Subseries B. "Barnett Newman." Mar. 24-July 7, 2002


Scope and Content Note

Ann Temkin worked in conjunction with the Tate Gallery in London to organize a retrospective on the work of Barnett Newman, featuring more than 100 works that had not been seen together in over 30 years. This exhibition traced the artists' conceptual development from his early surrealist-inspired drawings of the 1940s to his participation in the New York art scene at the height of the abstract expressionist movement and his later role in the development of minimalist and conceptual art in the 1960s.


Exhibition records are divided by administrative, research, object, and publication files with additional research files appended to the end of the subseries.
