Jo Baer: The Minimalist Years
September 12, 2002 - June 15, 2003
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.
Funding for this exhibition has been provided by Lannan Foundation, The Richard Florsheim Art Fund, and the members of the Dia Art Council.
