Agnes Martin

The Art Museum at the University of New Mexico hosts Jina Brenneman in a lecture about artist Agnes Martin Tuesday, Nov. 5 at 5:30 p.m. in the Raymond Jonson Gallery. Brenneman has worked as a curator of collection and exhibitions for over 15 years, with a focus on artists working along the Colorado and New Mexico corridor.

Martin was a Canadian born artist who created her first semi-abstract work in Taos, N.M., where she lived from 1954-1957. The piece would go on to influence her future style in art. The lecture focuses on the years Martin moved, studied and worked in Taos and at Columbia University.

Funding for this lecture series is provided in part by the Department of Art and Art History and by the Allene H. and Walter P. Kleweno Lecture Series Fund. The lecture is planned in conjunction with the new “Agnes Martin: The Early Years 1947-1957” exhibition.
