Sam Gilliam In Dialogue

June 27 5:00 PM - September 3, 2018 8:00 PM
Add to Calendar Sam Gilliam In Dialogue Geometric and lyrical suspended works celebrate WCMA’s recent acquisition of Situation VI-Pisces 4 (1972), a signature drape work on a gigantic scale.

Sam Gilliam (American, b. 1933) defies conventional definitions of sculpture and painting with his pioneering use of pigment on un-stretched material.

Situation VI-Pisces 4 (1972) can be suspended in multiple ways, creating interactions with the people and works of art surrounding it. In the spirit of Gilliam’s experimental practice, this exhibition will completely re-install the gallery space three times to reflect different interpretations.

The third installation, The Topographies of Color, includes Lee Krasner's Pink Stone from "Primary Series”, 1969, a lithograph on paper, and will run from June 7 to Sept. 3.
