Agnes Martin: The Islands

University of Michigan Museum of Art, Ann Arbor, MI


A grant was made in support of the exhibition of Agnes Martin’s 12-part painting entitled, The Islands at the University of Michigan Museum of Art on view November 20, 2004 - February 13, 2005. Each painting, though each slightly different, is seventy-two inches square with a composition of white and light blue paint with thin graphite lines. The series, owned by the Whitney Museum of American Art, is rarely seen because of the space required to exhibit it in its entirety. The paintings will be hung in the museum’s apse space, which lends itself well to the contemplative nature of Martin’s work.
