EXHIBITION | Night Stars: The Aiken Collection
WSU Pullman - Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art

Artworks, like night stars, are seen across time and space—with us yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

The Mary Margaret and Richard Aiken Collection of Late Twentieth Century Works on Paper focuses on American print works created between 1965 and the mid-1990s. Comprised of 24 works by 16 artists, the collection includes artworks by renowned American artists Jennifer Bartlett, Helen Frankenthaler, Robert Rauschenberg, and Frank Stella, with additional works by international artists Francesco Clemente and Kiyoshi Saito. The artworks are bright, bold and expressive, yet artistically diverse, with examples of Abstract Expressionism, Color Field, Pop art, and Minimalism. When originally acquired by the Aikens, these artists were heralded as masters of modern and contemporary art. How then do today’s viewers consider these now-historic works, in many instances three to five decades later? Across time and space they continue to reside with us, constituting a startling range of art-making approaches and visual-culture benchmarks.

“The evolution of human civilization is great; humankind thinks nature is precious, but it is difficult for humankind and nature to coexist. I represented these two souls that cannot understand each other through the images of buildings and mountains.”
