Film & Talk: Lifeline: Clyfford Still

$15, $5 members and students


Clyfford Still, one of the strongest, most original contributors to abstract expressionism, walked away from the commercial art world at the height of his career. Extremely disciplined, principled, and prolific, Still left behind a treasure trove of works like no other major artist in history. With a wonderful mosaic of archival material, found footage and audio recorded by the artist himself, Lifeline paints a picture of a modern icon, his uncompromising creative journey and the price of independence. Featuring the painter’s surviving daughters, painters Mark Bradford, Julie Mehretu, Julian Schnabel, SFMOMA director Neal Benezra, Clyfford Still Museum director Dean Sobel, award-winning architect Brad Cloepfil, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, art historian David Anfam, art collector Jeffrey Loria, museum director James Demetrion, art critic Jerry Saltz, and writer Tom Healy.

Followed by a conversation with director Dennis Scholl and artist Deborah Buck.
