"Line Into Color" Opens at Gagosian
A new exhibition of the later works of Helen Frankenthaler '49 opened today at the Gagosian Gallery in Beverly Hills. The show, titled Line Into Color, Color Into Line and curated by John Elderfield, includes "works where the painter was exploring the division between drawing and painting." It will run until October 29.
The show was featured in the Q&A section of the LA Times, through an interview with the curator. In the interview, Elderfield spoke of the artist's ties to Bennington. When asked how Frankenthaler made the connections that brought her into the art scene, he said "through her friendship with critic Clement Greenberg she got to meet all those people. She met Greenburg when she was at Bennington College in Vermont" and convinced him to attend a showing of her student work.
Line Into Color, Color Into Line, "offers a chance to re-examine works by an artist who doesn't get much air time in Los Angeles."
