Memory and metaphor : the art of Romare Bearden, 1940-1987 by Romare Bearden( Book )

9 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the prolific African American artist Romare Bearden died in 1988 at age 76, there had not been a full retrospective of his work in seventeen years. In April 1991, however, The Studio Museum in Harlem is planning a major exhibition that will offer a survey of the entire spectrum of Bearden's paintings--from the cubist figurative pieces of the 40s, through the lyrical abstractions of the 50s and early 60s, to the brilliant later collages. After opening in Harlem, the exhibition will travel to Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, and Washington, D.C. It is especially appropriate that the retrospective is being organized by The Studio Museum. Throughout his life, Bearden loved and revered Harlem, and was closely connected with the Museum, serving on its Curatorial Council and attending many of its events and programs. Here, Bearden was able to interact with younger artists, as well as writers and musicians, and his influence is felt in much of their work (August Wilson's play The Piano Lesson, for example, is named for one of Bearden's paintings). This catalogue--with a twenty-four page section of beautiful full-color plates--is very nearly as sumptuous a record of Bearden's life and work as the exhibition itself. The Museum's director, Kinshasha Holman Conwill, has written the Introduction, Dr. Mary Schmidt Campbell, the foremost authority on Bearden, has written an essay, and Dr. Sharon F. Patton, the Chief Curator, has contributed an important essay focusing on the themes, styles, and iconography in Bearden's work. In addition to the color plates the text is supported throughout by seventy-eight black-and white illustrations. It also includes a biography of the artist and a selected bibliography, making it essential for scholar and museum-goer alike. Romare Bearden: A Retrospective offers us an extraordinary opportunity to learn how a great artist developed over time. And it also allows us to see how Bearden's work, while thoroughly grounded in the values of the African American tradition, transcends cultural boundries as it speaks powerfully as an art of its time
Wifredo Lam and his contemporaries, 1938-1952 by Wifredo Lam( Book )

Caribbean : art at the crossroads of the world( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unprecedented in scope, this beautiful book offers an authoritative examination of the modern history of the Caribbean through its artistic culture. Featuring 500 color illustrations of artworks from the late 18th through the 21st century, the book explores modern and contemporary art, ranging from the Haitian revolution to the present. Acknowledging both the individuality of each island, the richness of the coastal regions, and the reach of the Diaspora, Caribbean looks at the vital visual and cultural links that exist among these diverse constituencies. The authors examine how the Caribbean has been imagined and pictured, and the role of art in the development of national identity. Essays by leading scholars cover such topics as the interconnections between Caribbean artistic production to its colonial contexts; between various generations of artists; and between the so-called high and low arts and religion, music, and carnival celebrations. Primary source documents crucial to understanding the region provide an important complement. -- Publisher description

Radical presence : black performance in contemporary art( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Radical Presence: Black Performance in Contemporary Art, the first comprehensive survey of performance art by black visual artists. While black performance has been largely contextualized as an extension of theater, visual artists have integrated performance into their work for over five decades, generating a repository of performance work that has gone largely unrecognized until now. Radical Presence provides a critical framework to discuss the history of black performance traditions within the visual arts beginning with the "happenings" of the early 1960s, throughout the 1980s, and into the present practices of contemporary artists."--Publisher's website
