Adrienne L. Childs, Renée Maurer, Valerie Cassel Oliver, Dorothy Kosinski

This volume explores how blackness has often been conceived from the standpoint of international and intergenerational connections and presents the divergent and complex works born of these dialogues. This groundbreaking catalog, which accompanies a major exhibition at the Phillips Collection in Washington, DC, explores the connections and frictions around modernism in the works of artists such as Romare Bearden, Pablo Picasso, Faith Ringgold, Renee Cox, Hank Willis Thomas, Carrie Mae Weems, and Henri Matisse.
