Join us for an exclusive curator’s introduction of the new Lee Krasner exhibition
Celebrate the American abstract artist's creations in the first major European showing of her work for more than 50 years
What is it?
To mark the opening of this seminal retrospective, Barbican and Time Out are putting on an evening that channels Krasner's New York spirit, including a drinks reception featuring some delicious Manhattan cocktails and a curator introduction, before you enter the exhibition.
'Lee Krasner: Living Colour' tells the story of a formidable artist, whose importance has too often been eclipsed by her marriage to Jackson Pollock. But now, her creations are rightly viewed as a groundbreaking collection of work, and she is seen as a pioneer of abstract expressionism. Discover why she is viewed as such an important figure in the world of contemporary art during an introduction by the show's curator, Eleanor Nairne, before exploring the near 100 pieces that make up the exhibition.
'Lee Krasner: Living Colour' is at the Barbican from May 30 – September 1. Find out more and book your tickets to the exhibition here.
