Wellesley College’s Davis Museum is ramping up for the northeast premiere of artist Radcliffe Bailey’s exhibit, called Memory as Medicine, running Feb. 15-May 6. A free opening reception will be held from 5-7pm on Feb. 15.
Museum director Lisa Fischman says in a statement: “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.”
Translation, uhh, go see the exhibit, which features mixed-media paintings and installations, including Windward Coast, seen above (it features hundreds of piano keys). The exhibit was on display June-September at Atlanta’s High Museum of Art.
Fun fact: Bailey is married to an actress/dancer named Victoria Rowell.
