Destroy the Picture: Painting the Void, 1949-1962

October 4, 2012 @ 12:00 AM - January 14, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

Many artists in the immediate aftermath of WWII channeled the pain and destruction they experienced into their work, but not in the conventional sense. This exhibition features more than 85 works from 26 artists hailing from Europe, Asia, and the U.S., who decided to “destroy the picture” by ripping, burning, cutting, and affixing objects to a traditionally two-dimensional canvas, literally bringing their emotions to the canvas. More Information.
