Frank Stella: A Retrospective

Herbst Exhibition Galleries
November 5, 2016February 26, 2017

Frank Stella: A Retrospective is the first comprehensive US exhibition of the artist’s work since 1970. In 1959, at the age of 23, Stella (b. 1936) burst onto the New York art scene as an already mature artist with his now-legendary series of black paintings, which served as a pictorial manifesto of the artist’s assertion that a painting was “a flat surface with paint on it—nothing more.”

Adults $25, seniors 65+ $22, students with current ID $15, youths 6–17 $15, members and children 5 and under free. Prices subject to change without notice.

This exhibition is organized by the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. Curator’s Circle: Ray and Dagmar Dolby Family Fund, The Herbst Foundation Inc. Additional support is provided by Richard and Peggy Greenfield, Dr. Giselle Parry-Farris and Mr. Ray K. Farris, and Dorothy Saxe.

WAIS AND KNOWLES GALLERIES OF TEXTILE ARTS
July 23, 2016February 12, 2017

On the Grid: Textiles and Minimalism presents a broad range of textile traditions from around the world that share many of the same aesthetic choices ascribed to Minimalist works. This exploration underscores the universality of the movement’s underlying design principles, which include regular, symmetrical, or gridded arrangements; repetition of modular elements; direct use and presentation of materials; and an absence of ornamentation.

The Sumatran Ship Cloth

Gallery 31
April 2, 2016February 12, 2017

The Sumatran Ship Cloth presents three ceremonial textiles from the Lampung region of south Sumatra, a region of Indonesia where ship imagery is a prominent theme in woven arts. For many Indonesians, the sea represents their lifeblood, and ship imagery reflects social structures, rituals, and cosmological beliefs. These textiles from the Museums’ permanent collection, dating from the 19th and 20th centuries, are being shown for the first time.
