Barkley L. Hendricks: Birth of the Cool
UNITED STATES
DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA  •  Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University  •  Ongoing
 

Born in 1945 in Philadelphia, Barkley L. Hendricks's unique work resides at the nexus of American realism and post-modernism, a space somewhere between portraitists Chuck Close and Alex Katz and pioneering black conceptualists David Hammons and Adrian Piper. He is best known for his stunning, life-sized portraits of people of color from the urban northeast.

This exhibition of Hendricks's paintings includes work from 1964 to the present. Trevor Schoonmaker, curator of contemporary art at the Nasher Museum, organized the show. The exhibition catalogue, distributed by Duke University Press, includes contributions from Schoonmaker, Richard J. Powell, the John Spencer Bassett Professor of Art and Art History at Duke University, Thelma Golden, Director and Chief Curator at the Studio Museum in Harlem, and Franklin Sirmans, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Menil Collection.
