Explore the expanding spatial and conceptual terrain of painting after it was first mapped by Jackson Pollock and his contemporaries in the 1940s through today. Clement Greenberg once wrote approvingly that with works like Mural, Pollock was “on the way to destroying” painting. Following World War II, Pollock and other artists continued to develop painting’s potential for transformation and experimentation, thereby offering subsequent generations a less constrained and traditional understanding of the medium.
