Art from the 1960s represents one of the great strengths of the Gregory Allicar Museum of Art at Colorado State University. This exhibition offers an engaging survey of art of the decade, demonstrating both the disruption and the continuity present in the major styles and strategies at play, with late abstract expressionist paintings and Neo-Dada collage giving way to Color Field painting, shaped canvases, Minimalism, Light & Space, kinetic art, Op Art, and Pop, with nods to performance art and land art. Artworks and didactic texts look to exemplify but also complicate the existing history of this dynamic era.
