Mid-Century Modern: Painting and Sculpture in Fort Worth

Friday, September 15, 2023

First Stop at The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth

Robert Motherwell: Pure Painting is the first presentation in more than a quarter century to fully examine the mastery of Robert Motherwell (1915 - 1991)., a major figure who shaped postwar art.

The Modern is an especially fitting venue to mount this exhibition given its institutional commitment to the artist's work, holding over fifty works in a variety of media in its collection and hosting the final retrospective organized during Motherwell's lifetime in 1991.

Beginning with the abstracted figurative works that dominated Motherwell's first decade of painting as he emerged in the New York art world in the early 1940's. the exhibition highlights the subsequent key series that defined his oeuvre.

Followed by a seated luncheon at Café Modern,

Conclude at The Amon Carter Museum

The World Outside: Louise Nevelson at Midcentury illuminates Nevelson's multidimensional mastery of form and attunement to postwar American culture. One of the first exhibitions to explore Louise Nevelson's midcentury sculptures and works on paper in dialogue with their historical moment, the Carter-organized exhibition features over 50 defining artworks by Nevelson on view together for the first time, including wall works, installations, and prints from across the country.
