Time Out says

During the 1960s and ’70s, a group of painters began to use bold, saturated hues, employing what was then a new medium: acrylic pigment. Colorfield, hard-edged abstraction and Op Art were among the genres that emerged as a result, along with a neo-Fauvist approach to figurative Expressionism, whose adherents notably included a number women and African-Americans exploring gender and race in their work. Drawn on the Whitney’s collection, this show re-visits this colorful era in postmodern art.
