Attention all you Barkley L. Hendricks groupies out there: The party moves to Philly next week.
The much-loved American artist’s acclaimed retrospective opens Oct. 17 at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. You saw it first in 2008 at the Nasher Museum, where the show was organized by Trevor Schoonmaker, curator of contemporary art.
We are not surprised that “Barkley L. Hendricks: Birth of the Cool” was included on the Washington Post’s list of must-see museum exhibitions this year, “Your Global Exhibition Expedition.”
