Vija Celmins
To Fix the Image in Memory

December 15, 2018–March 31, 2019
Floor 4

For more than five decades, Vija Celmins has been creating subtle, exquisitely detailed renderings of the physical world — including oceans, desert floors, and night skies. Distilling vast, expansive distances into mesmerizing small-scale artworks, these “redescriptions” are a way to understand human consciousness in relation to lived experience. One of the few women to be recognized as a significant artist in 1960s Los Angeles, Celmins relocated to New York City in 1981, where she continues to live and work. Vija Celmins: To Fix the Image in Memory features approximately 140 artworks, including paintings, drawings, and 3-D works. A global debut, this is the first Celmins retrospective in North America in more than twenty-five years.
