Exhibition at Tel Aviv Museum of Art follows the chronological development of Modernism
Peter Halley, The hidden levels.
TEL AVIV.- A display of works from the Tel Aviv Museum's collection that follows the chronological development of modernism and its varied expressions in Europe and the USA in the second half of the 20th century.

Different manifestations of Art Informel that developed in post-war Europe, favored an intuitive approach, spontaneous brushwork and tactile surfaces (Jean Dubuffet, Jean Fautrier and Karel Appel). At the same time, American Abstract Expressionism, inspired by European Surrealist immigrant artists, conceived the canvas as a field of action, with emphasis on the artist's gesture (Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning) or as a field of color that expresses sublime-transcendental themes (Mark Rothko).

A more concise and reductive approach becomes evident during the 1960s in geometric abstraction, Post-Painterly Abstraction and Minimalism, when the components of the work of art—material, form, color, format—became its sole subjects (Morris Louis, Ellsworth Kelly).

Concurrently, a return to dealing with reality evolved—in Europe through the use of readymades in Nouveau Réalisme (Arman, Mimmo Rotella) and in the USA through relating to the mass media in Pop Art (Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein).

The display highlights examples of Conceptual art, in which the ideas underlying the work of art take precedence over traditional aesthetic and material concerns (Joseph Kosuth, Lawrence Weiner).

Also represented are trends of the creative and eclectic pluralism that developed during the 1980s and 1990s and characterizes post/neo-modernism (Frank Stella, Peter Halley).
