Contemporary Artists about abstraction

image

On the “Conversations” page of our exhibition website you can hear contemporary artists speak about a work of their choice in Inventing Abstraction. Recently Wolfgang Laib spoke about his special relation with Kazimir Malevich’s White on White. Laib’s current installation Pollen from Hazelnut in the Museum’s atrium, on view through March 11th, 2013, gives his story a particular resonance.
