The latest paintings and sculptures from acclaimed color-field veteran Sam Gilliam
Including paintings, sculpture and works on paper, this book documents new works by DC-based color-field painter Sam Gilliam (born 1933). A new interview with the artist brings insight into his life and practice, as well as the experience of making this body of work, which represents an aesthetic shift from Gilliam’s canonical “drape” paintings.
Published for the artist’s inaugural 2020 exhibition at Pace Gallery, in advance of the artist’s solo exhibition at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in spring 2022—which will be Gilliam’s first retrospective in the US in over 15 years—the book also includes new scholarship by Courtney J. Martin and Fred Moten.
