Long-term Installation, Second Floor, Picturing America Contemporary Gallery
This exhibition presents highlights from the Newark Museum’s collection of late modern abstraction, bringing together works by major figures and innovators experimenting with color and light, including Mark Rothko, Josef Albers, Donald Judd, Richard Anuszkiewicz, Alma Thomas and others. Minimalism and Color Field painting emerged in the 1950s and flourished throughout the 1960s and 70s. Favoring simplified geometric shapes and machine-made materials, such as steel, plastic, and fluorescent light, these artists created works that feature sleek, streamlined surfaces and bold inventive approaches to color.
