Janet Taylor Pickett: The Matisse Series — September 10, 2016–June 18, 2017

This exhibition explores the creative dialogue between Taylor Pickett’s artwork and that of renowned French artist Henri Matisse. Held in the Museum’s Roberts and Rotunda galleries, the exhibition features over 70 collages, many of which feature her iconic dresses. Taylor Pickett often juxtaposes images of African sculpture, textiles, and cultural elements, with details from Matisse’s work, typically procured from exhibition catalogue reproductions. This multi-cultural conversation is at the heart of her complex, archetypal work, which often features portraits of the artist herself.
