Michael Auping

Michael Auping, the Modern’s Chief Curator, brings Declaring Space: Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman, Lucio Fontana, Yves Klein to Fort Worth. The works created by these artists had a dramatic effect on the complex development of space and color in abstract painting as it evolved in the years following World War II. For Tuesday Evenings Auping provides insight into these artists’ profound influence on a set of spatial themes evoked in abstract art in the latter half of the twentieth century, which led to the engagement of what Auping terms as “a new realm of abstract theater.”
