The Frank Stella ‘Connections’ exhibit is a tribute to the legendary artist; however, it is also a chance for avid fans to dissect the work of an icon.

The Frank Stella ‘Connections’ exhibit aims at deconstructing the artist's more recent work, and attempting to put them within the context of his earlier pieces. When Frank Stella was first making a name for himself, he was interested in space, surface and minimalism (and by looking at his recent stuff, it seems like he is still interested). As he became a more accomplished, Stella broke away from the techniques that made him an international icon. The exhibit reveals the artist’s long-standing relationship with visual language and how his interest -- and leadership -- in the Minimalist movement has developed over the past 50 years.
