Shade: Clyfford Still / Mark Bradford was published on the occasion of the exhibition "Shade: Clyfford Still / Mark Bradford," which was on view at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery from May 26 to October 2, 2016. The exhibition is now on view in a collaborative two-venue presentation at the Denver Art Museum and Clyfford Still Museum through July 16, 2017.

This exhibition catalog brings together the work of celebrated American artists Clyfford Still (1904–1980) and Mark Bradford (born 1961). Bradford, who has long been fascinated by Still’s use of black as a signature component of his abstract imagery, has chosen to read Still’s relationship with black as an open-minded invitation to dialogue. Including reproductions of twenty-five paintings by Still and a group of works Bradford created specifically for the exhibition, it also features an essay by Albright-Knox Senior Curator Cathleen Chaffee and an interview with Bradford on Still by Michael Auping, Chief Curator at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. Taken together, the exhibition and book provide the opportunity to reconsider Still’s paintings and the historical moment that brought about both abstract expressionism and the Civil Rights movement in the company of one of today’s most admired artists.
