The first US exhibition in 20 years to rethink abstract expressionism and its surrounding movements, Action/Abstraction: Pollock, de Kooning, and American Art, 1940-1976 is up at the Jewish Museum in New York until September 21. The works of 32 artists are presented and viewed from the perspective of rival art critics, the artists and popular culture. This attempt to fuse a variety of thought points is an excellent review of the material and a nuanced approach to understanding the full impact of artmovements.
