Radcliffe Bailey: Memory as Medicine
A celebration of the greater African American story and Radcliffe Bailey’s personal discoveries about his family origins, this exhibition took its title from the artist’s ‘medicine cabinet’ sculptures. These containers allude to Bailey’s ancestors and function as medicine as he reaches for memory to restore himself. Ranging from a miniscule drawing of a traditional African mask to a nearly 24-foot collage, Radcliffe Bailey: Memory as Medicine focused on three overlapping themes: water, blues and blood.
