As the latest installment of our ongoing tribute to the painters who worked and taught in the Hawthorne Barn when it was an art school, Polednik and Wilkin, both contributors to the recent catalogue raisonné of Hans Hofmann's paintings, will discuss and present images from Hans Hofmann: Works on Paper, an exhibit they curated for MOCA Jacksonville in Florida. In collaborating on this show, which will travel to the Portland Museum of Art in Maine this summer, Polednik, director of the Milwaukee Art Museum and former director of MOCA Jacksonville, and Wilkin, a New York-based independent curator, critic, and scholar of 20th-century modernism, have succeeded in illuminating the robust beauty of the abstract expressionist's drawings and watercolors.
