Over the summer, The Escalette Permanent Art Collection Director, Fiona Shen and Museum Registrar, Jessica Bocinski, traveled to Denmark to visit the Copenhagen Contemporary, where one of the most well-known paintings in the Escalette Collection is on loan, Untitled by Mary Corse.
The Mary Corse painting is currently on display as part of their “Light & Space” exhibition which opened in December 2021. This comprehensive exhibition explores the American Light and Space movement that emerged in Los Angeles 1960s and the ways it inspired generations of artists and architects. Part of this exhibition will also focus on the contributions of women artists to the Light and Space Movement, whose work is often less recognized. This will be the largest exhibition to date at Copenhagen Contemporary.
