A review

Etel Adnan: Light’s New Measure, on view at the Guggenheim Museum, presents four dozen abstract paintings that explore the changing body of form as it is seen through the figure-ground dynamic and experienced through changing perspectives. Adnan’s compositions are mostly small-scale, posing not only an irony but also a curatorial challenge to evenly fill the museum’s expansive walls.
