Lee Krasner is among some fifty artists featured in this exhibition, which is drawn entirely from MoMA’s collection. Surveying the period from 1945-1968, it includes works that range from the boldly gestural canvases of Krasner, Helen Frankenthaler, and Joan Mitchell; the radical geometries of Lygia Clark, Lygia Pape, and Gego; and the reductive abstractions of Agnes Martin, Anne Truitt, and Jo Baer; to the fiber weavings of Magdalena Abakanowicz, Sheila Hicks, and Lenore Tawney; and the process-oriented sculptures of Lee Bontecou, Louise Bourgeois, and Eva Hesse.

The exhibition, which will be on view through August 13, will also feature many little-known treasures from MoMA’s holdings, such as collages by Anne Ryan, photographs by Gertrudes Altschul, and recent acquisitions by Ruth Asawa, Carol Rama, and Alma Woodsey Thomas, on view for the first time.



Pollock-Krasner House director at Book Hampton

April 22 at 5 p.m.

Helen A. Harrison, director of the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center, will read from her mystery novel, An Exquisite Corpse: Death in Surrealist New York,” on Saturday, April 22 at 5 p.m. at Book Hampton, 41 Main Street, East Hampton. Copies will be available for sale.

Set in the sexually liberated New York art world of the 1940s, populated by European artists in exile and young Americans itching to take over the avant-garde, Harrison’s tale is an amalgam of truth and invention. That turbulent era’s creative ferment is the backdrop for a desperate crime and its lethal consequences.

The event is free, but registration is requested.


The Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center is closed for the season. 

The museum will re-open on Thursday, May 4 unnamed-190
