This fall in New York City, Henry Taylor presents work from his latest series, weaving together visual references spanning contemporary politics, American social adversity, and the faces of his milieu in Senegal, Spain, Paris, and New York, articulated via the language of portraiture.
Henry Taylor (b. 1958, Ventura, CA) continues to delve and expand upon the language of portraiture and painting, while also pointing to the social and political issues affecting African Americans today. From racial inequality, homelessness, and poverty, to the importance of family and community, Taylor says, “My paintings are what I see around me…they are my landscape paintings.”

Chef Cédric Vongerichten loves the picturesque streets of Nolita, which is why he chose this vibrant Manhattan neighborhood as the location for his new restaurant. Wayan offers Indonesian cuisine with a modern French flair. The unique and varied menu combines seasonal products and savory Southeast Asian flavors.
Wayan is Cédric’s first solo venture, after partnering with his father, Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, on eateries in New York and Jakarta. The restaurant’s name reflects this fact. In Balinese culture, each person receives one of four names based on birth order. Wayan is the name given to the first-born child—or, in this case, to the chef’s first independent culinary effort.
