Tavares Strachan: In Plain Sight is the first major book on the artist to be published since 2014. Focusing on his extraordinary exhibition at Marian Goodman Gallery London in 2020, this hardcover book features a lenticular print on the cover and over 120 full color images. The book includes a new and insightful text by esteemed writer and art critic Adrian Searle.
The exhibition In Plain Sight combined painting, sculpture, installation, music, and performance within an immersive, site-specific experience. Many elements of the exhibition were hidden, revealing new and inner worlds to the visitors who discovered them. The experience and the works on view prompted visitors to reconsider the Western canon, learn the value of forgotten histories, and invite new voices to participate. This fully-illustrated catalogue presents a unique and lively documentation of this exceptional show.
Tavares Strachan was born in 1979 in Nassau, Bahamas, and currently lives and works between New York City and Nassau. Tavares Strachan’s artistic practice activates the intersections of art, science, and politics, offering us uniquely synthesized points of view on the cultural dynamics of knowledge. He works in collaboration with organizations and institutions across disciplines, to promote a broader and more inclusive understanding of the work of both artists, scientists, and the systems and support networks that make their work possible.
