The Clyfford Still Museum
opened to the public this weekend with a positive review from the LA times
I've make no secret that Still is one of my favorite artists and in the past I've pointed how his Northwest roots run very deep
. Here Arcy and I interviewed architect Brad Cloepfil about the design of this project
... which appears to be his best work since the W+K HQ.
I hope to visit Denver soon. Overall, I'm fascinated with artists who avoided conceding control of their work to institutions. Instead, artists like Still and Donald Judd strove to control the presentation of their work, even from beyond the grave. There are problems and big payoffs if you pull it off like Still and Judd have though. Will James Turrell and Michael Heizer pull it off too?
I'll try to cull together more links here as the become posted:
