Agnes Martin: Homage to [a] Life: Paintings 1990-2004
April 6, 2007 - November 26, 2007
Spanning the years 1990-2004, the final installment in Dia’s five-part retrospective devoted to Agnes Martin’s oeuvre will include "Innocent Love," a suite commissioned by Dia in 1999, in addition to other paintings that also explore her long-standing preoccupation with states of innocence, joy, and happiness. Exceptional among these signature works from her final years are the anomalous "black" paintings informed by a more foreboding or disturbing tenor, they recall some of her first mature statements of the late 1950s.
"This volume is an irresistible summons to readers to turn their backs on the world, and follow the artist into her work."-Nancy Campbell, Times Literary Supplement
