Visual artists often work in series, weaving their way through threads of thought, method, and inspiration. With engaged study of the series that comprise an artist’s career, the depth and breadth of one’s knowledge and curiosity is enhanced. A Series Conversation takes as its mission the investigation and celebration of series within individual artists’ oeuvres. Each hour-long session probes a specific series within an artist’s solo exhibition on view at the Modern, inviting conversation, reflection, and connections.

Stanley Whitney investigates the intricate possibilities of color and form in the realm of abstract painting. Since the mid-1970s, Whitney has been known for his multicolored, irregular grids on square canvases. Taking the essentialist grid of minimalism as his cue, his configurations are loose, uneven geometric lattices comprised of vibrant stacked color blocks that vary in hue, shape, and the handling of the paint. Whitney also utilizes color as subject, and his paintings often refer to literature, music, places, and other artists, connections that are bolstered in his titles.
