GenPEM Tour of Hans Hofmann: The Nature of Abstraction

Tuesday, December 12, 2019 from 6-6:45 pm

Join Lydia Gordon, PEM's Associate Curator of Exhibitions and Research, as she traces Hans Hofmann's painterly journey and leap into full abstraction. Learn how this artist and teacher was a key link between the European avant-garde and the emergence of abstract expressionism in the United States, and discover how the coast of Massachusetts made a deep impact on the development of American modern art.

Afterwards, continue the conversation at an informal GenPEM Listening Round at Ledger where you can purchase a colorful cocktail!
