installation views:



















matthew marks is pleased to announce ellsworth kelly: los angeles, the first exhibition in his new gallery in los angeles.

at 88, ellsworth kelly is among the world’s most distinguished living artists. since his first one-person exhibition more than 60 years ago, his consistently original vision has been without peer. his work has been the subject of countless museum exhibitions around the world including major retrospectives organized by the museum of modern art, new york (1973); the stedelijk museum, amsterdam (1979); and the guggenheim museum, new york (1996). currently, he has two museum exhibitions on view in munich, ellsworth kelly: black and white at the haus der kunst and ellsworth kelly: plant drawings at the pinakothek der moderne, which travels to the metropolitan museum of art, new york, in june 2012. ellsworth kelly: prints and paintings opens at the los angeles county museum of art on january 22, 2012.

many thanks to matthew marks gallery (adrian rosenfeld, bryan krueger, helen cowdrey) for providing images for use in this post!
