Nancy Princenthal: Agnes Martin, Her Life and Art

Location: 132 W 21st Street, 6th Floor

Thursday, October 22, 6:30 PM
Nancy Princenthal is a New York-based critic and former Senior Editor of Art in America, for which she continues to write regularly, as well as a contributor to Artforum, The Village Voice, and The New York Times, and a core faculty member in the MFA Art Writing Program. Princenthal first saw one of Martin’s paintings when she was a teenager, and she first wrote about her when she was in college, leading to a brief, personal correspondence with Martin. With her new book, Agnes Martin, Her Life and Art, she tells Agnes Martin’s extraordinary life story for the first time, presenting at the same time a long-awaited critical discussion of her work. Her talk will include a reading and signing.
