anne truitt in ‘art at the center: 75 years of walker collections’ at walker art center, minneapolis, USA

1 October 2014
In 2015, the Walker will celebrate the 75th anniversary of its founding as a public art center dedicated to presenting and collecting the art of our times. Curated by the Walker's executive director Olga Viso and guest curator Joan Rothfuss, the exhibition looks at 75 years of collecting at the Walker-a history distinguished not only by bold and often risk-taking choices but also acquisitions that have consistently breached the boundaries of media or disciplines. The exhibition foregrounds many of these prescient choices.

On view for a two-year period will be many iconic works from the collection, including Edward Hopper's Office at Night (1940), Franz Marc's The Large Blue Horses (1911), Chuck Close's Big Self-Portrait (1967-1968), Yves Klein's Mondo Cane Shroud (1961), and others. Additional highlights include Dan Graham's sculpture New Space for Showing Videos, which showcases clips of some 60 visiting filmmakers as part of the long-running Walker Dialogue and Retrospectives series. The exhibition includes Anne Truitt's 1972 sculpture Australian Spring.

Curators: Olga Viso and Joan Rothfuss, with Andrew Blauvelt, Jill Vuchetich, and Mia Lopez

The exhibition runs from 16 October 2014 until 31 December 2016.
