This exhibition focuses on pure or “non-objective” abstractions within the permanent collection of the South Dakota Art Museum. Completely devoid of naturalistic depictions, these artworks take up as their subject matter the composition and creation of the artworks themselves. The works presented range in date from the early 1950s to today and have been collected by the museum since its founding in 1970. They represent only a fraction of the rich and diverse mixture of pure abstractions that the museum owns and cares for.
