Chris Ofili by Chris Ofili( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Chris Ofili's intricately constructed works, combining beadlike dots of paint, collaged images from popular media, and elephant dung, create a unique iconography that marries African artistic and ritual practices with Western art historical traditions and contemporary hip-hop culture. This beautifully designed book, made in close collaboration with the artist, is the first to examine Ofili's artistic development and surveys his work in watercolor, graphite drawing, and sculpture. Literary and historical parallels from a formidable list of contributors explore the ways through which the artist has grasped his times with a palpable sense of history."--Jacket

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 131 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
Ruffneck constructivists : Dineo Seshee Bopape, Kendell Geers, Arthur Jafa, Jennie C. Jones, Kahlil Joseph, Deana Lawson, Rodney McMillian, Pope. L, Tim Portlock, Lior Shvil, Szymon Tomsia by Kara Elizabeth Walker( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ruffneck Constructivists," published to accompany a group exhibition curated by artist Kara Walker, brings together 11 international artists in order to define a contemporary manifesto of urban architecture and change. Inspired by both the Russian Constructivists and McLyte's 1993 hit song "Ruffneck," the phrase "Ruffneck Constructivists" evokes thuggishness as an expression of abjection. The book features sculpture, photography and video by the artists Dineo Seshee Bopape, Kendell Geers, Arthur Jafa, Jennie C. Jones, Kahlil Joseph, Deana Lawson, Rodney McMillian, Pope. L, Tim Portlock, Lior Shvil and Szymon Tomsia. As Walker states, "Ruffneck Constructivists are defiant shapers of environments. Whatever their gender affiliation, Ruffnecks go hard when all around them they see weakness, softness, compromise, sermonizing, poverty, and lack; they don't change the world through conscious actions, instead they build themselves into the world one assault at a time."--Publisher

Freedom : a fable : a curious interpretation of the wit of a negress in troubled times by Kara Elizabeth Walker( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Freedom, a Fable' is an illustrated artist's book with text and pop-up silhouettes. At first glance it appears to be a nineteenth-century children's book, but it is decidedly not. It tells the story of a female slave whose life after emancipation veers far from her dreams of meritocracy, revealing that Freedom, a Fable is not just the title of the work but is also the lesson to be learned" -- National Gallery of Art website, viewed June 14, 2016
Artists on Andy Warhol( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Artists on Andy Warhol' is the third installment in a series culled from Dia's 'Artists on Artists' lectures, focused on the work of artist Andy Warhol (1928-87). This small-format paperback book delves into Warhol's oft-quoted phrase: "If you want to know all about Andy Warhol, just look at the surface: of my paintings and films and me, and there I am. There's nothing behind it." 'Artists on Andy Warhol' breaks down this iconic phrase to investigate Warhol's relationship with art, culture, language and race with essays that examine the significance of halftones and shadows and look to sources such as Ralph Ellison and Jacques Lacan. Together Robert Buck, Glenn Ligon, Jorge Pardo, Kara Walker and James Welling search beyond the surface of Warhol's work, persona and legacy to better understand the invisible artist

Photographs taken by Ari Marcopoulos in Rome (February - March 2016), and Malibu (August 2016). With a text contribution by Kara Walker. "Rome. (...) Here, no image or structure is complete without symbolic framing devices, which also require framing devices, and so on. Ad infinitum. Malibu. Rockstars and fallen rocks and the edge, here is where the European conquest of the New World meets its fountain of youth endgame. We have reached the end, and it is vast."
Kara Walker : Figa( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kara Walker's 'Figa', a sculpture monumental in both size and symbol, was installed at the Deste Foundation's Hydra Slaughterhouse in 2017. Once a part of Walker's colossal 2014 installation A Subtlety at the Domino Sugar Refinery in Brooklyn, Figa is made up of the hand piece from the anamorphic Sphinx that gestures a "fig sign", at once both a symbol of fertility and a "fuck you". In making a return to the site of the Sugar Factory work and the work's progeny in Hydra, this book offers critical insight on A Subtlety and Figa. Through extensive photographic documentation of the installation of the hand sculpture in Hydra by Ari Marcopoulos and seven fables written by Walker illustrating the power of folklore, mythology and black identity across the history of the United States, 'Figa' in book form captures a blockbuster exhibition in two parts

Kara Walker : narratives of a negress by Kara Elizabeth Walker( Book )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and Dutch and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kara Walker: Narratives of a Negress presents a comprehensive overview of Walker's work, beginning with her first cut-paper wall installation, Gone, An Historical Romance of a Civil War as it Occurred between the Dusky Thighs of One Young Negress and Her Heart, 1994, through new multimedia installations that feature layers of colored projections. The 1996 series of twenty-four watercolors, Brown Follies, is reproduced in full, as are many views of Walker's past exhibitions. Throughout the book is a selection of Walker's writings printed as they appear typed on index cards. These writings reveal a rarely seen side of the artist, whose words are as provocative as her installations and drawings. Also included are four essays that discuss Walker's place in art history, formal and narrative dimensions of her work, her relation to culture at large, and issues of race, sexuality, and representation addressed in her art."--Jacket
