    Contemporary African Art Since 1980 is the first major survey of the work of contemporary African artists from diverse situations, locations, and generations who work either in or outside of Africa, but whose practices engage and occupy the social and cultural complexities of the continent since the past 30 years. Its frame of analysis is absorbed with historical transitions: from the end of the postcolonial utopias of the sixties during the 1980s to the geopolitical, economic, technological, and cultural

  • EyeMinded: Living and Writing Contemporary Art

    A daughter of the poets Hettie Jones and Amiri Baraka, Kellie Jones grew up immersed in a world of artists, musicians, and writers in Manhattan’s East Village and absorbed in black nationalist ideas about art, politics, and social justice across the river in Newark. The activist vision of art and culture that she learned in those two communities, and especially from her family, has shaped her life and work as an art critic and curator. Featuring selections of her writings from the past twenty years,

    60593 Old Kentucky home, African American life in the south; scene set in a Washington, D.C., backyard with African Americans who enact virtually every phase of family life: courtship and marriage, motherhood, training the young, and listening to the elderly. Focusing on the black community, he marginalizes the white visitor at the right. Johnson seems to have sought a measure of ambiguity in recounting his tale. Such open-ended story lines would characterize many postwar paintings of everyday life.

  • American 1960's pop art painting on silk style of Shepard Fairey signe

    When I first saw this I thought it might be an image of Obama, in the style of Shepard Fairey, who created the now-famous "Hope" image. Upon closer examination I saw that it was obviously older, circa 1960's, judging from the label on the frame, which gives the artist as a Jim Moran of Visalia, California. The subject remains to me a mystery, but I wonder if it might be a famous 1960's African-American activist---or then again it might not be a black subject at all. There's an "Op-Art" element mixed with

  • Contemporary Art: A Little Taste Outside of Love

    A Little Taste Outside of Love Inspired by images of iconic African American women, emblems of the black power movement, and her mother’s photographs from the 1970s, Mickalene Thomas creates monumental pictures that explore and challenge the representation and objectification of women, and black women in particular. Here she casts an African American woman as leading lady in an updated version of a longestablished visual archetype—a sexualized female subject seemingly caught unaware as she reclines
