Members see it first! For more than five decades, Vija Celmins has been creating subtle, exquisitely detailed “redescriptions” of the physical world — including oceans, desert floors and night skies — distilling vast, expansive distances into mesmerizing small-scale artworks. Vija Celmins: To Fix the Image in Memory features approximately 140 artworks, including paintings, drawings, and 3-D works. A global debut, this is the first Celmins retrospective in North America in more than twenty-five years.
