with John Elderfield

Willem de Kooning (1904-1997) was one of the greatest of all American artists –  but, unlike his Abstract Expressionist contemporaries such as Jackson Pollock or Mark Rothko, he constantly changed his style of working. In this informal talk, John Elderfield discusses what de Kooning meant by saying, “you have to change if you are going to remain the same.” Elderfield is Chief Curator Emeritus of Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
