In anticipation of the Agnes Martin traveling retrospective, scholars will discuss their research projects, many of which are in progress. Special attention will be given to challenges of (re)constructing an artist's legacy, given that much information about Martin (1912-2004) has not been in circulation, and publications are few. ​Presented by the School of Art and Design History and Theory (http://www.newschool.edu/parsons/art-...) and the​ School of Art, Media, and Technology (http://www.newschool.edu/parsons/art-...), both part of Parsons The New School for Design (http://www.newschool.edu/parsons).​

Panel participants include:

• Tiffany Bell (editor at Artifex Press, and co-curator of the Agnes Martin retrospective), who will speak about her work as editor of Martin's digital catalogue raisonné

• Roger Cook (Royal Academy Schools,London), who will speak on his article theorizing Martin's sexuality in relation to her artwork, "Doorknob in the Desert: Agnes Martin's Queer Becoming"

• Suzanne Hudson (University of Southern California), who will speak about her book on Martin's painting Night Sea, which is part of the MIT Press series of books on one work of art

• Nancy Princenthal (School of Visual Arts, former senior editor for Art in America), who will speak about her forthcoming book, Agnes Martin: Her Life and Art, the first Agnes Martin biography/monograph

The conversation will be moderated by artist Karen Schiff, who has reviewed books on Agnes Martin for Art Journal and Art in America. Her "Agnes Martin Obituary Project" has been exhibited in New York and in Marfa, Texas, and is online at Art Journal.
