Join Museum Hue for our next Hueseum Tour at Frick Madison, 945 Madison Avenue at 75th Street
New York, NY 10021 on October 6 from 5 – 7 pm. Attendees will begin in The SisterYard, the Frick Madison’s onsite cafe, on the LG level (downstairs from the Lobby/entry level) at 5:00 p.m. followed by an exclusive after hours tour of Barkley L. Hendricks: Portraits at the Frick from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.
Barkley L. Hendricks (1945–2017) revolutionized contemporary portraiture with his vivid depictions of Black subjects that emphasize the dignity and individuality of his sitters. Beginning in the late 1960s, his work drew from and challenged traditions of European art, and The Frick Collection—with its iconic portraits by Rembrandt, Bronzino, Van Dyck, and others—was one of his favorite museums.
The exhibition, “celebrates and explores the remarkable work of this pioneering American painter with an unprecedented display of paintings drawn from private and public collections.” Organized by Aimee Ng, Curator at the Frick, and Consulting Curator Antwaun Sargent, Barkley L. Hendricks: Portraits at the Frick considers the complex place of European painting in Hendricks’s art and the evolving role of the Frick in modern American culture.
