Impulse! is an exhibition of radical abstract painting from the United States in the 1960s and 70s.
Focusing on lyrical, post-painterly abstraction, the exhibition features work by Kenneth Noland, Morris Louis, Sam Gillam, Ed Clark and Frank Bowling. Responding to the dominance of Abstract Expressionism in the 50s, these artists boldly experimented with process, form and colour. Each found new ways to apply paint to canvas, championed improvisational techniques, and used colour expressively.
