For the first time, and in a unique collaboration with the Getty Conservation Institute, Jackson Pollock’s Number 1, 1949—an iconic example of abstract expressionism and a hallmark of MOCA’s permanent collection—will undergo a process of conservation treatment in public view. MOCA Assistant Curator Anna Katz and independent conservator Chris Stavroudis will discuss the nature of Stravoudis’s work, his treatment of Pollock’s painting, and his role in helping museums care for the objects in their collections.
Priority tickets are available to MOCA members one hour before the program. Fifteen minutes before the program begins tickets will be released to non-members. One ticket per person on a first come, first served basis. Early arrival is recommended.
