Frank Stella (b. 1936) has been one of the most pivotal figures in the development of modern art since the late 1950s. Working in multiple mediums, he has created an extensive body of work that has persistently challenged the conventions of art making and expanded its definitions.
Over the past 60 years Stella has pushed the boundaries of Abstract Expressionism, helped usher in Minimalism, and blurred distinctions between painting and sculpture, continuously experimenting with new materials, abstract forms, and innovative techniques.
Frank Stella features a selection of works from LACMA’s permanent collection—many of which have not been on view in over 30 years—that represent significant developments in the artist’s oeuvre. From an example of his groundbreaking “Black Paintings” of the 1950s to his recent monumental sculpture, this exhibition presents a glimpse into the rich trajectory of Stella’s career.
