Photographs by Corrado Serra.

Frank Stella: A Retrospective brings together the artist’s best-known works installed alongside lesser known examples to reveal the extraordinary scope and diversity of his nearly sixty-year career. Approximately 100 works, including icons of major museum and private collections, will be shown. Along with paintings, reliefs, sculptures, and prints, a selection of drawings and maquettes have been included to shed light on Stella’s conceptual and material process.” — Whitney Museum

“The essence of freedom … is something that is able to overcome its own boundaries. The question is not only to be able to define things, but also to have the boundaries be felt in the proper way they are defining, but not limiting.” — Frank Stella
