The Stars of the Washington Color School Get a Transcendent Survey—See It Here
Show of the day: "Impulse" is on view at Pace London.
November 3, 2017–December 22, 2017
What the Gallery Says: “Unprecedented experiments in pure color, improvisational techniques and the sculptural potential of painting in the 1960s and ’70s by Morris Louis, Kenneth Noland, Sam Gilliam, Ed Clark, and Frank Bowling.”
Why It’s Worth a Look: The Washington Color School comes to London, including a late, great Louis canvas from 1958 lent by a private collector, plus another from the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven. The only thing missing in the white-cube gallery is a cool, John Coltrane soundtrack.
