About this item

The remarkable talent of the artist Kerry James Marshall has already earned him a coveted MacArthur "genius" award and inclusion in recent Whitney Biennial, Carnegie International, and Documenta exhibitions. Marshall's art is provocative, eye-catching, political, and rich in literary and historical allusion. With this vibrantly illustrated monograph, which includes text by the artist himself on his development and on individual artworks, Abrams proudly introduces Marshall's work to a much wider general audience. Marshall's lyrical, Matissian images of the contemporary African-American urban experience are layered narratives of social order and disorder, of memories and myths. Gathered here are over 100 drawings, paintings, collages, stills from video projects, and installations. Literature lovers will find that Marshall's art recalls the work of Ralph Ellison, and those interested in social history and the civil-rights movement will see depictedin poignant, dreamlike scenes as strange as they are familiarthe everyday experiences of black Americans.
