      Abstract Expressionism: A Social Revolution

      Abstract Expressionism: A Social Revolution focuses on the rise of a new generation of artists active in post-World War II America whose works challenged the institutional status-quo and altered the course of art history. The artists in this show, such as Helen Frankenthaler, Willem de Kooning, Robert Motherwell, and Mark Rothko, though never formally associated, are unified by their rejection of academicism and commitment to pushing the boundaries of modern art. These artists, today called Abstract Expressionists, abandoned narrative painting, focusing instead on relationships between color, gesture, and texture.
