Roseann and Philip L. Perry Gallery, first floor
Beginning in the 1940s, nestled within the drafty lofts and studio apartments of Lower Manhattan, a group of avant-garde artists experimented with painting and sculpture, resulting in the development of a new American art movement. They embraced European avant-gardism and the monumentality of Mexican muralism, creating work centered on emotional expression, gestural brushwork, materiality, color, and scale.
This exhibition was organized by Assistant Curator of Exhibitions Christian Wurst.
Exhibition support is provided by Ameritas, D F Dillon Foundation, Roseann and Phil Perry, and Rhonda Seacrest.
