Exhibition: “Advanced and Irascible”

Exhibitions, Visual Arts

The "Advanced and Irascible" exhibition showcases Jeanne and Carroll Berry’s efforts to gather one work by each of the so-called “Irascible” painters of abstract expressionism. The Irascibles earned their nickname after sending a signed, open letter to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to protest the lack of what they called “advanced” art in its exhibition of contemporary artists in 1950. A photograph of them that appeared in Life Magazine in 1951 became the defining image of the abstract expressionists for the remainder of the 20th century. This exhibition will feature works by, among others, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Adolph Gottlieb, Willem de Kooning, Hedda Sterne and Ad Reinhardt.
