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.
