Radcliffe Bailey: “Pensive”

At the heart of this exhibit by internationally known Atlanta artist Radcliffe Bailey is the site-specific installation Storm at Sea, in which Bailey uses piano keys, an African sculpture, and a glitter-covered ship to convey motifs associated with the trans-Atlantic slave trade. The painter, sculptor, and mixed-media artist also displays a cast-bronze sculpture of African-American civil rights activist and author W.E.B. Du Bois in the pose of Rodin’s The Thinker, as well as other recent works that encourage viewers to join in his exploration of themes surrounding ancestry, race, and memory. Gibbes Museum of Art, 135 Meeting St. Tuesday & Thursday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Wednesday, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Sunday, 1-5 p.m. $15; $6 ages four-17. (843) 722-2706, www.gibbesmuseum.org
