Explore the general shape and time of contemporary art, charting its continuities and breaks with modernism. We rewind to several key moments in the history of modern art to home in on two core impulses – expressionism and abstraction – both of which have long defined non-Western art. Then we jump from Paris to New York to observe how these practices unite in the form of Abstract Expressionism, and in the figure of Jackson Pollock.
