As we continue to celebrate Robert Motherwell's centennial, the exhibition surveys the importance of the dialogue between black and white in Motherwell's work; a bedrock to the artist's imagery. According to Jack Flam, this dialogue has not only been fundamental for the artist's pictorial structure, but also lies at the heart of his subject matter.

"Black is death, anxiety; white is life, éclat".
(Robert Motherwell, interviewed by Jack Flam, 5/11/1982)
