The Modernist Spectrum: Color and Abstraction

at Oklahoma City Museum of Art
 
September 24, 2015 - December 31, 2016
 

“The Modernist Spectrum: Color and Abstraction” represents the United States after World War II, at a time when abstract art was not only on the rise thanks to Jackson Pollock and the Abstract Expressionists, but also associated with America’s global identity as a newly emergent geopolitical and cultural superpower.

The works in “The Modernist Spectrum” explore the invigorating ways in which postwar American artists, especially those associated with the Washington Color School, produced novel work that sought to reinvent abstract art through an alternatively rigorous and playful manipulation of color, line and shape. See works by Frank Stella and others in this exhibit, available now through the end of 2016.
