Product description

A landmark anthology on British art history, bringing together overlooked and marginalized perspectives from 'the critical decade'

What is Black art and why don't we know more about it?

This bookpresents the histories, methodologies and sociopolitical perspectives of a generation of artists and writers who operated with and against the mainstream British art systems during the 1980s. Featuring the writings of artists such as Rasheed Araeen, Sonia Boyce, Eddie Chambers and Lubaina Himid, this anthology will provide access to a rich and multifaceted set of voices that have been locked away in archives until now.

In reflecting on their artistic practices, identities and the role of creative institutions, these pioneering artists of African, Caribbean and South Asian descent offer incisive commentary on social and political struggles that resonate powerfully today and a compelling vision for the future.
