Bold Abstractions: Selections from the DMA Collection 1966–1976

February 20, 2015 to August 2, 2015 | Barrel Vault and Hanley, Lamont, Rachofsky, and Stoffel Galleries

Bold Abstractions: Selections from the DMA Collection 1966-1976 explores work produced by artists who challenged the boundaries of traditional easel painting over the course of a decade, beginning in 1966. On view February 20 through August 2, 2015, in the DMA’s Barrel Vault and two of the surrounding galleries, the exhibition brings together twenty-eight works of art drawn exclusively from the Museum’s holdings and private collections in Dallas. Inspired by the work of Frank Bowling, Barry Le Va, and Chosil Kil, this exhibition examines the sophisticated formal and phenomenological investigations that push paint—and painting—beyond its historical format.
