Mixed media artist Radcliffe Bailey is the winner of the 2010 Elizabeth and Mallory Factor Prize for Southern Art and the accompanying $10,000 prize, presented by the Gibbes Museum A current resident of Atlanta, Bailey is a contemporary artist with a unique body of work most classifiable in terms of its theme: African and African-American history and culture. Bailey, who has also exhibited sculptures, drawings, and paintings, has established himself through site-specific installations and storytelling through his multimedia work incorporating objects, art, and images (everything from piano keys to molten glass). Bailey has been featured at the Met and the Art Institute of Chicago, among other places. His etching “Tobacco Road” is currently on display at the Gibbes.
