Works by Nathan Hall in Collaboration with the Clyfford Still Museum.

Clyfford Still’s artistic language embraces vocabulary from the figurative to the highly gestural and from the representational to the graphic and abstract. Many of these features have correlations in music and sound. Based on these ideas, composer Nathan Hall, along with an ensemble of musicians, will perform a series of short musical compositions derived from “musical material” created by visitors in response to the art on view in Clyfford Still: The Works on Paper. Visual components like color, texture, size and gesture will be translated into musical elements, creating a sonic portrait of the works on view.

Visit Nathan in the DRAWING Room on Friday, October 28 from 4:30–7:30 pm and Sunday, November 6 from 1:30–4:30 p.m. to explore the visual language of sound and contribute to the audio piece that will be performed on Friday, November 25.
