Diebenkorn in New Mexico
June 21 – September 7, 2008
This exhibition will be the first to concentrate on the body of works created during Richard Diebenkorn’s formative and relatively little-known Albuquerque period of 1950-52, including paintings, works on paper and a rare sculpture made from welded scrap iron.
Brett Weston: Out of the Shadow
This major retrospective exhibition will feature photographs taken by Brett Weston (1911–1993) from the 1920s through the 1980s. Throughout his career, Weston manipulated the technical qualities of the camera to frame objects close up and push subject matter toward abstraction. These experiments placed him at the forefront of non-objective fine-art photography.
Co-organized by The Phillips Collection and the Oklahoma City Museum of Art.
