Abstract Expressionism

A World Elsewhere

Abstract Expressionism: A World Elsewhere, presents a unique opportunity to consider Abstract Expressionism’s distinctiveness and diversity afresh in the twenty-first century.

The catalogue features paintings, sculptures, photographs, and works on paper by such iconic figures as Sam Francis, Franz Kline, Willem de Kooning, Sam Francis, Philip Guston, Franz Kline, Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, Robert Motherwell, Barnett Newman, Jackson Pollock, Ad Reinhardt, Mark Rothko, David Smith and Clyfford Still.

An illuminating essay by curator David Anfam also redresses a balance by including others sometimes considered more peripheral or even outside of the movement – among them, William Baziotes, Harry Callahan, Arshile Gorky, Adolph Gottlieb, Barbara Morgan, Richard Pousette-Dart and Charles Seliger.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition Abstract Expressionism: A World Elsewhere, Haunch of Venison, New York, September – November 2008.
