Radcliffe Bailey: Memory as Medicine

Prestel Publishing, July 2011. First Edition. Oversized Hardcover. Very Good / Very Good. Item #312853
ISBN: 3791351540

This book offers the first mid-career survey of work by emerging American artist Radcliffe Bailey. Ceaseless experimentation is the driving force behind Radcliffe Bailey's extraordinarily diverse body of work. In the past decade alone he has created sculptures, paintings, installations, and works on paper, incorporating everything from coffee to glass to sheet music to tobacco leaves. This volume reproduces
more than 70 works, many of which have never been published before, and considers Bailey's work in a major essay and four shorter discussions. In these large- and small-scale pieces Bailey explores ideas of ancestry, race, memory, struggle, and sacrifice, including the artist's own engagement with African sculpture in connection with an investigation into his family's DNA.

Beautiful, unread copy in flawless dust jacket, which is wrapped for protection. Signed on the title page by the recently deceased artist, Radcliffe Bailey.
