Frank Stella Prints: From the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation
April 22 – July 30, 2017
For over fifty years, Frank Stella (Phillips Academy Class of 1954) has created a significant body of abstract art comprised of paintings, reliefs, sculptures, drawings, and prints. Frank Stella Prints details the artist’s remarkable career as a printmaker. It presents, as evidence, over 100 prints that make apparent how his highly experimental endeavors have redefined the traditional print. The exhibition also offers a clear view of Stella’s stylistic evolution—a series of reinventions from the minimalist geometric abstraction of the early years to the baroque exuberance of the later gestural work. Frank Stella Prints is the artist’s first major print retrospective since 1982.
Frank Stella Prints is organized by the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art and curated by Richard H. Axsom. Support for the exhibition and related educational and outreach programs has been made possible by a grant from the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation.
Generous support for the Addison's presentation of this exhibition has been provided by the Arthur and Vivian Schulte Exhibitions Fund.
