Jackson Pollock famously made One: Number 31 (1950) by placing the canvas on the floor, even though he intended the work be displayed with the canvas hung on the wall. In this session, we simulate Pollock’s working experience in an attempt to understand his revolutionary technique, and to see a Pollock the way Jackson Pollock did.
