"That’s the goal: happiness.”
Beloved painter Agnes Martin enters a theatre. A play is written for her about a meeting with her younger self, a girl aching to go towards something new. Beauty. Truth. Innocence. The voices in her head lead her to paint. Her search for happiness takes Agnes on a journey from Macklin, Saskatchewan to MoMA of New York and the mesas of Taos, New Mexico. Her storied life is nearly over, and just about to begin.
Presented in conjunction with AGNES MARTIN: RETROSPECTIVE, a visual art and multi-media exhibit in The Roxy’s Miller Art Gallery.
