What is the future for abstract painting—following the artistic brilliance of Pablo Picasso, El Lissitzky, and Jackson Pollock, can it continue to lead to breakthroughs and advances in artistic expression? In 1984, Frank Stella, Princeton Class of 1958, began an exploration of these questions. Click here to read more about this exhibition.
