Asger Jorn & Jackson Pollock: Revolutionary Roads

For the first time the work of two influential 20th century artists Jackson Pollock and Asger Jorn is compared side by side in an exhibition at the Louisiana.

Pollock was a leading figure in America's abstract expressionist movement while the Danish Jorn was a painter, sculptor, ceramic artist, and author, and founding member of the avant-garde movement CoBrA.

Although the two artists were contemporaries of each other, they never met. Both artists were influenced by European avant-gardists, in particular Pablo Picasso, and were inspired by working methods used by the surrealist movement.

This exhibition also focuses on trends in expressionist painting from 1943-1963, the period between the war years and the emergence of Pop Art.

Tues-Fri 11.00-22.00 Sat-Sun 11.00-18.00
