Description

By Ian Alteveer, Helen Molesworth, Dieter Roelstraete, and Abigail Winograd

Published in conjunction with the major retrospective, Mastry, this definitive monograph volume celebrates the work of Kerry James Marshall (American, born 1955), one of America's greatest living painters. Born before the passage of the Civil Rights Act, in Birmingham, Alabama, and witness to the Watts riots in 1965, Marshall has long been an inspired and imaginative chronicler of the African American experience. Best known for large-scale interiors, landscapes, and portraits featuring powerful black figures, Marshall explores narratives of African American history from slave ships to the present and draws upon his deep knowledge of art history from the Renaissance to twentieth-century abstraction, as well as other sources such as the comic book and the muralist tradition.

With luscious color and brushstrokes and highly detailed patterning, his direct and intimate scenes of black middle-class life conjure a wide range of emotions, resulting in powerful paintings that confront the position of African Americans throughout American history. Richly illustrated, this monumental book features essays by noted curators as well as the artist, and more than 100 paintings from throughout the artist's career arranged thematically by subject: history painting; beauty, as expressed through the nude, portraiture, and self- portraiture; landscape; religion; and the politics of black nationalism.

Ian Alteveer is associate curator in the department of modern and contemporary art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

Helen Molesworth is the chief curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), Los Angeles.

Dieter Roelstraete is a curator of Documenta 14 and the former Manilow Senior Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago (MCA).

Abigail Winograd is a research associate at the MCA.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful catalog. I visited this amazing exhibit in November while in New York and then ordered the catalog when I was back in my home state. The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is that it can't possibly convey the effect of the largest canvases on the viewer. Also, the African American skin tones don't jump off the page the way they do in the original pictures. Still so happy to have this carefully produced catalog with good essays to boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well curated The images for this book were well chosen from such a deep archive. JKW is so brilliant, so moving. The exhibit itself @ The Met Breuer is exquisite and profoundly affecting. I just had to own the book. Got it for my birthday. I look at it daily to remind myself of my humanity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's almost like having the exhibit in my home The exhibit was phenomenal. The catalogue contains everything from the show; however, the pieces are gigantic and the book cannot capture that. It is well worth the price. The work is inspirational. I really love the use of black.
