Dialogue and Defiance — Part IV: Action Painting and Independence

Dialogue and Defiance: Clyfford Still and the Abstract Expressionists considers the nuanced ways in which Clyfford Still was part of an artists’ community in the late 1940s and early 1950s, despite his protestations to the contrary, and how his paintings, through their scale and composition, promote ideas of community.

This video series dives deeper into exhibition themes and supporting research. Part IV features guest curator Valerie Hellstein on action painting and Clyfford Still’s value of independence.
