Carrie Mae Weems : the Hampton Project by Vivian Patterson( Book )

8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One Hundred Years of Difference brings together photographs from Frances B. Johnston's stunning Hampton Album of 1900 with a related series of new images by renowned contemporary artist Carrie Mae Weems. Johnston's portrayal of the Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute, founded in 1868 in Virginia for the education of "selected Negro youths" and displaced Native Americans, is a thought-provoking historical album. Weems, known for her savvy and ironic view of race struggle in America, illustrates the "one hundred years of difference" with a new series of photographic banners, shaped in direct response to Johnston's images and to life at Hampton University today. This remarkable book examines the work of two women, distanced by time and race yet joined by their shared interest in a unique educational experience. One Hundred Years of Difference includes an interview with Weems, as well as essays by Deborah Willis (curator for the Center for African-American History and Culture at the Smithsonian Institution) and Jeanne Zeidler (director of the Museum of Art at Hampton University), among others. An accompanying exhibition opened at the Williams College Museum of Art in March 2000 and will travel to venues throughout the United States

Muse : Mickalene Thomas photographs by Mickalene Thomas( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mickalene Thomas, known for her large-scale, multi-textured, and rhinestone-encrusted paintings of domestic interiors and portraits, has also identified the photographic image as a defining touchstone for her practice. Thomas first began to photograph herself and her mother as a student at Yale--a pivotal experience for her as an artist. While working across multiple series, much of her photographic work functions as a personal act of deconstruction and reappropriation--both of images she has created herself and images she has singled out as influence. With each series, she grapples with and asserts new definitions of beauty and inspiration. Thomas's portraits draw equally from 1970s black-is-beautiful images of women such as supermodel Beverly Johnson and actress Vonetta McGee; Édouard Manet's odalisque figures; and the mise-en-scène studio portraiture of James Van Der Zee and Malick Sidibé, to mention a few. Perhaps of greatest importance, however, this collection of portraits and staged scenes reflects a very personal community of inspiration as well--a collection of muses that includes herself, her mother, and her friends and lovers, emphasizing the communal and social aspects of art-making and creativity that pervade her work. This volume is the first to gather together her various approaches to photography, including portraits, collages, Polaroids, and other processes, and will be the foundation for a major traveling exhibition of the work to launch in 2015." -- Publisher's description

Art and race matters : the career of Robert Colescott( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Colescott (1925-2009) was a trailblazing artist, whose august career was as unique as his singular artistic style. Known for figurative satirical paintings that exposed the ugly ironies of race in America from the 1970s through thate 1990s, his 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. This volume--accompanying the largest retrospective of the artist's work ever mounted--surveys the entirety of Colescott's body of work, including early works which have rarely been seen. The book includes substantive essays by two of the curators of the exhibition, Lowery Stokes Sims and Matthew Weseley, as well as reminiscences and thought pieces by a variety of family, friends, collaborators, students, curators, dealers, and scholars on his work and a selection of writings by the artist himself. This collection of diverse essays, interviews, and personal remembrances presents perspectives and insights which allow for a richer understanding of the artist's work. Importantly, this catalogue provides detailed stylistic analyses of Colescott's politically inflected oeuvre, focusing on the artist's own consideration of his work in the context of the grand traditions of European painting and contemporary polemic. Relying on previously unpublished transcripts of lectures, reviews, and archival materials provided by institutions and individuals, the book offers a fuller story of the artist's important life and career."
