The long-overlooked pioneer from the 1960s’ Light and Space movement is having quite the moment. Following a showing at Lisson Gallery in London and a newly opened room at Dia:Beacon dedicated to her work, the Whitney turns its spotlight on the artist for her first solo museum survey. Bringing together her critical bodies of work, the show collects her early shaped canvases and sculptures, her breakthrough White Light paintings, and her Black Earth series from the seventies.
