Join us for the opening day of An Art of Changes, which follows Jasper Johns (American, born 1930) through the years as he revises and recycles key motifs, including the American flag, numerals, and the English alphabet, which he describes as “things the mind already knows.” Organized in four thematic sections, some works explore the artist’s tools, materials, and techniques. Others delve into signature aspects of his distinctive mark-making, including flagstones and hatch marks, while later pieces teem with autobiographical imagery.
