Description: Artists of the Abstract Expressionist school rejected the mass cultural values which were being formulated in America at mid-century, searching for alternatives to the consumer and advertising culture prevalent in post-World War II America. AB-EX / RE-CON explores both the best known and less familiar practitioners of abstract and gestural painting who dominated the American art, criticism and commentary during the late 1940s and throughout the 1950s. Included in the exhibition are works by the stars of Abstract Expressionism, among them Richard Diebenkorn, Helen Frankenthaler, Hans Hofmann, Franz Kline, Robert Motherwell and Mark Rothko. AB-EX / RE-CON: Abstract Expressionism Reconsidered also offers viewers the excitement of discovering some of the lesser-known but highly-regarded artists of the movement including Fritz Bultman and Jon Schueler. The exhibition runs through June 16.
