Painter Dorothea Rockburne to discuss her work, Sept. 28
Posted September 24, 2004; 11:36 a.m.
Acclaimed abstract painter Dorothea Rockburne will present a slide lecture on her work at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 28, in room 219 at 185 Nassau St.
Titled "The Fourth Dimension: A Painter's Point of View," the lecture is being sponsored by the Program in Visual Arts .
Rockburne's relentless investigation of geometry, light and color, her insight into form and space, and her development of innovative materials and processes have contributed to her rise as a singular vision in abstraction.
She has exhibited her work in numerous solo shows, most recently at Dieu Donne Papermill and at Lawrence, Rubin, Greenberg, Van Doren Fine Art, both in New York. Over the years, her work has been featured in many major museum shows on abstraction. In 2004, she was included in "A Minimal Future?: Art as Object, 1958-68" at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles and in "Singular Forms (Sometimes Repeated): Art From 1961 to the Present" at the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
Rockburne's work is part of many important museum collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, the National Gallery of Art, the Fogg Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. In 2001, she was honored by being named a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
