all.
A field trip is in order for any modern art lover.
The Museum will present a career retrospective of Frank Stella (b. 1936), one of the most important living American artists. This survey will be the most comprehensive presentation of Stella’s career to date, showcasing his prolific output from the mid-1950s to the present through approximately 120 works, including paintings, reliefs, maquettes, sculptures, and drawings. Co-organized by the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and the Whitney, this exhibition will feature Stella’s best-known works alongside rarely seen examples drawn from collections around the world. Accompanied by a scholarly publication, the exhibition will fill the Whitney’s entire fifth floor, an 18, 000-square-foot gallery that is the Museum’s largest space for temporary exhibitions.
Frank Stella: A Retrospective is organized by Michael Auping, Chief Curator, Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, in association with Adam D. Weinberg, Alice Pratt Brown Director, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, and with the assistance of Carrie Springer, Assistant Curator, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
“Frank Stella is back. His grand, high-spirited, slightly overstuffed retrospective has taken over the fifth and largest exhibition floor of the new Whitney Museum of American Art, where it looks great. ”
—The New York Times
I hope you enjoyed the glimpse into this special exhibit that really spoke to me.
