At age 23, Frank Stella (b. 1936) burst onto the New York art scene as an already mature artist with the inclusion of his now-legendary “black paintings” in the Sixteen Americans exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art. Seeming to banish illusionistic space and pictorial allusions, as well as the possibility of narrative content, the black artworks served as embodiments of Stella’s assertion that a painting was “a flat surface with paint on it—nothing more.”
There is something extraordinary taking place on Alcatraz: themes of freedom, free speech, and human rights are being explored within the walls of this former maximum-security penitentiary by Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei. ArtPoint members and guests have a very special opportunity to attend a presentation on this remarkable achievement by the FOR-SITE Foundation’s founding director and curator, Cheryl Haines, followed by a reception at the de Young.
