Helen Frankenthaler
Sea Change: A Decade of Paintings, 1974–1983

Tuesday, May 14, 2019, 6pm
Gagosian, Rome

Gagosian senior curator John Elderfield and director Jason Ysenburg will lead a tour of the exhibition Helen Frankenthaler: Sea Change: A Decade of Paintings, 1974–1983 at Gagosian, Rome. Elderfield and Ysenburg will explore the important period in Helen Frankenthaler’s work that began in the summer of 1974, which was sparked by the changing appearance of the wide vistas and moving tides of the Long Island Sound. The show coincides with an exhibition of her work at the Museo di Palazzo Grimani in Venice on the occasion of the 58th Venice Biennale. To attend the free event, RSVP to rometours@gagosian.com. Space is limited.
