Ree Morton: Retrospective 1971-1977 is a marked deviation from the Museum’s stated policy of showing the work of lesser-known, living artists. Ree Morton’s tragic death, in the spring on 1977, cut short an important and influential career. Although making art for only 10 years, she left us with a substantial body of work spanning broad and diverse means of expression, work that has added immeasurably to the esthetic heritage of our generation. Her intensely personal explorations and inquiries extend to a wide spectrum of universal human idea and concerns. Irreverent of traditional art categories, Morton ignored the boundaries between painting, sculpture and mixed media installation, exploring instead realms of emotion, myth and drama.
