"Robert Kipniss: Shades of Nature"

May 31 - November 7, 2023

The Artist Book Foundation
1327 MASS MoCA Way

Building 13, second floor

North Adams, MA 01247


This focused exhibition offers rarely seen bookends of Robert Kipniss's oeuvre: that of the young poet and painter of the 1950s and '60s finding his feet, contrasted with late career works of the highly decorated visual artist of the 1990s onward. This critical phase of his career is examined in depth with insight and care in Robert Kipniss: Paintings and Poetry, 1950-1964, published ten years ago by The Artist Book Foundation. Early drawings and paintings in this exhibition coincide with the period examined in that book. Preview the exhibition here.
