Ellsworth Kelly’s ’Austin’ uses forms and motifs explored by the artist over many decades. It was also deeply inspired by his crucial formative early years in France in the 1950s. Our Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs Carter Foster will examine these topics and also delve into the more specific history of the building’s creation, which began in California in the mid-1980s.
