Hurricane | In conversation with Frank Stella

In a show that spans five decades, with work from 1958 to the present day, Haunch of Venison’s retrospective for the artist Frank Stella is a fascinating journey through the latter half of the 20th century and beyond. Here, in a conversation that took place in the gallery itself, Stella talks to Hans Ulrich Obrist about the inspiration he took from the American abstract artists such as Pollock, Hofman and De Kooning, the different stages of his long career, and one of the joys of the very nature of abstraction: the power it has to illuminate, not simply illustrate. Frank Stella: Connections is at Haunch of Venison's Burlington Gardens gallery until November 19 2011. Watch the video.
