"Radcliffe Bailey: The Magic City"
2000-10-08 until 2000-12-31
Birmingham Museum of Art
Birmingham, AL, USA United States of America

An exhibition of new paintings by Radcliffe Bailey, an Atlanta-based contemporary artist.  Bailey’s highly personalized painting style uses mixed media to merge aspects of his African- American cultural experience with emblematic components of expressionist painting.

In order to create this body of work specifically for the BMA, Mr. Bailey closely studied the African art collection at the BMA and integrated this referential imagery with his own dense pictorial allusive imagery; a dialogue between image and object arises between the African presence and its African-American transcription.  The Magic City (a favorite Birmingham moniker) will be a record of Bailey’s artistic discourse with Birmingham and will allow audiences to experience one artist’s interpretation of the layered, intersecting social and cultural histories of this city.
