This exhibit will change the way you think about color, based on theorist, Josef Albers, who said that painting is "color acting." Drawn mostly from the MFA’s permanent collection by the museum’s new contemporary art curator, Katherine Pill, the exhibition features works by 24 (mostly American) artists including Davis, Josef Albers, Frank Stella, Joan Mitchell, Helen Frankenthaler and Richard Anuszkiewicz — icons of 20th century art — as well as recent works by Jessica Eaton, Jessica Labatte and Pierre Mabille. As a debut for Pill, as well as some collection works that haven’t been on rotation for a while, if ever, the show is a breezy success — accessible to the most casual of viewers but quietly smart and self-assured. Hours are Mon.-Sat., 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Thurs., 10 a.m.-8 p.m. and Sun., noon-5 p.m.
