"Pollock after Orozco/Orozco after Pollock"
Michael Leja, Professor of American Art, University of Pennsylvania
Professor Leja will consider how Orozco influenced Pollock and how we see Orozco differently as a result of Pollock's work. Professor Leja is the author of the ground-breaking study Reframing Abstract Expressionism: Subjectivity and Painting in the 1940s (1993) and the introductory essay for the recently published volume of Jackson Pollock's correspondence, titled American Letters: 1927–1947 (2011).
This event is made possible through the generous support of the Members of the Hood Museum of Art.
