Abstract Expressionism, as shown in its title, is a seemingly obvious exhibition currently on view at the Denver Art Museum. What sets this apart from others are the lesser known names added to the roster of popular and predominantly male standards; and in itself draws a line towards the recently opened exhibition at the museum titled Women of Abstract Expressionism. The forthright title is both exciting and refreshing, informing us of a show that highlights some of the important female figures who were overlooked in this historically male-led movement. Women of Abstract Expressionism is on view through September 25, 2016. Abstraction Expressionism is on view through June 4, 2017.
