HENRY TAYLOR IN TOKYO AND LOS ANGELES

An exhibition of new paintings by Henry Taylor will be up in Tokyo through mid-May. In Los Angeles, Taylor will be honored at the ICA LA benefit brunch, with a tribute by Mark Bradford.

“For Taylor, portraiture is much more than an artistic convention of a realistic painter; the variety that he produces within the genre reshapes what might be considered a conventional language into a flexible vehicle for a much larger goal, which is to produce a multivalent but also highly specific view of contemporary life as seen through the eyes of an African American artist at the beginning of the twenty-first century.” – Laura Hoptman*

 

HENRY TAYLOR, through May 19.
