    The Cy Twombly gallery at The Menil Collection, Houston, Texas.

    A collaboration between the Menil Collection, the Dia Foundation, and the artist himself, the Cy Twombly Gallery reflects not only the de Menil family’s commitment to working with key contemporary artists, but also to a standard of presentation that provides visitors an intimate, unmediated experience of an artist’s work. The works on view in the Cy Twombly Gallery comprise a veritable retrospective of the artist’s career that includes a number of large canvases, sculptural works, and suites of paintings and drawings.

     

  8. Richmond Hall at The Menil Collection, Houston.  

    In 1990 Dominique de Menil approached the Minimalist sculptor Dan Flavin to create a permanent, site-specific installation at Richmond Hall, then an annex exhibition space. Just two days before his death in November 1996 Flavin completed the design for the space. The artist’s studio completed the work.

    Koloman Moser: Designing Modern Vienna, 1897–1907

    The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

    The MFAH presents the first museum retrospective in the United States devoted to Austrian artist and designer Koloman Moser. Instrumental in the modern design revolution that swept Vienna at the turn of the 20th century, Moser (1868–1918) worked across varied types of media, in both two and three dimensions. His art is often characterized by precise geometric styles and frequently uses a black-and-white grid pattern.

    Koloman Moser: Designing Modern Vienna, 1897–1907 surveys the sum of Moser’s decorative-arts career through more than 200 objects, from jewelry, metalwork, glass, and ceramics to furniture, textiles, prints, and designs for architectural interiors. The exhibition comes to Houston following its premiere at the Neue Galerie in New York City.
