Upcoming Exhibitions

Repeat Performances: Seriality and Systems Art since 1960
Ellen Johnson Gallery
September 4 – December 23, 2007

An Agnes Martin grid painting, East River (1960), introduces this exhibition of modern and contemporary works based on the Allen's renowned collection. Drawing on the legacy of Cubist fragmentation, as well as Minimalism's repetition and reduction of form, the objects on view by Jim Dine, Leonardo Drew, Eva Hesse, Sol LeWitt, and others explore the infinite possibilities of serialized motifs and highly ordered compositional methods.
