Art History Through Cinema: Jackson Pollock

Class/Workshop, Film

Jackson Pollock's radical abstract paintings are praised as both a genius of Abstract Expressionism and disparaged as a mess of paint on canvas. Yet his influence on the art world cannot be denied. Join us for a look at Pollock's art--its significance and its place among his contemporaries--along with a viewing of the movie Pollock (2000). Afterwards, we'll have an open discussion on the film and our understanding of the artist and his art.
