Texts by Maikoio Alley Barnes, Helen Molesworth, Henry Taylor, and Jo-Anne Birnie Danzker
This catalogue is published by the Frye Art Museum on the occasion of the exhibition Young Blood: Noah Davis, Kahlil Joseph, The Underground Museum. Celebrating the life and legacy of painter, curator, and visionary artist Noah Davis (1983–2015), Young Blood places Davis’ work in the context of an ongoing visual dialogue with his elder brother, artist and filmmaker Kahlil Joseph. The catalogue features essays by Maikoiyo Alley-Barnes, curator of the exhibition; Helen Molesworth, chief curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Henry Taylor, Davis’ friend and fellow artist; and Jo-Anne Birnie Danzker, director emerita of the Frye Art Museum. The catalogue contains rich reproductions of the paintings, installations, sculptural, and filmic works in the exhibition. Young Blood is a celebration of black culture, spirituality, and creative legacy.
