Event Details

The new exhibition The Early Years: Clyfford Still in Canada, 1920–33 illustrates the early development and legacy of Still’s artistic practices in two distinctive Canadian geographical settings, Bow Island (1920–25) and Killam, Alberta (1925–33). Organized by guest curator Patricia Failing, the exhibition is the third in a series she organized tracing Still’s inspirations and achievements during his first two decades as a young artist.

The exhibition concludes with some of Still’s later, mature abstractions, which Still believed, “have nothing to do with prairie.” The chromatic and special effects that emerge in the work of the 1970s on view echo some of his youthful beginnings.

The Clyfford Still Museum is open 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday and Saturday-Sunday and open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Fridays.  The Museum is closed on Mondays.
