23….Saturday Lectures at LHUCA: The Relationship
of Art - Jackson
Pollock and Lee Krasner with Christian Conrad
- Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner are two of the
most important figures in contemporary and American
art. Both artists worked in Abstract Expressionism
and were part of the changing idea of what a modern
painting should be. In addition to being artists,
Pollock and Krasner were married, creating a dynamic
relationship between their art. We will examine
these artists’ turbulent lives and marriage,
as well as their artwork, in a discussion-based
lecture. Join the conversation at Saturdays @
LHUCA as we explore Pollock and Krasner in comparison.
Saturday Lectures at LHUCA are an informal conversation
over the life and work of contemporary artists.
It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine
the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern
art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions
and join the conversation. This event is free
to the public. For more information visit www.lhuca.org.
