Docent Lecture: "Frank Stella: A Retrospective", by Jim Kohn

Stella, Lac Laronge III, 1969

2:30pm3:30pm

Frank Stella burst onto the art scene in 1959 at age 23, with his series of black paintings. Over the years his abstract compositions became increasingly complex and dynamic, moving out from the walls into the third dimension, expanding the very definition of painting. The de Young is the only West Coast venue for this retrospective covering six decades of Stella’s work, including paintings, wall mounted reliefs, and sculptures.

Artists sometimes deliberately set out to deceive you, using what is right in front of you: meticulously rendered textures, scrupulous detail, tangible space, immaculate shadows, and life-sized objects to convince you that the objects are real. Can you believe what is right before your eyes?
