Explore Abstract Expressionism’s innovative painting techniques and the impact of these studio practices on the traditional genre of easel painting. How did painting transform itself in the 1940s and 1950s in New York, and how did this transformation affect artists in the decades that followed?

Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with collections and special exhibitions.

Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free for members and Museum admission ticket holders. No registration is required.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
