MAKE IT NEW
ABSTRACT PAINTING FROM THE NATIONAL GALLERY OF ART, 1950–1975
AUGUST 2–OCTOBER 13, 2014
Organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., in collaboration with the Clark, Make It New: Abstract Painting from the National Gallery of Art, 1950–1975 examines the different paths taken by abstract painting in the first quarter-century of the postwar period, cutting across geographies and narrow timeframes as it evocatively engages Tadao Ando’s architecture. The exhibition presents Abstract Expressionist and color field masterpieces alongside other canonical works organized by the formal categories of pattern, texture, and shape.
