More information

One of the foremost American figurative painters working today, Barkley Hendricks has long been an inspiration for younger artists. For nearly 50 years, his images of friends, acquaintances, and subjects met on the street have enlivened and interrogated art historical genre, while rendering a moving portrait of cultural and historical milieus. Flooding portraiture with oft-overlooked subjects, Hendricks focuses our attention on the conversations and representations surrounding class and race, while delivering his characters with cool wit and style.

Following his talk, Hendricks will be in conversation with Matt Saunders, assistant professor of Visual and Environmental Studies at Harvard University, and students from his painting class.... Read more about Dr. Hendricks at Harvard
