Explosion! 
Painting as action 
2 June–9 September 2012
Curator: Magnus af Petersens
Kazuo Shiraga painted with his feet, suspended by ropes above the canvas; Andy Warhol or his assistants urinated on the canvas; and Niki de Saint Phalle fired a rifle at her panels that she had prepared with balloons of paint under layers of plaster. The exhibition Explosion features works by some 50 artists from the late 1940s to today. 
Moderna Museet’s exhibition Explosion takes off where modernism ends, when it was so ripe that it was on the verge of exploding—which it did, in the form of a variety of new ways of making art.
