Frank Stella 1958
CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS  •  Arthur M. Sackler Museum  •  Ongoing

Nineteen fifty-eight was Frank Stella's first year of independent work. After graduating from Princeton, he moved to New York City where he shared a studio with the young sculptor Carl Andre and threw himself into a series of monumental abstract canvases. Until now, these 30 works have been either neglected or treated as a prelude to the proto-minimalist black paintings that Stella began at the end of the year.

Notable works in the exhibition include:

Cricket/Kit Construction, an early sculptural assemblage that has never before been seen publicly.

Morro Castle, one of the first Black paintings.

Them Apples, a painted construction of cardboard and wood that highlights the influence of Jasper Johns on Stella's practice.

Astoria, a yellow monochrome from the Museum of Modern Art
Blue Horizon, a blue monochrome from Brown University.

After its premiere at the Harvard University Art Museums the exhibition will travel to The Menil Collection in Houston, Texas  (May 25-August 20, 2006) and the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, Ohio (September 9-December 31, 2006). A symposium on the artist will be presented at Harvard on April 8, 2006.
