Ellsworth Kelly's Austin


The exhibition Form into Spirit: Ellsworth Kelly’s ‘Austin’ on view at the Blanton from February 18, 2018 to April 29, 2018 explored Austin’s conceptual origins from throughout Kelly’s seven-decade career.

In the Gallery Guide below, you can delve into the four sections that illuminate Kelly’s explorations of Austin’s major motifs: Spectrum, Black and White, Color Grid, and Totem. These formal concepts were deeply meaningful to him throughout his career, and he created them in drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture.
