Barkley Hendricks retrospective @ Studio Museum




My friend and former professor at Connecticut College, the painter Barkley Hendricks,
will have his work exhibited in his first career retrospective, Birth of the Cool, at The Studio Museum in Harlem.
This is a much welcomed acolade for this under appreciated artist.
On view are his iconic portraits, meditative landscapes, and a caucophony of other works
that comment on the cultural and sexuall mores of our times.
The work and exhibit are a must see and clearly show the prescident
for such current "art stars" as Kehinde Wiley and Rene Cox.
