“I and the Village:” Jackson Pollock’s Downtown Years, A Lecture by Larissa Bailiff

Jackson Pollock moved to New York by 1930, embracing the bohemian urbanity and camaraderie of the Village. It was in this community that he found the courage and inspiration to formulate a completely new type of American art. Independent Art Historian and MoMA lecturer Larissa Bailiff will discuss Jackson Pollock’s years in the Downtown scene.

Join us as we visit a bygone era of cold-water lofts, makeshift galleries, cheap diners, and of course the Cedar Tavern, the watering hole where artists congregated, argued, and expounded their ideas, where Abstract Expressionism was born, with Jackson Pollock as one of its most celebrated figures.
