Music is a major inspiration of Atlanta artist Radcliffe Bailey, whose exhibit “Memory as Medicine” recently opened at the High Museum of Art. So the High has organized a series of four music-themed films, titled “Radcliffe Bailey: One World Under the Groove,” selected in consultation with the artist. They will be shown on four consecutive Saturday nights starting this weekend:
