Scholar Weekend Gallery Talk

Scholar Weekend Gallery Talk

Elizabeth Smith, Executive Director, Helen Frankenthaler Foundation

In this ongoing event, PMA curators invite colleagues from the field of art history to study works in the PMA collection and to discuss key issues of 20th century art.

The guest is Elizabeth Smith, Executive Director, Helen Frankenthaler Foundation. Smith will discuss Frankenthaler’s pioneering work in printmaking—specifically in woodcuts—considering an example in the museum’s collection. She will also contextualize Frankenthaler’s practice with that of other artists of her generation on view in the PMA's galleries, ranging from Anthony Caro and Louise Nevelson to Lois Dodd and Alex Katz.
