Exhibition - Pushing Boundaries: American Art After World War II

Wednesday, Jul 31, 2019 at 11:00am

Hofstra University Museum
112 Hofstra University
Hempstead, NY 11549

In the aftermath of World War II, artists in America continued explorations begun earlier in the 20th century, pushing the boundaries of accepted subject matter and artistic form. Drawn from the Museum’s collection, including works by Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, Robert Motherwell, Robert Rauschenberg, Stanley Twardowicz, and Andy Warhol, this exhibition illuminates the great diversity of art in postwar America. Additionally, a selection of paintings by artist/poet and Holocaust survivor Yonia Fain are highlighted.

Funding has been provided by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Exhibition Date: January 29, 2019 - August 16, 2019 

Location: Emily Lowe Gallery, behind Emily Lowe Hall, South Campus
