Ellsworth Kelly at 100

The Pavilions, Room 2
Closing March 17

To mark the centennial of American artist Ellsworth Kelly (b. 1923, d. 2015), Glenstone presents Ellsworth Kelly at 100, a major survey of the artist’s work charting his career and contributions to American abstraction. Kelly frequently revisited shapes and motifs he observed from his own lived experience throughout his seven-decade career, exploring form, color, line, and space through painting, sculpture, collage, drawing, and photography. Works on view include seminal early paintings Painting for a White Wall, (1952) and Painting in Three Panels (1956), as well as examples from the iconic Chatham and Spectrum series. Yellow Curve (1990), a monumental floor painting installation that spans nearly 1000 square feet will be on view for the first time in more than thirty years since it was conceived for an exhibition at Portikus am Main in Frankfurt .

Ellsworth Kelly at 100 will be on view from May 4, 2023 to March of 2024 and will travel to international venues following its presentation at Glenstone.
