Hilma af Klint: Paintings for the Future
January 31 - April 23
Before there was Vasily Kadinsky and Piet Mondrian, there was Hilma af Klint. The revolutionary Swede and abstract artist pioneered the form starting in 1906 using bold colors and jarring shapes that disconnected her brazen imagery from real-world references. She insisted that the public was unable to accept her vision, which is why her extensive collection flew under the radar until 1986, more than 40 years after her death. Since then, her technique has garnered critical acclaim the world over. Paintings for the Future serves as the first solo exhibition in the United States, providing New York audiences with a rare chance to praise this unsung artistic hero and explore the very works that inspired a racaus new approach.
