Lee Krasner & others @ Whitechapel Gallery

9 February 2023 - 7 May 2023

This exhibition, “Action, Gesture, Paint: Women Artists and Global Abstraction 1940-1970, celebrates the practices of the numerous international women artists working with gestural abstraction in the aftermath of the Second World War.

It features well-known artists associated with the Abstract Expressionism movement, including American artists Lee Krasner (1908-1984) and Helen Frankenthaler (1928-2011); alongside lesser-known figures such as Mozambican-Italian artist Bertina Lopes (1924-2012) and South Korean artist Wook-kyung Choi (1940-1985). More than half of the works have never before been on public display in the UK.
