home: event [ Lee Krasner exhibition ]
Seeing art exhibitions can be uplifting and inspiring. Visit the Lee Krasner exhibition, at the Barbican, and get colour inspiration and a pattern feast for the eyes!
30 May – 1 September
Lee Krasner is a key figure in American art, whose energetic works reflect the spirit of possibility in post-war New York.
‘I like a canvas to breathe and be alive. Be alive is the point.’
This exhibition celebrates the work and life of Lee Krasner (1908–1984), a pioneer of Abstract Expressionism. The first major presentation of her work in Europe for more than 50 years, Lee Krasner: Living Colour tells the story of a formidable artist, whose importance has too often been eclipsed by her marriage to Jackson Pollock.
Discover Krasner’s spirit for invention – from striking early self-portraits to her acclaimed ‘Little Image’ paintings from the 1940s, from collages comprised of torn-up earlier work to a selection of her most impressive large-scale abstract paintings. Explore nearly 100 works, many of which are being presented for the first time in the UK.
