In the fall of 1959, Clyfford Still was the subject of a major one-person exhibition at the Albright Art Gallery (now the Albright-Knox Art Gallery) in Buffalo, New York. This exhibition was among the largest of his career and the first exhibition after Still effectively broke ties with the art world in 1951.
1959 will include selections from the original exhibition in Buffalo (works now in the Clyfford Still Museum collection) along with extensive materials from the Museum’s archives. Exhibition enhancements, in the Boettcher Foundation Education Gallery, will include an audio recording of Still reading his introduction to the 1959 exhibition catalogue and an interactive that allows visitors to virtually visit the original Buffalo installation.
