BSL Tour: Agnes Martin

This is the first retrospective of Agnes Martin’s work since 1994. Martin lived and worked in New York, becoming a key figure in the male-dominated fields of 1950s and 1960s abstraction. Covering the full breadth of her practice, this extensive exhibition will reveal Martin’s early and little known experiments with different media and trace her development from abstraction to grids and striped canvases that became her hallmark.  Martin believed that spiritual inspiration and not intellect created great work. ‘Without awareness of beauty, innocence and happiness’ Martin wrote ‘one cannot make works of art’.

This tour is delivered in BSL by guide Jonathan Brown.
