Explosion! Painting as action

Explosion! Painting as action
Moderna Museet in Stockholm
2 June – 9 September 2012

Kazuo Shiraga painted with his feet, suspended by ropes above the canvas, Andy Warhol or his assistants urinated on the canvas, Shozo Shimamoto hurled paint-filled glass bottles at his paintings, and Niki de Saint Phalle fired a rifle at her panels that she had prepared with balloons of paint under layers of plaster. The major exhibition this summer, Explosion, features works by some 50 artists from the late 1940s to today.
