on Helen Frankenthaler
Wednesday, June 16, 2021, 4pm EDT
On the occasion of Helen Frankenthaler: Late Works, 1990–2003 at the Weatherspoon Art Museum, University of North Carolina, Greensboro, exhibition curator Douglas Dreishpoon, director of the Helen Frankenthaler catalogue raisonné, will discuss the works on view. Frankenthaler’s invention of the soak-stain technique expanded abstract painting’s possibilities while referencing figuration and landscape in unique ways. During the 1990s, as her practice continued to evolve through the use of diverse media and processes, she naturally transitioned from tackling canvases on the floor to using larger sheets of paper laid out on the floor or on tabletops for easier accessibility.

Giuseppe Penone À La Tourette
Le Couvent Sainte-Marie de La Tourette, in Éveux, France, is both an active Dominican priory and the last building designed by Le Corbusier. As a result, the priory, completed in 1961, is a center both religious and architectural, a site of spiritual significance and a magnetic draw for artists, writers, architects, and others. This fall, at the invitation of Frère Marc Chauveau, Giuseppe Penone will be exhibiting a selection of existing sculptures at La Tourette alongside new work directly inspired by the context and materials of the building. Here, Penone and Frère Chauveau discuss the power and peculiarities of the space, as well as the artwork that will be exhibited there.
