Charlotte Burns of Art Agency Partners recently sat down with Tavares Strachan to discuss his broad ranging practice and new funding models in the art world. Congratulations to Charlotte and AAP on this podcast series. Our favorites to date include episodes with Jerry Salz, Tom Sachs, and Glenn Lowry.
Vancouver's Rennie Collection will open Winter 2015: Collected Works on January 23, 2016. The exhibition will present the work of 41 artists, including Tavares Strachan and John Baldessari:
John Baldessari's (b. 1931) larger-than-life Camel (Albino) Contemplating Needle (Large) (2013) casts its meditative gaze towards the eye of the adjacent towering needle, illuminating a confluence of beliefs and connecting cultures that have drifted apart through the course of history.

Congratulations to artist Tavares Strachan for his participation in Prospect.3, New Orleans. You Belong Here is a 100 foot neon work on a barge that traveled the Mississippi river for a week in late October. The accompanying You Belong Here app is available on iTunes. More recently, a 61 inch version of the work sold at Phillips to benefit the Dubin Breast Center at The Mount Sinai Health System.
Beyer Projects is pleased to announce our partnership with Tavares Strachan in production of work for the Bahamas Pavilion, 2013 Venice Biennale. Vernissage TV interviewed Strachan during final installation.
"The artist Tavares Strachan represents The Bahamas in the nation's inaugural pavilion at the 55th International Art Exhibition -- La Biennale di Venezia 2013. Curated by Jean Crutchfield and Robert Hobbs, Tavares Strachan conceived an immersive installation that includes different media such as neon signs, video, sculpture, and painting, and surrounds the viewer by documentation of a reenactment of a historic narrative: the 1909 polar expedition of Robert Peary and Matthew Alexander Henson."
