Beyond Mammy, Jezebel & Sapphire : reclaiming images of Black women : works from the collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his family foundation by Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Engaging a wide range of experiences and artistic practices, the nine artists featured in this exhibition challenge the controlling images of Black women that continue to pervade our culture and influence perceptions. Their artworks jar loose expectations and replace simplistic narratives with nuanced, sophisticated meditations on contemporary identity. The essays in this publication similarly present a variety of perspectives on the artworks and the ideas they present. Contributions from a diverse group of accomplished scholars, activists, artists, and writers provide multiple viewpoints from which to consider the exhibition and the questions it presents. Together, the artists' works and the author's voices reveal the complexity of identity, the necessity for self-determination, and the power of art to stimulate dialogue." -- Publisher's description

"As a new chapter begins in this country, The black list offers a dynamic and never-before-heard perspective from achievers of color. This series of inspired--and inspiring--observations on African American life in the 21st century forms a roll call of some of the most compelling politicians, writers, thinkers and performers ever to tackle their fields of endeavor. Watch the interview-portraits contained in The black list, and get a sharper snapshot of where this country has been and where it's headed"--Container

La première femme noire à participer à la Biennale de Venise, Lorna Simpson est un artiste conceptuel qui utilise son appareil photo et les mots pour construire de nouveaux mondes et de déconstruire les mondes que nous connaissons. Cette monographie s'ouvre avec ses premières photographies documentaires de la fin des années 1970 et au début des années 1980, un grand nombre jamais vu, et comprend ses ouvres les plus récentes - sérigraphies à grande échelle sur feutre et une installation vidéo travaux en cours, menées en collaboration avec l'architecte David Adjaye. Ce livre présente photo-texte des pièces de Simpson au milieu des années 1980, qui ont porté son attention en premier critique. Sont également inclus des images fixes de mouvement installations de l'image, comme intérieur / extérieur et l'appel en attente, l'Institut, et Momentum ainsi que des dessins liés à son film et de la vidéo. Dans tout le volume de la remise en cause de Simpson de la représentation est évident, que ce soit dans sa juxtaposition déplacement de texte et l'image, son jumelage de mise en scène des images de soi avec leurs sources dans les photographies trouvées, ou son obsédante et vidéo nostalgique, Cloudscape et son écho dans le feutre travailler Cloud
