Illustrated Lecture: "Becoming Agnes Martin"


Location: Annenberg Auditorium

After a decade in New York, and seemingly at the height of her career, Agnes Martin left the city in September 1967. She traveled for two years before settling on a remote New Mexican mesa, building a house by hand, and living in relative if by no means total isolation for the remainder of her long years. She made no art until 1973, when she completed a monumental screenprint suite; it was only then that she erected a studio and, shortly thereafter, got back to painting. She also began constructing in earnest the persona of “Agnes Martin” that we have received as something like historical truth. In this talk, I instead frame Martin’s becoming Martin in the 1970s as a willful, even calculated, act of self-fashioning that included the creation and destruction of paintings and extended to the issuance of writings and gnomic statements about beauty, studio work, and abstract emotion. I further ask what this achieved and suggest how it might become a model through which to think issues of writing, curating, and narrating the subjects of art history who served, firstly and emphatically, as their own primary interpreters.
