Kemper Museum

see current exhibition gallery see upcoming exhibitions    

This exhibition draws together more than 30 significant works from public and private collections and highlights important periods and themes from Olitski's career. With works from his early Stain Paintings of the 1960s to his Late Paintings, this is the first exhibition of the artist’s paintings since his death in 2007. Russian-born artist Jules Olitski (1922–2007) first received international acclaim as a Color Field painter and continued to experiment throughout his career. A fully illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibition, organized by the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art and curated by E.A. Carmean Jr., Alison de Lima Greene, and Karen Wilkin. After its showing at the Kemper Museum, the exhibition travels to The Museum of Fine Arts-Houston; Toledo Museum of Art, Ohio; and American University Museum, at the Katzen Arts Center, Washington, D.C.; in 2012.
