This spring Kettle’s Yard brings together the largest group of paintings by the American painter Agnes Martin (1912–2004) to be seen in the UK for over fifteen years. Born in Canada, Agnes Martin lived most of her life in the United States and became one of the foremost American artists of her generation. At the centre of this exhibition are ten canvases made between 1991 and 2002 when she lived in the New Mexico desert.
The exhibition runs from 15 May until 11 July 2010. A screening of Agnes Martin’s film Gabriel (1976) will take place on 13 June, at 6.30 p.m. A symposium exploring the work of Agnes Martin will be held on 14 June 2010, from 2 to 6 p.m., followed by a reception and late view of the exhibition at Kettle’s Yard.
