Arshile Gorky Retrospective Exhibition Opens at MOCA

One of the most significant exhibitions of Arshile Gorky’s work began Sunday at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, which is presenting Arshile Gorky: A Retrospective through September 20 at MOCA Grand Avenue.

This major traveling retrospective celebrates the extraordinary life and work of Gorky, a seminal figure in the movement toward abstraction that transformed American art in the middle of the 20th century.

Arshile Gorky: A Retrospective positions Gorky as a crucial forerunner of abstract expressionism, and as a passionate and dedicated artist whose tragic life often informed his groundbreaking and deeply personal paintings. The first full-scale survey of Gorky’s art since 1981, this exhibition includes more than 120 works spanning the artist’s 25-year career.
