“What I might call her élan, her soul,” says Rick Powell, Duke University professor about one of Barkley Hendricks ’70s portraits of black Americans. It’s a funny mashing of experts talking art and some really old rad personal style that we just cannot replicate in current times. We wrote about Hendricks’ first retrospective happening now at Duke’s Nasher Museum but have yet been unable to make it to North Carolina to see the exhibit (though we—and you—have until July). This video tour of the exhibit is second best, but we’ll take it. Because even if we went right now Hendricks wouldn’t be there rocking a sweet neckscarf and he is on YouTube. Win some/lose some.”-Fader Magazine
