Reel Thursday: Jasper Johns – Ideas in Paint (1989)

Jasper Johns revolutionised the American scene and became a forerunner of Pop Art and Minimalism. Rounding up his working methods, aims and career, the film by Rick Tejada-Flores features curators, critics and people from his entourage including John Cage, Merce Cunningham and Leo Castelli.


Reel Thursdays is a series of eight feature documentaries organised in conjunction with the current exhibition: “Handmade Readymades: Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg & James Rosensquist“.
