Julie Rodrigues Widholm on Lines of Thought

Join BAMPFA director Julie Rodrigues Widholm, who organized Lines of Thought, for an engaging tour of the exhibition, including insights into her curatorial thinking. The exhibition takes a fresh look at gestural abstraction, a foundational strength of the museum’s collection, with artworks from the 1950s to the present—some shown for the first time, others for the first time in decades–expanding the genre with new materials, subjects, and identities. Among the works Rodrigues Widholm will discuss are Hans Hofmann’s The Clash, Helen Frankenthaler’s Before the Caves, Oliver Jackson’s Painting (6.4.83), and Wu Jian’an’s 500 Brushstrokes #63.
