Barbara Haskell on “Henry Taylor: B Side” Exhibition
Curator Barbara Haskell will speak about the upcoming retrospective exhibition, Henry Taylor: B Side, on view at the Whitney (October 4, 2023 — January 2024) and organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles. This will be the first exhibition to survey Henry Taylor’s career and includes more than 150 of the artist’s paintings, drawings, sculptures, and installations from the late 1980s to the present.
Henry Taylor (b. 1958), based in Los Angeles, is best known for his portraiture, but his work encompasses a great diversity of genres and influences. The exhibition covers a variety of themes, including portraits of the artist’s family, luminaries of the artistic community, and famous political figures; street scenes; and searing investigations of American history.
Barbara Haskell is a long-time curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art and a well-known scholar on American modern art. She has curated landmark thematic exhibitions and retrospectives, and authored over thirty accompanying scholarly monographs on a range of early-twentieth-century and post-war American artists. In 2003, she was awarded the Lawrence A. Fleischman Award for Scholarly Excellence in the Field of American Art History by the Smithsonian Archives of American Art.
