Museum Publications

Tate

Earlier this year,  Tate Liverpool presented a retrospective of the work of Polish artist  Edward Krasinski (1925-2004), one of the most significant Eastern European artists of the 20th century. The exhibition spans his entire career and brings together a range of his dynamic sculptures, interventions and installations, including rarely exhibited early works from the 1960s. (Worldwide  37572)
 
In late September 2016 and spurring an exhibition that ran through the end of the year, London's Tate Britain announced the four short-listed artists for the 2016 Turner Prize: Michael Dean , Anthea Hamilton, Josephine Pryde and winner Helen Marten . Presented annually since 1984 to a British visual artist under the age of 50, the Turner prize aims to promote public debate around new developments in contemporary British art . (Worldwide 83160 )
 


Clyfford Still Museum
 
After the artist's death in 1980, the Clyfford Still Estate was sealed off from public and scholarly view. Still's will stipulated that his estate be given in its entirety to an American city willing to establish a permanent museum dedicated solely to his work. In August 2004, the City of Denver, was selected by Still's wife, and the Clyfford Still Museum opened in 2011. The Museum's collection, which represents 95 percent of the artist's lifetime output, includes approximately 3,125 works created between 1920 and 1980.
 

In 2015, a series of drawings and paintings depicting the landscape and indigenous peoples living in Northeastern Washington, created by Still at a summer art colony on the Colville Reservation between 1934 and 1939, was exhibited at the museum. (Worldwide 83365)
 

Later in 2015, the museum featured a show that centered on what Still referred to as "replicas," closely related paintings that are versions of or variations on the same work. The artist considered these replicas to be essential when the idea conveyed by a work merited reiteration on multiple canvases. (Worldwide 37637)
 

The Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo holds the second-largest collection of works by Still. Inspired by Still's use of black, African-American artist Mark Bradford (b. 1961) selected a group of these paintings to enter into a dialogue with several of his own works. The resulting exhibition, titled "Shade: Clyfford Still/Mark Bradford," closed in Buffalo last fall and travels to Denver in April. (Worldwide 37631)
 


Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art

A spectacular group of Western paintings and Native American artifacts was recently on display at the Eiteljorg Museum. Bequeathed to the museum by former NFL Tennesee Titans owner Kenneth S. "Bud" Adams, the collection includes paintings by Remington, Russell and Moran as well as traditional clothing from Plains tribes, pottery and weavings from the Southwest, and Cherokee basketry. (Worldwide 37640)
 
The Eiteljorg recently published a catalogue documenting a 2014 exhibition that featured 41 black-and-white images produced by Los Angeles-based photographer Blake Little between 1988 and 1992, the works depicting the gay rodeo circuit and the lives of many of its participants. (Worldwide 83372)
