No. 471: Radcliffe Bailey

Episode No. 471 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist Radcliffe Bailey.

Bailey is included in “Person of Interest” at Sheldon Museum of Art at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. The exhibition explores portraiture from the late nineteenth century to the present in ways that test the definition of the genre. It was curated by Melissa Yuen and will be on view through July 3, 2021.

Bailey’s paintings, sculptures, and installations explores themes such as history, migration, and the relationship between geography and ancestry. He has had solo exhibitions at institutions such as the Aldrich in Ridgefield, Conn., the Birmingham Museum of Art, the Blaffer Gallery at the University of Houston, the New Britain Museum of American Art, the Clark Atlanta University Art Galleries, the Toledo Museum of Art, the High Museum of Art, and plenty more.

The episode was recorded for a live digital audience on Nov. 5.
