Five Week Course: Jackson Pollock

Main View © Pollock - Krasner Foundation, Inc.

Jackson Pollock (1912–56) is widely considered to be one of the most influential and provocative American artists of the twentieth century. Pollock famously pioneered action painting, a process that saw him drip paint on canvases resting on the studio floor. Jackson Pollock: Blind Spots is the first exhibition in more than three decades of Pollock’s paintings made between 1951 and 1953, shedding light on a less well known but extremely influential part of his practice and departure from his signature technique.

Join Ed Bruce, Artist and University of Liverpool Continuing Education lecturer, who will lead a five-week course that explores Jackson Pollock's heroic and mythical status as a leading figure of post-war American art. Students will have the opportunity to study the art works in the Jackson Pollock: Blind Spots exhibition, (30 June – 18 October 2015), at Tate Liverpool and to learn more in classroom-based lectures and discussions.
