This large exhibition focuses on the phase of Sam Gilliam's oeuvre during which he produced probably his most radical and influential works. His highly expressive painting style demonstrates three-dimensionality in a literal sense and goes beyond the bounds of traditional painting on a stretched support.

The exhibition is supported by:

  • Credit Suisse (Schweiz) AG
  • Terra Foundation for American Art
  • Stiftung für das Kunstmuseum Basel
