About

Discover the power and effectiveness of subtlety and minimalism in art through the work of Agnes Martin in Tate Modern’s extensive exhibition.

The first retrospective of the American artist’s work since her death in 2004, this exhibition demonstrates how Martin became renowned for her sensitive approach to colour and form, producing evocative canvasses generally marked out in pencil grids and pale colour washes.

Covering the full range of her efforts, this is the most wide-ranging presentation of her work to have been exhibited. The paintings on show illustrate how she became a leading player in the otherwise male-dominated abstraction scene of the 1950s and the 1960s, showing everything from her early experimental pieces to her later, more confident and established work.
