Epic Abstraction: Pollock to Herrera will begin in the 1940s and extend into the twenty-first century to explore large-scale abstract painting, sculpture, and assemblage through more than fifty works from The Met collection, a selection of loans, and promised gifts and new acquisitions. Iconic works from The Met collection, such as Jackson Pollock's classic "drip" painting Autumn Rhythm (1950) and Louise Nevelson's monumental Mrs. N's Palace (1964–77), will be shown in conversation with works by international artists, such as Japanese painter Kazuo Shiraga and the Hungarian artist Ilona Keserü.
Jane Greenwood, Architect and Principal of Kostow Greenwood Architects, Sarah Nunberg, Conservator and Principal of The Objects Conservation Studio and Pastor Jared R. Stahler offer insight on the process of restoring the masterpiece known as the Nevelson Chapel.
You are invited to join this conversation at the intersection of art and architecture, past and present—a salon inspired by Louise Nevelson's masterwork, Chapel of the Good Shepherd.
Drawn entirely from the Whitney’s collection, this exhibition follows her work in drawing, printing, and collage, from her early focus on the human body through her progression into abstraction.
Dr. Laurie Wilson's considers women in Nevelson's life — from her mother to her dealers to her assistants — and their relationship to Nevelson's creative genius and its Fourth Dimension spirituality. Opportunity for guided meditations in Nevelson's Chapel of the Good Shepherd before and after.
