Pollock's Black Paintings

Michael Fried, art critic, joins Gavin Delahunty, The Hoffman Family Senior Curator of Contemporary Art and curator of Jackson Pollock: Blind Spots, for a conversation about the significance of Pollock's black paintings within his practice. The black paintings, created between 1951 and 1953, showcase Pollock's broader ambitions as an artist and were a radical departure from his previous work.
