Shade: Clyfford Still / Mark Bradford

Apr 9, 2017 - Jul 16, 2017

Contemporary works and abstract expressionist masterpieces converge in Shade: Clyfford Still / Mark Bradford, a collaborative presentation by the Denver Art Museum and Clyfford Still Museum (CSM). Paintings by renowned contemporary American artist Mark Bradford-who was recently named the U.S. representative at the 2017 Venice Biennale-will be on view at the DAM, alongside related canvases by Clyfford Still. An exhibition of Still's work curated by Bradford will be on view at CSM. Shade underscores the legacy of abstract expressionism and Bradford's exploration of abstraction's power to address social and political concerns.
