Art and Race Matters: The Career of Robert Colescott
This is the most comprehensive volume devoted to the life and work of pioneering African American artist Robert Colescott, accompanying the largest traveling exhibition of his work ever mounted.
Know for figurative satirical paintings that exposed the ugly ironies of race in America from the 1970s through the late 1990s, Colescott's work was profoundly influential to the generations of artists that have followed him, such as Kara Walker, Kehinde Wiley, and Henry Taylor, among many others.
The catalog includes contributions by more than ten curators and writers, including a substantive essay by the show's curator, Lowery Stokes Sims.
Hardcover, full-color illustrations
