Large-Scale Abstract Paintings from the Permanent Collection

January 28 – May 8, 2022
Reception: Saturday, February 19 | 4-6pm

PHOEBE AND BELMONT TOWBIN WING

The exhibition features nine large-scale abstract paintings from the 1950s through the early 1980s, drawn primarily from the WAAM collection. Inspired by Large-Scale Modern Paintings at MoMA in 1947 and Epic Abstraction at The Met Fifth Avenue in 2018, the show looks to the revolutionary spirit in America that emerged after World War II and materialized as Abstract Expressionism in Modern art. Curated by Nicole Goldberg, Executive Director.
