Description

This tote’s design was made from a sketch in which Henry Taylor breaks apart the word “Tartan” into “Tar/Tan”—evidence of how Taylor’s thinking process, artistic process, and use of materials is connected to his sharp and subversive dismantling of language. Produced on the occasion of the artist’s solo exhibition, Nothing Change, Nothing Strange.

Henry Taylor: Nothing Change, Nothing Strange

March 2–October 22, 2023

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.
