Herrera, Carmen - Whitney Museum of Art New York

Carmen Herrera is still actively working, painting every day in her New York studio. This presentation (16.09.2016 - 02.01.2017) of approximately 50 works spans three decades of Herrera's work, beginning with the early abstractions she made while living in Paris in the years following World War II.

forged a geometric hard-edged style that she has retained to this day, employing a distilled palette of just two or three colors for each composition. The exhibition will include a selection of abstractions from Paris, a rare gathering of her important Blanco y Verde series, as well as a selection of later paintings, drawings, and several of her rare three-dimensional works. The show, Herrera’s first solo museum presentation in New York since the 1998 exhibition at El Museo del Barrio, will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue. (Text: Whitney Museum of Art)
