Beyond Mammy, Jezebel & Sapphire

Reclaiming Images of Black Women

Edited by Sigrid Asmus. Introduction by Jessica Hunter-Larsen, Megan Valentine. Foreword by Catherine M. Pears. Text by Heidi R. Lewis, Roland Mitchell, Takiyah Nur Amin, Velva Boles, Claire Garcia, Jean Gumpper, Kate Leonard, Venetria K. Patton, Sha'Condria Sibley, Karen Riley Simmons, Claudine Taaffe.

“C-Ration” (1991) by Lorna Simpson is reproduced from 'Beyond Mammy, Jezebel & Sapphire.'

Engaging a wide range of experiences, techniques and materials, the nine artists featured in this volume challenge the images of black women that continue to pervade our culture and influence perceptions: stereotypes such as the suffering mama, the angry black woman and the temptress. Brought together in this publication, works by Romare Bearden, Mildred Howard, Wangechi Mutu, Lorna Simpson, Kara Walker, Robert Colescott, Ellen Gallagher, Alison Saar and Mickalene Thomas disrupt expectations and replace simplistic narratives with nuanced, sophisticated meditations on contemporary identity.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Huffington Post

Priscilla Frank

deconstructs the limiting categorizations mainstream culture allows black women. The artists on view reveal the shoddy nature of the stereotypes in favor of challenging, poetic and thorough visualizations of black culture ? the myth, the archetype, the self-portrait and beyond…. underscores the fallacious nature of stereotyped images ? and the thunderous power of myth, archetype, detail, metaphor, self-portrait, collage, and, most importantly, black women artists, to overcome them.

Symbols that call us into being: 'Beyond Mammy, Jezebel & Sapphire'

Symbols that call us into being: 'Beyond Mammy, Jezebel & Sapphire'

“What do I know about Black women’s bodies,” Takiyah Nur Amin writes in Beyond Mammy, Jezebel & Sapphire: Reclaiming Images of Black Women. “I know that our mere presence is often perceived as a disruption to white joy, white pleasure—saying no words and rendered mute on a canvas makes no difference. What I know is that when Black women’s bodies are presented artistically beyond and outside stereotypical depictions, many of us try hard to squeeze those images back into a narrow and archaic frame. I know that looking at stylizations of Black women’s bodies here—in the fullness of their diversity—makes me feel, at least temporarily, a little more real, a little more understood, a little more actualized. Images have power…symbols call us into being.” Featured image is "I've Been a Witness to this Game IX" (2016) by Mildred Howard. continue to blog

Reclaiming Images of Black Women in 'Beyond Mammy, Jezebel & Sapphire'

In her essay, "Who Will Sing a Black Girl's Song," published in the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation catalogue, Beyond Mammy, Jezebel & Sapphire: Reclaiming Images of Black Women, Heidi R. Lewis cites the words of "the late, Black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet Audre Lorde," who wrote, "If I did not define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive." Featuring work by Wangechi Mutu, Kara Walker, Ellen Gallagher, Alison Saar, Mickalene Thomas and others, this volume is essential reading for anyone interested in Black History, Feminism, Womanism and beyond. Featured image is “C-Ration” (1991) by Lorna Simpson. continue to blog
