The Frank Stella painting, Averroes (1960), from the Philip Johnson Glass House permanent collection is currently on view as part of the exhibition Frank Stella: Black, Aluminum, and Copper Paintings at L&M Arts gallery in New York.

Art critic Roberta Smith of the New York Times recently described the exhibition in her review Laying the Tracks Others Followed, Frank Stella’s Early Work at L&M Arts:

It features 13 of the adamant, quietly pulsing, exceedingly frontal paintings that Mr. Stella made in New York in the three and a half years after he arrived here in the summer of 1958, fresh out of Princeton.

This amounts to more early Stellas than have been exhibited in New York since the survey of his work at the Museum of Modern Art in 1970. They provide a heady sense of the first few fastest-moving years of his development, when he helped bring the Abstract Expressionist chapter of New York School painting to a close and lay the foundation for Minimalism.

Smith goes on to describe Stella’s Aluminum series, including Averroes:

The Glass House + Dine with Design on the New York Times T Magazine Blog

Dine with Design

.

The upcoming Glass House event, Dine with Design, featuring A Modern Picnic and the Food Film FestivalTM  is featured on the New York Times T Magazine blog!

.

Some films uncover longings you didn’t know were in you — to move to Paris, to drive stick, to forgive your parents. Other films are more direct: movies about food usually make you want to eat.

The Food Film Festival, which will next be held on June 9 at the Glass House, Philip Johnson’s midcentury masterpiece in New Canaan, Conn., makes it easy for you. . .

This installment of the Food Film Festival is part of the second annual Dine With Design, an event that benefits the Glass House. The day starts with the Modern Picnic, a three-hour lunch on the Glass House grounds with dishes prepared by six culinary stars, including the James Beard Award winners Gabriel Rucker (of Le Pigeon in Portland, Ore.) and Missy Robbins (of A Voce in New York City).

New Glass House Conversation Hosted by Kimberli Meyer of the MAK Center for Art and Architecture

Kimberli Meyer

Kimberli Meyer

Join a new online Glass House Conversation hosted by Kimberli Meyer, Director of the MAK Center for Art and Architecture, Los Angeles, at the Schindler House.

A relentless torrent of discourse, high and low, has come to dominate contemporary life. Yet we willingly add more. Why does our chatter matter? Are we invested in the exchange of ideas, do we feel pressured to participate to keep from getting lost in the crowd, or is there something else going on?
Where does substance and self-promotion stop and start?

Why are we having this conversation?

Join the discussion, going on now at Glasshouseconversations.org!

Join the Discussion! Hannia Gómez Hosts a Glass House Conversation

Hannia Gómez - Plaza de los Museos, CaracasJoin us for this week’s online Glass House Conversation hosted by Hannia Gómez, President of Fundacion de la Memoria Urbana, founder and vice president of Docomomo Venezuela, and former curator of Gio Ponti’s Villa Planchart, a modern home in Caracas, Venezuela:

The recently restored Tugendhat House by Mies van der Rohe has just reopened to the public. In the words of Jean-Louis Cohen in The Wall Street Journal, the House’s restoration “has benefited from a new approach to preserving Modernist buildings”, and now “a new generation of experts takes an “archaeological” view, yielding superb results.” The Tugendhat House recovered “its grand atmosphere from the 1930s”.

Having worked for many years as curator of Gio Ponti’s Villa Planchart in Caracas (1957), I witnessed a totally different – much slower, less scientific, but very successful – preservation process. Similarly perfect results were achieved through years of intuition and passion for architecture.

How will the latest trend in preservation process and interest in Modernist buildings impact the threatened/saved Modern heritage of the world?
