Carter Foster, Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs, leads a gallery talk on Form Into Spirit: Ellsworth Kelly’s ’Austin.’
In Form into Spirit: Ellsworth Kelly’s ’Austin’, explore how Austin’s conceptual origins began in the seminal period Kelly spent in France (1948-54) when he immersed himself in the country’s artistic traditions and monuments. See first models and designs for the building’s initial conception in the mid-1980s and explore Austin’s four main motifs: Spectrum, Black and White, Color Grid, and Totem.
