Staging Jackson Pollock

Whitechapel Gallery, 77-82 Whitechapel High Street

Jackson Pollock‘s painting Summertime 9A (1948) premiered in the UK in the 1958 at the Whitechapel Gallery, in a traveling show. After six decades, the painting returns to be exhibited at the same location: for the occasion, architect Trevor Dannatt (b. 1920, UK) has been invited to design the exhibition. His intervention has transformed the spaces of the gallery into a white cube, with freestanding breezeblock walls, black panels, footlights, and an undulating ceiling of suspended fabric to re-stage properly Pollock’s masterpiece.

Staging Jackson Pollock also includes rare archival material and an exclusive recent interview with Dannatt, to revisit how the show was organised.
