Forrest Bess: Seeing Things Invisible
Forrest Bess: Seeing Things Invisible pairs Bess’s paintings, dating from 1946 to 1970, with an installation of archival materials curated by sculptor Robert Gober, titled The Man That Got Away, which illuminates Bess’s art and life. The exhibition of this piece at the 2012 Whitney Biennial renewed interest in the magnetic, compelling paintings of Forrest Bess, whose reputation had waned, along with his health, in the 1970s.
