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.

As the story goes, artist Frank Stella decided to read Herman Melville’s 1851 novel Moby Dick after visiting an aquarium with his family and becoming intrigued with a beluga or white whale. Stella’s response upon reading Melville’s account of the now legendary great white, Moby Dick was a pledge to make a painting for each of Melville’s 135 chapters. The Modern is showing five magnificent works from the artist’s Moby Dick series in Frank Stella A Retrospective.
