May 15–August 30, 2009

Kemper Museum

see upcoming exhibitions    

This survey of paintings by the late Dan Christensen (1942–2007) documents his never-ending quest to understand the possibilities of color, paint, and pictorial space. Though long associated with the Color Field movement, Christensen’s relentless experimentation with tools and techniques makes him resistant to any one label or category but does place him among this country’s most ambitious abstract and gestural painters. A native Nebraskan, Christensen was a 1964 graduate of the Kansas City Art Institute.
