Radcliffe Bailey

Biography from The Columbus Museum of Art, Georgia

Born in Bridgeton, New Jersey in 1968, Radcliffe Bailey was raised and educated in Atlanta, where he lives and works today.  He graduated from Benjamin El Mays High School and received a B.F.A. from Atlanta College of Art in 1991. 

Bailey produces large three-dimensional paintings that address his life as a young Southern African-American.  His work, constructed from found-objects, draws on a variety of sources, including historical events, popular culture, family memories, and African traditions as they have been changed and preserved in African-American culture.

His work has been included in numerous museum exhibitions, including those at Whitney Museum of American Art in New York; the Harriet Tubman Museum in Macon, Georgia; the Studio Museum in Harlem; and the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia.

His work is held in numerous public and private collections throughout the country, including the Columbus Museum, Chicago Art Institute, the Denver Art Museum and the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC. Kristen Miller Zohn, Columbus Museum
