Jackson Pollock: Blind Spots

傑克遜·波洛克:盲點


This summer Tate Liverpool presents the first exhibition in more than three decades to survey the late paintings of Jackson Pollock (1912-1956), made between 1951 and 1953; a phase of work referred to as his black pourings and a highly influential part of his career.

Jackson Pollock is widely considered one of the most important and provocative American artists of the twentieth century, whose work has made an immense contribution to abstract art. Pollock famously pioneered ‘action painting’ – a process that saw him dripping paint on canvases laid flat on the studio floor. Jackson Pollock: Blind Spots focuses on the latter part of the artist’s career, shedding light on a less known but extremely significant part of his body of work. 

Jackson Pollock: Blind Spots will introduce audiences to the artist’s practice via a selection of his important drip paintings made between 1947-50 including Summertime: Number 9A 1948 (Tate) and Number 3, 1949: Tiger 1949 (Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden). Exhibiting works from the height of the artist’s fame set against his lesser known paintings will serve to demonstrate the radical departure represented by the black pourings. The exhibition offers the opportunity to appreciate Pollock’s broader ambitions as an artist and makes these fascinating later paintings readable as ‘blind spots’ in an otherwise intensely debated career.

今年夏天,泰特利物浦美術館將舉辦傑克遜·波洛克的個人展覽,這也是近30多年來首次關於波洛克晚期作品的大型回顧展覽,展覽展示了其1951至1953年的藝術創作,這一時期波洛克致力於使用黑色“澆注”的創作手法,同時對其藝術生涯來說,這也被認為是非常重要的一個時期。

傑克遜·波洛克被廣泛譽為20世紀最為重要,且最具挑釁性的美國藝術家之一,他的藝術實踐為抽象藝術的發展做出了不可磨滅的貢獻。波洛克以其開創的“行動繪畫”聞名於世,他以將畫布平展于工作室的地面之上,然後將油漆滴落其上的方式進行創作。《傑克遜·波洛克:盲點》聚焦于藝術家創作生涯的最後階段──不為人熟知但卻是其藝術生涯中極其重要的一個時期。

《傑克遜·波洛克:盲點》選擇了一些波洛克於1947﹣1950年之間創作的非常重要的“滴畫”作品來為觀眾展示這位藝術家的創作實踐,比如1948年的《夏日時光:編號9A(Summertime: Number 9A)》和1949年的《編號3,1949:老虎(Number 3, 1949: Tiger )》。展覽中的作品既包括了具有其標誌性風格的作品,同時也涵蓋了很多波洛克不為人所知的藝術創作,這些作品都揭示出波洛克的創作風格在其職業生涯的後期發生了巨大的變化。此次的展覽為觀眾們提供了一個絕好的機會來了解波洛克的藝術創造,通過他藝術生涯最後階段的這些作品,我們能更清晰地理解藝術家宏偉的創作意圖,同時在更深的層面上去欣賞這位備受爭議的藝術家在其職業生涯中的“盲點”時期所創作的傑出作品。
