On view until May 6th is the most comprehensive exhibition of work by acclaimed artist Radcliffe Bailey. This show is not to be missed as it features his monumental installation work “Windward Coast.”
From the Museum’s website: “this exhibition highlights the artist’s ceaseless experimentation with diverse forms as it looks at the influence of African art on his work. It features floor and wall sculptures, paintings, works-on-paper, and modified found objects— all created since 1993. Bailey’s art, informed by a strong social and historical consciousness and solidly grounded in family and community, combines a rich, narrative content with a high-level of abstraction and poetic resonance to explore questions of history and memory.”
