Frank Bowling included in ‘Epic Abstraction: Pollock to Herrera’ at The Met Museum

January 8, 2019

Hales Gallery is delighted to announce the inclusion of Frank Bowling’s painting Night Journey, 1968-1969 in Epic Abstraction: Pollock to Herrera, a long-term display of nearly 60 works drawn mostly from the Met’s permanent collection. Epic Abstraction: Pollock to Herrera begins in the 1940s and extends into the 21st century to explore large-scale abstract painting, sculpture, and assemblage.

 

“The Met’s great holdings of post-war art include some of the most celebrated examples of Abstract Expressionism. This exhibition is an important reinterpretation of a core area of the Museum’s collection as it expands beyond the familiar to include fresh and perhaps surprising perspectives of artists who have adopted, adapted, and even critiqued the precedents established by the well-known New York school,” said Max Hollein, Director of the Museum. “These monumental works also offer a powerful—even mesmerizing—experience.”

 

Epic Abstraction: Pollock to Herrera is curated by Randall Griffey, Curator in the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Met.
