#SamGilliam's book landed on our desks today at last! The #Music of #Color, a truly #eyeopening and mind altering  #exhibition we attended @kunstmuseumbasel in June, left us with a pervasive #obsession for this man's #paintings, some of which become an everlasting #performance. We will likely and unapologetically share a ton about this #artist in future posts.

Thank you to the "Stiftung für das Kunstmuseum Basel" for gifting us Sam Gilliam's painting Green April (1969)! #kunstmuseumbasel #samgilliam #lovebasel #art #color #basel #artwatchers
Sam Gilliam’s first invention was to mount his colour paintings on beveled-edge stretcher frames. He says that developments in jazz music were inspirational for his innovative works.

Sam Gilliam, The Music of Color 1967–1973 is at @KunstmuseumBasel until 30 September 2018

Sam Gilliam (b. Tupelo, Mississippi, 1933) is one of America’s most prominent abstract painters: his first solo show in Europe, “The Music of Color” presents around 50 works from public and private collections in Europe and the United States. The show puts the focus on the years between 1967 and 1973, the period of the greatest radicalism in Gilliam’s oeuvre: paintings he started working on in 1967 pouring acrylic paint directly onto the unprimed canvas, which he folded and crumpled while the paint was still wet.“The Music of Color” also presents the political and historical dimension of Gilliam’s oeuvre: the works in his Martin Luther King series and Jail Jungle reflect the 1968 race riots and the highly polarised debate over black art and abstract painting in 1960s and 1970s America.

‘I was free to try anything that I really wanted to. I was free to be easy or mysterious. I was free to be the artist that I really wanted to be’ – Sam Gilliam

Sam Gilliam established himself as one of the leading painters of his generation during the 1960s. Working at a time when African-American artists were expected by many to create figurative work explicitly addressing racial subject matters, Gilliam insisted on using abstract art to address or transcend cultural and political boundaries.

You can see more of Gilliam’s work at Brooklyn Museum’s exhibition, Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power, opening today (@brooklynmuseum). His art will also be on display at our Rockefeller Center galleries this November.

Sam Gilliam’s „Lady Day II“ (1971) will be offered at Christie’s Post-War & Contemporary Art Evening Sale in November in New York with an estimate of $1.5 - 2million. It was recently exhibited at the seminal Sam Gilliam retrospectivest Kunstmuseum Basel. Analyzing the current hot market for the artist, it can be expected to sell for well beyond the high estimate. #samgilliam #christies #newyork #eveningsale #artauction #auctionhouse #abstractart #contemporaryart

The large scale colourful Drapes are a jaw-dropping sight when seen live. Sam Gilliam‘s works from 1967-1973 were revolutionary because he freed the canvas from stretcher frames and they are still vibrant and fresh. All works were mounted with the artist being present in Basel.

Sam Gilliam: 10/27/69 1969; Carousel Form ll 1969; Swing 1969; Relative 1969

So much goodness in today’s celebration of “Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power” @brooklynmuseum ... Too many highlights to name from both the exhibition and the program, but the Sam Gilliam is a knock out, and then @ohashuhlee also interviewed him (major kudos for that - and for organizing the BKM presentation of the show!). And wonderful to see @kameelahr interview the Jarrells too. Don’t miss this show. 2 floors of greatness. Huge congrats to @markgodfrey1973 @zoe.whitley @tate ... and then there’s the outstanding Public Programs team - wow! #soulofanationbkm #brooklynmuseum #samgilliam #jaejarrell #wadsworthjarrell #somanymore

‘I was free to try anything that I really wanted to. I was free to be easy or mysterious. I was free to be the artist that I really wanted to be’ – Sam Gilliam
.
Sam Gilliam established himself as one of the leading painters of his generation during the 1960s. Working at a time when African-American artists were expected by many to create figurative work explicitly addressing racial subject matters, Gilliam insisted on using abstract art to address or transcend cultural and political boundaries.
.
You can see more of Gilliam’s work at Brooklyn Museum’s exhibition, Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power, opening today (@brooklynmuseum). His art will also be on display at our Rockefeller Center galleries this November.

Recent trip 3 of 3 to the Met where what I wanted to see was closed off 😒 BUT still worth going to see familiar works (the Ellsworth Kelly rainbow panel work that’s been up for as long as I can remember) alongside ones that I’ve come to like more recently (Sam Gilliam’s draped painting) in the contemporary galleries (which are still, bafflingly, mostly large scale painting). #TheMet #MetropolitanMuseumOfArt #contemporaryart #contemporarypainting #SamGilliam #EllsworthKelly
