Los-Angeles based artist Henry Taylor began his 18-month residency by investigating the racist and divisive histories of the tartan—a patterned cloth consisting of criss-crossed, horizontal and vertical bands, typically in multiple colors. In Nothing Change, Nothing Strange, Taylor considers the signifying potential of color and pattern, the complexity and parameters of space, and the historical persistence of oppression—illustrated by the exhibition’s very title.
