Next November, The Dallas Museum of Art will be the one and only American venue to host the “Jackson Pollock: Blind Spots” exhibition. The exhibition is the first one in over three decades to look at Jackson Pollock’s Black Pourings, a series of black enamel and oil paintings created between 1951 and 1953. Although Jackson Pollock was a widely known artist, these specific pieces have gone unexplored for quite some time.
“Blind Spots is the first major exhibition to be curated by Gavin Delahunty, who joined the Dallas Museum of Art as the Hoffman Family Senior Curator of American Art in May. The show was co-organized with Tate Liverpool, where Delahunty previously served as Head of Exhibitions and Displays. Maxwell L. Anderson, the Dallas Museum of Art’s Eugene McDermott Director, said, “‘Jackson Pollock: Blind Spots’ expands the Museum’s growing scholarship on modern and contemporary art by illuminating a crucial period in the creative practice of one of the most influential and provocative artists of the 20th century. We are delighted to bring to new audiences this important and under-examined aspect of Pollock’s work, and look forward to sharing Gavin’s exciting and forward-looking vision for our curatorial program with the public.”
