Paperback - 2017
Rate this:
In the period of radical change that was 1963-1983, young black artists at the beginning of their careers in the USA confronted key questions and pressures. How could they make art that would stand as innovative, original, formally and materially complex, while also making work that reflected their concerns and experience as black Americans? This publication surveys this crucial period in American art history, bringing to light previously neglected histories of twentieth-century black artists including Sam Gilliam, Melvin Edwards, Jack Whitten, William T. Williams, and Frank Bowling.
