Please join us for “The Women of Abstract Expressionism”, a Lecture by Lacy Davisson which presents an in-depth look at the work of Helen Frankenthaler, Elaine de Kooning, Lee Krasner, and Joan Mitchell. These four artists were among the better-known women Abstract Expressionists and contributed outstanding innovation and experimentation to their creative process. Each one presents a different approach and singular vocabulary within their gestural paintings.
Abstract Expressionism, as the first internationally-influential American art movement, is primarily identified with artists such as Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, and Mark Rothko. However, there were many women artists working with them who have not been a major part of the art historical conversation.
This talk offers an opportunity to expand what you know about Abstract Expressionism and the women who exhibited alongside the men. The recent exhibition on this subject at the Denver Art Museum has shed new light on the outpouring of excellent-quality relevant work by women of this era.
Lacy Davisson has lectured on modern and contemporary art for the Guggenheim Museum, Christie’s International Auction House, the Society of the Four Arts, Palm Beach, New York University’s Graduate Visual Arts Administrative Program, and the New York Academy of Art.
