Rome Exhibition Pollock And The New York School

Dates: 10.10.18 - 24.02.19. Address: Complesso del Vittoriano, Via di San Pietro in Carcere, 00186 Rome, Italy.

Paul Jackson Pollock was an American painter and a major figure in the abstract expressionist movement. He was well known for his unique style of drip painting. During his lifetime, Pollock enjoyed considerable fame and notoriety; he was a major artist of his generation. The New York School was an informal group of American poets, painters, dancers, and musicians active in the 1950s and 1960s in New York City, which also included Pollock. They often drew inspiration from surrealism and the contemporary avant-garde art movements, in particular 'action painting'. The 'Pollock And The New York School' exhibition in Rome is dedicated to the American Abstract Expressionist painter, as well as other members of the New York School, such as Willem de Kooning and Franz Kline. The exhibition is being held at the Complesso del Vittoriano until the 24th February (2019) and comprises around 50 works including Pollock's 3-metre long 'Number 27'. Anti-conformism, psychological introspection and experimentation are the three guidelines that accompany the visitor to the exhibition, which has been produced and organised by the Arthemisia Group and curated by Luca Beatrice.
