Agnes Martin / Navajo Blankets

Text by Nancy Princenthal & Anne Lane Hedlund
Design by Mine Suda

With reproductions and installation views of the 2018 bicoastal exhibition, this catalogue brings together the meditative paintings of Agnes Martin, who spent much of her life in New Mexico, and 19th-century Navajo textiles, which also channel ideals of harmony and balance through abstraction.

A conversation between Martin’s biographer Nancy Princenthal and cultural anthropologist Anne Lane Hedlund considers the connection and elucidates shared sensibilities.

[Agnes Martin] pushed against anything that could be identified as craft. Which speaks to her time and to her being one of the only women of her generation who had a prayer of succeeding in a man’s world.

Martin was committed to absorbing the beauty of the world without subjecting it to intellectual analysis.
