"FOCUS: Agnes Martin" @ Lévy Gorvy In London


FOCUS: Agnes Martin is an exhibition that places the artist’s sole completed film, Gabriel (1976), in conversation with an intimate selection of her abstract paintings. A screening room and adjoining gallery of paintings creates an immersive, meditative environment that highlights the relationship between Martin’s work and her conception of joy. “I thought my movie was going to be about happiness,” Martin commented on the production of the film, “but when I saw it finished, it turned out to be about joy–the same thing my paintings are about.” The exhibition will mark the second of the FOCUS series, which encourages sustained contemplation of landmark artworks by artists rooted in the gallery’s program, alongside related selections from their oeuvres. FOCUS: Agnes Martin will be on view through April 13 at Lévy Gorvy 22 Old Bond Street, London. photograph courtesy of the gallery
