Jackson Pollock: A Centennial Retrospective

Jackson Pollock: A Centennial Retrospective

There are few 20th century artists as divisive as Jackson Pollock. It's been over five decades since the visionary, volatile painter met his demise, perishing in an alcohol-fueled car crash at the age of 44, but his abstract expressionist endgame – particularly the 'drip paintings' created between 1947 and 1950 – still polarises critical opinion. This centennial exhibition (Pollock's first major retrospective in Japan, surprisingly) collects 70 works from throughout his career, including major pieces on loan from MOMA and the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art.
