Map Making

Tonight we’re opening three exhibitions including one featuring paintings by Frank Bowling. Bowling is a Guyanese-born British artist and is widely celebrated for his contributions to the field of abstraction and his advocacy of black artists internationally. Frank Bowling: Map Paintings highlights work Bowling created in the 1970s while living in New York. Discover more about this artist, who at 80 years old is still active in his London studio, in this fantastic look at his life in The Guardian.  See his work tonight for free during Late Night.

Last month, the DMA acquired an impressive work by the Guyanese-born British painter Frank Bowling. The painting, Marcia H Travels, is from Bowling’s influential Map Painting series, which he created in the 1970s. This February, the DMA’s painting, along with four additional Map Painting works from private collections, will be reunited for the first time since their debut in 1971 at the Whitney Museum of American Art in the DMA-organized exhibition Frank Bowling: Map Paintings.
