ARCHIVED EVENTS

Larry Bell at The Wright Contemporary in Taos

AN EVENING WITH LARRY BELL
Saturday, September 10th, 5 p.m.

Some are familiar with Bell’s best-known works, the luminous cubes that secured his reputation in the 1960s as part of the California Light and Space Movement and the installations now at Dia Beacon in upstate New York. But few know the full arc of his career, from his pioneering vacuum process through the homages to guitars, light knots, furniture, and vapor drawings (two of which will be at the Wright through the end of September). An illustrated conversation with Wright director Ann Landi will take us through the highs (and maybe the lows) of this nimble and thoughtful artist’s life and work.

Agnes Martin - The Wright Contemporary

Film Presentation

BEFORE THE GRID
SATURDAY, JULY 30, 4-6PM

A few years back, two friends from Taos, photographer Kathleen Brennan and curator Jina Brenneman (formerly of the Harwood Museum), put together an illuminating film about the indomitable Agnes Martin, including information about a long-buried and long-running love affair which escaped even the notice of Martin’s biographer Nancy Princenthal. They showed the film to a small audience in Taos, but I’ve asked them back to discuss their discoveries and the difficulties of making movies about cherished art-world icons.

Ollock Film at The Wright Contemporary Gallery in Taos

Film Presentation

POLLOCK (2001)
SATURDAY, JULY 23, 5-7PM

On Saturday July 23, from 5 to 7, we’re presenting Ed Harris’s award-winning Pollock (2001), my all-time favorite biopic about an artist, starring Harris as Jackson and Marcia Gay Harden as Lee Krasner (and with Victoria’s Secret model Stephanie Seymour in a cameo role as Helen Frankenthaler). Why Pollock? Because it ties in nicely with our show “Explosive Abstraction”—so much of the grandfather of AbEx’s legacy continues in these works: large scale, gestural freedom, and highly personal iconographies.
