Reel Thursday: Pollock (2000)

In August of 1949, Life Magazine ran a banner headline that begged the question: “Jackson Pollock: Is he the greatest living painter in the United States?”

 

Both directed by and starring Ed Harris in the title role, Pollock examines the famous artist from his early roots in the New York art scene, his quick rise to international stardom and his subsequent, self-inflicted downfall.

 

Reel Thursday is a series of films organised in conjunction with the current exhibition, “Jason Martin: Meta physical”. Free admission. RSVP: Facebook | Email
