Inaugural Exhibition, Part II

May 2–Sep 9, 2012

The second installation of the inaugural exhibition includes new works from the Museum’s deep holdings, including discoveries made since the opening and an entirely new selection of works on paper. While the organizational principles of the first presentation remain—such as gallery installations aligned with the geographic locations where the works were created—a deeper understanding of Still’s imagery and themes are revealed through new comparisons and associations, suggesting there is still much to learn about this extensive body of work.

Curated by Director Dean Sobel and Adjunct Curator David Anfam

Works from both parts of the inaugural exhibition are included in a 250-page book titled Clyfford Still: The Artist’s Museum, published by Skira Rizzoli Publications in association with the Clyfford Still Museum.
