Henry Taylor: B Side Pentaptych Edition (See Alice Jump)
Skateboard Edition featuring artwork by Henry Taylor.
Produced on the occasion of Henry Taylor: B Side, MOCA Los Angeles, November 6, 2022 – April 30, 2023.
Released as an edition size of just 50, the See Alice Jump pentaptych depicts Taylor’s 2011 painting of Alice Coachman. Zadie Smith continues, ‘No one else could have painted See Alice Jump or The Long Jump by Carl Lewis (2010), in which African-American sports stars leap through the artist’s beloved horizontal, and thus through time, through neighborhoods, through Black history itself, offering a vision of the heroic that lives alongside the prisons and the projects, which exists despite those things and yet does not, could not, erase or justify them. Taylor sees in the round.’
