SPILLING OVER: PAINTING COLOR IN THE 1960s
The exhibition, organized by the Whitney Museum in New York, brings together paintings from the 1960s and the early 1970s that inventively use bold, saturated and even hallucinatory colors to activate perception. During that time, many artists adopt acrylic paint, a new plastic-based medium, exploring its broad technical possibilities and a wider range of tones. Drawn from the Whitney’s collection, the exhibition “Spilling Over” includes important works such as New Day (1967) by Kenneth Noland.
