Vija Celmins on Agnes Martin

Artists on Artists Lecture Series

October 4, 2004    add to my calendar

Born in Riga, Latvia, in 1938, Celmins immigrated to the US when she was ten years old and earned her MFA in painting from UCLA in 1965. She has exhibited widely throughout the world in the last four decades, including traveling retrospectives through the United States in 1992–94 (organized by the ICA, Philadelphia); and through Europe (1996–97; starting at the ICA, London). In 2002, a retrospective of Celmins’ prints was held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

An exhibition of early paintings by Agnes Martin from 1957–67 is on view at Dia:Beacon.
