Frank Stella Q&A in Modern Painters

In the 55 years since his debut at 
Leo Castelli Gallery, Frank Stella has led the conversation about contemporary painting countless times. On October 30, the Whitney Museum of American
 Art charts his nonpareil career with 
a retrospective that will take over the museum’s entire fifth floor. A solo exhibition of work from several important series 
is also on view at Paul Kasmin Gallery 
in New York through October 10. Modern Painters contributing editor Hunter Braithwaite met with the artist at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass, Colorado—where he was receiving the National Artist Award this summer—to discuss his long career in surprisingly no-nonsense terms.
