Plenary discussion

A symposium exploring the works of Agnes Martin. Four leading scholars present new research and lead discussion around Martin’s work. Speakers will explore new directions in its interpretation, including a consideration of the part her lesbian sexuality may be seen to play in her particular development of abstraction, and an examination of her links to other women artists of the time.
