PRETTY RAW: AFTER AND AROUND HELEN FRANKENTHALER

Lois Foster Gallery
February 11 – June 7, 2015

Pretty Raw takes the artist Helen Frankenthaler as a lens through which to refocus our vision of modernist art over the past 50 years. In this version, decoration, humor, femininity and masculinity, the everyday, pleasure, and authorial control take center stage.
