Jackson Pollock’s Mural at the Getty

Commonwealth Projects’ collaboration with the Getty Conservation Institute resulted in an inspiring series of video pieces featured in an exhibition at the Getty Museum. The three documentaries follow the Getty Conservation Institute’s team as they grapple with the physical, aesthetic and ethical challenges of restoring the Jackson Pollock painting, Mural, from 1943. Each short film highlights an element of the layered narrative. Our team created dynamic graphic animations to illustrate the complexities of the science behind the sophisticated restoration process. The finished series was displayed in the exhibition alongside the fully restored painting as well as across the Getty’s various websites.
