DALLAS (AP) — The Dallas Museum of Art will be the only U.S. stop for a new touring exhibit next year of Jackson Pollock's work.

The exhibit will be the first in more than three decades to survey a phase of works known as his "black pourings" — a series of black enamel and oil paintings created between 1951 and 1953. "Jackson Pollock: Blind Spots" will open in Dallas in November 2015.

Some of Pollock's earlier works will be displayed as well to put into perspective the departure represented by the lesser-known works from the "black pourings" phase.

The exhibit is organized by the Dallas museum and the Tate Liverpool in England. It will premiere at the Tate Liverpool, running there from June through October of next year before coming to the U.S.
