Nearly 60 years since the last major collective survey in the UK of the Abstract Expressionism movement, an esteemed panel of artists come together to reevaluate this artistic phenomenon.
They discuss their personal responses to Abstract Expressionism and how the new approaches to composition, colour and scale influenced and impacted on the visual arts both then and now. Examining how artists and the arts world internationally responded to Abstract Expressionism, they consider the significance of this influential movement of the 20th century and why its impact still resounds today.
