My book is out! Taking Stakes in the Unknown- Tracing Post Black Art
I thought I will never see it happing but I am thrilled to share the News that Taking Stakes in the Unknown is finally out with Trasnscript Verlag ( in Germany) and Columbia University Press ( in the US).
Here is a brief description and below a link to the Transcript page:
My book, Taking Stakes in the Unknown: Tracing Post-Black Art, contextualizes the term “post-Black” in its socio-historic and cultural contexts. It examines the legacy of Thelma Golden’s 2001 exhibition, “Freestyle,” and the works of participating artists who were defined as part of the “post-black” generation: Mark Bradford, Leslie Hewitt, Mickalene Thomas, and Hank Willis Thomas whilst expanding the discourse through the Black German artist Philip Metz.
