Five sculptural towers of colour by the acclaimed artist Anne Truitt (1921-2004, American) are on view adjacent to the BMA's Asian and African art collections. This juxtaposition, as well as brief in-gallery essays by the BMA's curators of contemporary, Asian, and African art, invite visitors to contemplate the ways in which essential visual elements such as colour and shape transcend time and geography.
The BMA had two in-depth exhibitions of Truitt's work during her lifetime, providing important support for a woman artist who was under-recognised for her significant contributions to the development of 20th-century American abstraction.
The exhibition runs from 23 October 2016 until 6 June 2017.
