Perplexed by contemporary art? Jonathan Ribner is your guide through the bewildering profusion of trends that have shaken the art world since 1947 when Jackson Pollock first put canvas on the floor and poured paint directly from the can. Focusing mostly on painting, and supplemented by readings from Painting Beyond Pollock by Morgan Falconer (Phaidon, 2015), this four-session course takes you from Abstract Expressionism to today.
