Date tentative; watch for confirmation. Individual tickets not currently available, but Bradford lecture is included in series ticket.
Mark Bradford compares his studio process with that of Clyfford Still: “What caught my eye was the insistence of his paintings. His surfaces were more raw and immediate than other abstract expressionist paintings.”
Representing the United States in the 2017 Venice Biennale, Bradford joins us for the 100th Logan lecture where he will speak about the exhibition Shade: Clyfford Still / Mark Bradford.
The conversation will be led by Clyfford Still Museum Director Dean Sobel and DAM Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art Rebecca Hart. Bradford's painting Realness (at left) is a significant work included in the exhibition.
Doors open at 5:30 pm.
Individual lecture tickets: Free for DAMC members and students with valid ID (must be presented the night of the lecture), $8 for DAM volunteers, $12 artists, $15 DAM members, $18 nonmembers
Series tickets (six lectures): $48 artists, $60 DAM members, $72 nonmembers
