Frank Stella’s Retrospective Rules

The new exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art is a hit on Instagram.

Seventy-nine-year-old artist Frank Stella created much of his work before there was a computer in every house, let alone a cell phone in every pocket. But a new retrospective of his multi-colored, minimalist paintings and sculptures at the Whitney Museum seems tailor-made for the digital age. Patrons of the museum, including jewelry designer Eddie Borgo, just can’t stop posing with his work, and posting it on their Instagram feeds.
