Action/Abstraction: Pollock, de Kooning, and American Art, 1940-1976 is the first major U.S. exhibition in 20 years to rethink Abstract Expressionism and the movements that followed. Over fifty key works by 32 artists--among them Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Hans Hoffman, Helen Frankenthaler and Mark Rothko--are displayed from the perspectives of rival art critics Clement Greenberg and Harold Rosenberg, both of whom wrote extensively on the New York School.
Action/Abstraction... was jointly organized by the three venues at which it will be on view: The Jewish Museum, New York City (May 4-September 21, 2008); Saint Louis Art Museum, St. Louis, Missouri (October 19, 2008-January 11, 2009); and the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, New York (February 13-May 31, 2009).
To read a full review of Action/Abstraction..., as seen by art critic Beth Gersh-Nesic at the Jewish Museum, please see "Critical Mass: Homage to Clement Greenberg and Harold Rosenberg."
