Rebecca Morris:2001-2022 is a 21-year survey of Los Angeles-based painter Rebecca Morris (b. Honolulu, HI; based in Los Angeles, CA), an artist known for her large-scale paintings and inventive approach to composition, color, and gesture. Her first major museum survey since 2005, the exhibition is an examination of the artist’s innumerable contributions to the field of painting and contemporary art. With a marked commitment to experimentation and abstraction, Morris has become one of the most formidable and inventive painters working today.  With 28 works, the exhibition provides audiences with an opportunity to see the artist’s progression of style through work produced after 2000. The exhibition also marks Morris’s return to the MCA, who previously exhibited in West by Midwest in 2018 and Figures in the Field: Figurative Sculpture and Abstract Painting from Chicago Collections in 2006.  

Rebecca Morris: 2001-2022 is organized by Jamillah James, Manilow Senior Curator.
