Artist Brice Marden at Matthew Marks Gallery

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

Artist Brice Marden discusses his exhibition of his new work, “Brice Marden: Letters,” on view at Matthew Marks Gallery through December 23. It’s his first one-person exhibition in New York since his 2006 Museum of Modern Art retrospective. The Letters series was inspired by Chinese calligraphy from the 11th century that Marden saw while visiting Taipei.
