Into the New - Being Human: From Pollock to Bourgeois

6 April - 17 July 2022
Städel Museum

American post-1945 art is as unconventional as it is diverse. Starting in the 1960s, artists looked especially to printmaking in their search for new paths – a development that went down in history as the Graphic Boom or Graphic Revolution. The Städel Museum has been collecting contemporary American art on paper since that time. Thanks to ongoing support from the Heinz und Gisela Friederichs-Stiftung as well as the Städelscher Museums-Verein e.V., the holdings today encompass outstanding works by well-known artists from Jackson Pollock to Louise Bourgeois. From 6 April to 17 July 2022, the Städel Museum is presenting a selection of some 50 prints, drawings, and multiples from this rich collection. The examples on view testify to how artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Chuck Close, Jim Dine, Jasper Johns, Bruce Nauman, Jackson Pollock, Larry Rivers, Kiki Smith, Kara Walker, and many others developed artistic strategies to negotiate human existence, also their own.
