Artist Radcliffe Bailey discussed his creative process and career with Tyler Green, host of the Modern Art Notes Podcast, on November 5, 2020. Sheldon Museum of Art presented their conversation, via Zoom, in conjunction with its exhibition “Person of Interest.” Bailey is an Atlanta-based painter, sculptor, and mixed media artist who layers photographs, text, found objects, and other culturally resonant materials to explore themes of ancestry, race, history, migration, and collective memory. His mixed media work “Distant Stars II”was loaned to Sheldon for the exhibition from the private collection of Kathryn and Marc LeBaron. Bailey’s work is included in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art; Smithsonian Institution; Art Institute of Chicago; Denver Art Museum; High Museum of Art; and Sheldon Museum of Art among many others. Jack Shainman Gallery has represented Bailey since 2002. Green is an historian, critic, and the host of the Modern Art Notes Podcast, a weekly interview program that has aired over 460 episodes. His first book, “Carleton Watkins: Making the West American” (University of California Press, 2018), won a California Book Award gold medal in 2019.
