New on View: The Prints of Ellsworth Kelly

Posted by Detroit Institute of Arts on Detroit Institute of Arts Site on 06/05/2013

This is the first retrospective of the artist's prolific printmaking career since the late 1980s. The exhibition coincides with the publication of the updated catalogue raisonné of Kelly's work. As a thorough overview of his printmaking activity, it presents the consistency that is characteristic of his never-ending interest in exploring the effects of pure color and form through the now familiar curves, contrasts and grids that became his preferred motifs. All the prints come from the collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer of Portland, Oregon. The exhibition was organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and it is at the DIA until September 8, 2013.

Nancy Sojka, Curator and Department Head of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs at the DIA, curated this exhibition and in this video, she provides a brief introduction.
