Approaching Infinity: The Richard Green Collection of Meticulous Abstraction
On view on the Museum's second floor.
Abstract modes of painting and drawing were a constant throughout the 20th century, climaxing by 1960. This exhibition of 44 works on canvas and paper examines the next chapter of abstract painting and drawing from 1969 to the present. By focusing on artists who have taken a meticulous approach to abstraction—many of whom explore notions of complexity, iteration, and time-based creation—local collector Richard Green has composed a history of and an introduction to art of the 21st century. Approaching Infinity draws works from Green's collection by such artists as Yayoi Kusama, Stephen Antonakos, John Cage, and Bruce Conner as well as the artists they inspired to examine the boundlessness of contemporary abstraction
