Film Screening: Pollock At The San Diego Museum Of ArtSee + Do Featuring an Academy Award–winning turn by Marcia Gay Harden as Lee Krasner
Featuring an Academy Award–winning turn by Marcia Gay Harden as Lee Krasner, whose work is featured in the Museum’s current exhibition “Abstract Revolution,” Pollock depicts the tumultuous relationship between Krasner and Jackson Pollock as they blazed new paths in Abstract Expressionism in the 1950s.
A long-time passion project of first-time director Ed Harris (who stars as Pollock), the film does not shy away from depicting the demons that followed the artist throughout his life. “Pollock” is notable too for its compassionate depiction of Krasner, whose significant artistic achievements and legacy are to this day overshadowed by her role as Pollock’s wife. 2000, Rated R, 122 min.
See you there!
