The Case for Surrealism | The Art Assignment | PBS Digital Studios

"Surrealism" has become shorthand for the bizarre, the irrational, the hallucinatory. But what IS it? Or what WAS it? Today we delve into the history of Surrealism, as it formed in post-World War I Europe and as it has infiltrated our wider culture up to today. Here's our case for what Surrealism is, and why you should care about it.

Andy Warhol - The Complete Picture

Andy Warhol - The Complete Picture

Mural. Jackson Pollock

En 1943, Jackson Pollock recibe de Peggy Guggenheim el encargo de crear una obra para decorar la entrada de su residencia. Tras enfrentarse a un gran lienzo en blanco, el artista acometió el proyecto y pintó Mural, hoy considerada una de las obras clave de su trayectoria. Desde su génesis hasta la actualidad, este documental recorre la historia de esta monumental obra de Pollock. Para ello, cuenta con la participación del actor y autor Steve Martin; Erika Doss (University of Notre Dame); David Anfam (Senior Consulting Curator del Clyfford Still Museum de Denver y comisario de la exposición 'Mural, Jackson Pollock. La energía hecha visible'); la autora Mary V. Dearborn; Joni L. Kinsey (University of Iowa); Sean O'Harrow (Director of Iowa Museum of Art); Ellen G. Landau (Art Case Western Reserve University); Joyce Summerwill (Founder UIMA Docent Program); Yvonne Szafran (Senior Conservator of Paintings J. Paul Getty Museum); Scott Schaefer (Senior Curator of Paintings J. Paul Getty Museum); James Cuno (President & CEO J. Paul Getty Trust); and Phylip Rylands (Director Peggy Guggenheim Collection).

You’ve heard of Jackson Pollock and know of his infamous “drip paintings,” but what is it that you’re supposed to do when you look at his work today? Why did it cause shockwaves in 1947, and what does it mean now? We explore the life, evolution, and legacy of Jackson Pollock.
