EXHIBITIONS 

featuring Exploring Alchemy: Jackson Pollock

 At the Guggenheim NYC through September 6, 2017 Jackson Pollock’s Alchemy (1947), a celebrated icon of postwar abstraction that Peggy Guggenheim acquired through her financial support of the artist, is on view for the first time in the United States since 1969.  This didactic exhibition on one of Pollock’s earliest poured paintings draws visitors into the world of an art conservator, allowing them to comprehend the physical properties of the materials the artist used to create Alchemy and how he applied them to the canvas.
