Baer is regarded as a pioneer of Minimalism and already reached an initial high point in her career in 1975 when the Whitney Museum of American Art mounted a retrospective of her work.
Starting out from a scarcely known core of drawings, which are flanked by major works on canvas, the exhibition concentrates on the artist’s minimalist period from 1960 to 1975 before following on to her current, figurative work. With around 170 works, this will be Baer’s largest overview exhibition to date.
