Jackson Pollock’s Mural: <EM>Energy Made Visible</EM>, 1943
Jackson Pollock’s Mural: Energy Made Visible, 1943
Jackson Pollock’s Mural: Energy Made Visible.
VENICE, ITALY  •  Peggy Guggenheim Collection  •  23 April - 16 November 2015
This touring exhibition focuses on Jackson Pollock’s Mural (1943, University of Iowa Museum of Art, Iowa City), following its 18-month campaign of conservation and cleaning at the Getty Conservation Institute, Los Angeles. The immensely dynamic Mural is the largest painting Pollock created and it has exerted a seismic impact on American art down to the present day. Commissioned in the summer of 1943 by Peggy Guggenheim for her New York townhouse, Mural established a new sense of scale and audacity for the Abstract Expressionist movement, anticipating the classic “poured” abstractions that Pollock would begin four years later. Setting Mural into context, the selection includes Pollock’s newly-restored Alchemy, as well as works by the artist’s wife Lee Krasner, David Smith, and Robert Motherwell.

The exhibition will travel to the Deutsche Bank Kunsthalle, Berlin, and then to the Museo Picasso, Málaga.
