Join exhibition curators Bailey Placzek and Dean Sobel on a professionally recorded tour of Stories We Tell. this exhibition digs deep into the Museum’s vaults to present works from the Museum’s collection in two complementary but alternate ways as a means to understand how artworks and their meaning can change based on curatorial strategy.
Accompany Dean Sobel on his final trip through the galleries as Clyfford Still Museum Director, leading a virtual tour of The Late Works: Clyfford Still in Maryland, his last exhibition for the Clyfford Still Museum. The new exhibition investigates the artist’s later works, both in painting and in drawing, made after his move to rural Maryland in 1961. This tour was recorded in September 2020.
Join Clyfford Still Museum Director Dean Sobel on a tour broadcast the secret depths of CSM’s north painting storage vaults. In a recording of a live event from August 17, 2020, Sobel takes us behind the scenes to show us what storage is like, and pulls out painting racks to share some paintings that have never been displayed at the Museum, collection curiosities, and some of his own personal favorites.
Watch a recording of this special virtual tour as we use Still’s art to explore the experiences and interpretations of others and build the skill of empathy. CSM streamed this event live from the galleries on August 6, 2020.
The start of this year was marked by the outbreak of COVID-19 and now we are grasping towards a reckoning with systemic racism that has plagued the United States since its founding. Clyfford Still continued to create through multiple periods of crisis during his lifetime: the 1918 Flu Pandemic, the Great Depression, World War II, the Cold War and his own personal battle with cancer. Join CSM educators on a virtual tour of our galleries to share in a discussion in which we placed Still’s work in this historical context of crisis, and considered the manifestations of crisis in the work of the artist. This is a recording from a virtual tour on July 14, 2020.
