Co-organized by The Phillips Collection, Washington, D.C., and the Parrish Art Museum, this exhibition reveals a rare cross-cultural artistic dialogue among three prominent artists—American painter Jackson Pollock; Filipino-American artist and patron of European and American postwar art Alfonso Ossorio; and French painter Jean Dubuffet. Approximately 50 paintings and works on paper, focusing on the period from 1948 to 1952 highlight visual affinities among the three artists at pivotal moments in their careers. Curated by Klaus Ottmann, Director of the Center for the Study of Modern Art and Curator at Large at The Phillips Collection, the exhibition is accompanied by a fully-illustrated 140-page catalogue, published by Yale University Press.

Angels, Demons, and Savages: Pollock, Ossorio, Dubuffet has been co-organized by the Parrish Art Museum and The Phillips Collection, Washington, DC, and made possible in part by the generous support of the Terra Foundation for American Art. The catalogue is published with the support of The Dedalus Foundation, Inc. Presentation of the exhibition at the Parrish Art Museum has been generously supported by the Joseph and Sylvia Slifka Foundation and The Corcoran Group. Public Funding provided by Suffolk County.
