  • “Brice Marden, Work of the 1990s: Paintings, Drawings, and Prints”

    Dallas Museum of Art
    1717 North Harwood
    February 14–April 25, 1999

    It might have been more logical to begin a survey of Brice Marden’s recent work in the mid-’80s, when he began making paintings with hosts of undulating lines that snake their way through translucent color fields. But when you’re being offered some of the most beautiful and accomplished works being made these days, who’s to complain? Comprising twenty-four paintings and as many works on paper, this exhibition (curated by Charles Wylie) takes up where Marden’s 1991 “Cold Mountain” show left off. Feb. 14–Apr. 25; travels to Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, DC, May 27–Sept. 5; Miami Art Museum, Dec. 17, 1999–Mar. 5, 2000; Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, May 20–Aug. 13, 2000.
