This exhibition, which inaugurates a series of newly opened galleries on the Museum’s second floor, surveys the widespread impulse toward geometric abstraction in modern and contemporary art. Artists representing various movements and geographical backgrounds are featured: Cubist, Dada, and Russian avant-garde artists of the 1910s and 1920s; artists associated with Minimalism, Op art, and hard-edge abstraction in the 1960s and 1970s; and contemporary artists who continue to exploit the infinite potential of simple geometries.
