    Garland Taylor


    Garland Martin Taylor is a Chicago-based sculptor and researcher. Working with materials such as bald cypress twigs, kinky hair, baseball stitching, steel, stainless steel, aluminum, cut tacks, wood and stone, he creates large-scale abstract, functional and socio-politically charged heirlooms inspired by his research and scholarship on 19th century black political cartoons. Most recently, Taylor was a core collaborator in a Mellon Fellowship at the Gray Center for Arts and Inquiry at the University of Chicago, where he co- taught the course “The Art and Politics of Black Death” with political scientist Cathy J. Cohen and documentary filmmaker Orlando Bagwell.
