We had a chance to meet with Douglas Dreishpoon at the Albright-Knox for a sneak peak at the new Action Abstraction exhibition he is overseeing at the gallery. It is rare to see art as it is being taken out of crates and mounted, but that's exactly what we experienced when we showed up to talk about this amazing collection of works from Pollock, de Kooning, and other American artists, which will be on display starting next week. The exhibit moves forward in time, tracking the criticism of Clement Greenberg and Harold Rosenberg—who each man supported, who each man did not support, how their opinions evolved and informed one another and the artists they wrote about.
