Join MOCA Jacksonville for an evening of community, art, live music, and lite bites celebration the opening of Project Atrium: Frank Stella. Frank Stella returns to MOCA Jacksonville following his successful print exhibition in 2018, Frank Stella Unbound, this time for an installation in the Atrium to celebrate the museum’s 100th anniversary.
Frank Stella has produced an extraordinary body of work over the past six decades. Since his first solo gallery exhibition at Leo Castelli Gallery in 1960, when he presented his famous “Black Paintings”, Stella has continued his interrogation of the painterly medium throughout his career. Paintings based on the rejection of the conventionally rectangular canvas and of painting-as-representation, gave way to complex wall reliefs made from paint, cardboard, and felt. He further blurred the distinction between painting and sculpture in baroque works that practically burst off the wall. Always interested in new technologies, Stella’s recent work uses digital modeling to explore how subtle changes in scale, texture, color and material can affect our perception and experience of an object.
Project Atrium is a bold series of site-specific and site-sensitive art installations created by emerging and mid-career artists and commissioned by MOCA Jacksonville.
